Its been 5 years since Super Meat Boy was released on PC and Xbox 360, but at long last, Team Meat has announced that their beloved indie platformer will be making its way to PlayStation hardware later this year.
Released back in 2010, Super Meat Boy was an incredible little platformer that put you in control of a small, skinless, cube-shaped character called Meat Boy. With his girlfriend – Bandage Girl – kidnapped by the evil Dr Fetus, you have to help Meat Boy battle through a series of difficult platforming stages, in the bid to rescue his love and stop Dr Fetus. With a level of difficulty that harks back to the eras of Super Mario Bros and Ghost’n Goblines, Super Meat Boy is as frustrating as it is rewarding, with yours truly having finished the game already on the original Steam version.
Along with the follow-up Super Meat Boy: Forever expected to launch later, Team Meat is also currently working on Mew-Genics – a “cat lady” simulation title in which you breed and raise cats. No release dates as of yet for these titles.
Super Meat Boy is expected to launch later this year for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, with PS Plus users expected to receive the game free at launch. In the meantime, feel free to check the following announcement teaser down below. You can also purchase Super Meat Boy for $14.99 from Steam and Xbox Live (360 version).
