First released on Xbox 360 in 2010, developer Team Meat announced today that Super Meat Boy is launching in Fall 2015 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita.
While it wasn’t said if the game will include cross-buy, PlayStation Plus members will be getting Super Meat Boy for free when it launches, as Team Meat’s Tommy Refenes explained:
That’s our way of saying “Thank you for waiting patiently” to all those PlayStation fans that reached out to us over the years only to get back a “we can’t do it, sorry” response. We love you guys and girls and we’re so happy that you can finally play Super Meat Boy on your system of choice!
When Super Meat Boy first came out, Team Meat realized PlayStation fans wanted the game on PlayStation 3. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t possible:
When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to PS3 for very complicated reasons. They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn’t have it. They felt their pain as PlayStation fans had to suffer for years without the greatest platformer ever made by two guys named Tommy and Edmund [McMillen]. Team Meat was very sad about this, but what could they do? Their hands were tied.
Thanks to an “unexpected gift” earlier this year though, it’s made the PS4 and PS Vita re-release of Super Meat Boy possible.
Are you excited to be getting Super Meat Boy on PlayStation later this year?
