THQ Nordic has staple-gunned a release date to the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One versions of de Blob 2, confirming the colourful platform sequel will launch for current-generation systems on February 27.

Previously remastered for the PC last year, de Blob 2 sees the titular hero returning to battle the nefarious Comrade Black, who has begun waging war against all things colour. This doesn't sit well with de Blob, who takes it upon himself to restore peace to Prisma City and thwart Black's dastardly schemes.

The sequel features 12 new single-player missions to tackle, which play host to some epic boss battles and all-new power-ups. Multiplayer support is also included, allowing you to team up with a mate via split-screen. 

Our hero is equipped with all manner of diverse abilities to help him stop Black too, with gamers able to speed smash, jet jump, and slam squash their way across Prisma City as they wage war in the Colour Revolution.
