Looks like we might see de Blob back in action at some point.  According to IGN, de Blob has done very well since it launched in September last year.  The NPD data shows that de Blob sold through 230,000 units through December.  By contrast, Nintendo’s own Wario Land Shake It, which released the same day as de Blob, sold only 150,000 in the same period.  Here’s what THQ had to say about the sales:

A spokesperson for the company indicated that de Blob’s solid American sales beginnings are only half the story. “We’re pleased with de Blob’s performance worldwide,” the rep noted. “It’s a great intellectual property and you can tell your readers to expect to see more of de Blob in the future.”
