A Boy And His Blob

A Boy And His Blob for the NES was one of the best (and most difficult, IMO) entries in the system's incredible library. You controlled the titular Boy and you would feed your Blob different flavored jellybeans, causing him to turn into various objects like ladders, bubbles, and trampolines to help you deal with whatever situation you came across. I have many fond memories of playing this game while wearing footed pajamas.

Well, the Boy and the Blob are getting an all new adventure on the Wii, and
I'm officially excited.

Nintendo Power broke the story in their most recent issue, but you can check out all the drool-worthy screenshots over at Kotaku. Seriously, the game looks gorgeous.

Currently, the game is slated for a Fall '09 release. I'll be waiting impatiently.

Thanks to Kotaku for the heads up.
