Super Meat Boy Wii U Finally Gets Release Date

Super Meat Boy Wii U Finally Gets Release Date

Super Meat Boy will be available for the Wii U from May 12, creator Team Meat has announced.

The critically acclaimed platformer has had a long road to release. Having initially been announced for the Nintendo Wii, the port was later cancelled, then re-announced for the Wii U.

The Wii U version is being developed externally by BlitWorks.

Super Meat Boy co-designer Tommy Refenes strongly suggested that a Wii U version of the game was in the works In October 2015.

“To the fan’s we’re still excluding I’ll leave you with this: Wii haven’t forgotten about U,” he said at the time.

Super Meat Boy was first released for Xbox 360 in 2010. It has since been made available on many more platforms, including Xbox One–through backwards compatibility–as well as PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.

The PS4 and PS Vita versions of Super Meat Boy do not include the game’s original soundtrack, however. This is due to licensing issues. It’s not clear if the Wii U edition will have the original soundtrack or the new one.
