The Meat Boy series is touching down on Nintendo Switch with Super Meat Boy Forever and bringing an exclusive wireless controller along with it.
Today at Nintendo’s Indie World Showcase, it was announced that Super Meat Boy will release December 23, 2020 for Nintendo Switch which is the same date as the PC release. The 2D platformer series is getting the royal treatment on Switch since it’s releasing first as a console exclusive alongside the PC version then, the PS4 and Xbox One versions will arrive a month later.
Here’s an overview of Super Meat Boy Forever (via GoNintendo):
This much anticipated sequel also moves the Meat Boy saga forward, as Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have had a child, Nugget, who has unfortunately been kidnapped by the sinister stillborn psychopath, Dr. Fetus (I hate that guy!). So now it’s up to Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, and some surprising new characters in the Meat Boy Cinematic Universe, to rescue the kidnapped child.
In the time since we saw him last, Meat Boy has been hitting the gym and he now packs a punch with an oversized, Battletoads-esque right fist that packs a mean whollup! Combined with new slide and plummet maneuvers, Meat Boy is more agile than ever!
What’s better than playing through Super Meat Boy Forever once? The answer is simple: Playing through Super Meat Boy Forever several times and having new levels to play each time! Levels are randomly generated and each time the game is completed the option to replay the game appears and generates a whole new experience by presenting different levels with their own unique secret locations. We’ve handcrafted literally thousands of levels for players to enjoy and conquer. You can replay Super Meat Boy Forever from start to finish several times before ever seeing a duplicate level. It is truly a remarkable feat of engineering and a monumental example of ignoring the limits of rational game design and production.
Additionally, Super Meat Boy is coming to Switch with an exclusive Super Meat Boy Wireless Switch controller from PowerA who has made a limited run of the controller which you can pre-order today at PowerA.com or on December 16, 2020 at Amazon.com
