Thanks to it’s gameplay which is both equally challenging and frustrating, Team Meat’s “Super Meat Boy” has been a popular indie platformer that has seen success on the Xbox 360 and PC scene. Now later this year, the game will finally jump to the PS4 and Vita.
“When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to the PlayStation for very complicated reasons,” game’s co-creator Tommy Refenes wrote on the official website. “They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn’t have it … Earlier this year, Team Meat got an unexpected gift. The gods smiled upon them and opened up a teeny tiny sliver of a path that could eventually lead them to re-release Super Meat Boy.”
“We actually never ever EVER thought this day would come and it makes us both so happy that it’s finally here,” the post continued. “We know this has been a long time coming but better late than never. Expect to be playing Super Meat Boy on your PlayStation 4s and PlayStation Vitas later this year.”
The best part is that upon it’s release, PSPlus subscribers will get the game for free. So far there has been no mention of any additional features or updates to the game for the new version.
