Remember that old stuff? Well it's coming back a bit newer. In this case, we're talking Putty Squad, an updated take on the classic platformer from 1994. System 3 has talked idly about the game for several years, including aborted plans for it to be a European Vita launch title, but today dropped a trailer and word that it's coming to a whole heap of platforms.
Putty Squad lets you become, after so many years of wishing and dreaming, a squidy blob of putty. It has the powers to inflate, morph, stretch, lie flat and absorb, which coincidentally you'll need to get around and beat the levels.
It's the same basic formula as the original game, but "reinvigorated and reimaged" according to System 3. Supposedly, it "Plays even better now than it did originally."
The game's due to finally launch this summer on Windows 8, Xbox 360, PS3, Vita, Wii U, and 3DS.
