It took forever, but my absolute favorite indie game will finally be coming to Sony platforms. I’ve already suffered my way through Super Meat Boy on the Xbox 360 and on Steam, but there’s nothing really stopping me from going through it a third time when it launches for the PlayStation 4 and, wahoo, the PS Vita!
Co-creator Tommy Refenes announced the port on the game’s official website.
“When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to the PlayStation 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 … 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.”
As an added bonus, those with PlayStation Plus can pick it up for free during its first month of availability through the Instant Game Collection.
“We actually never ever EVER thought this day would come and it makes us both so happy that it’s finally here. 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.”
All right! Bring on the pain! Pour salt on my open wounds and blast me with homing missiles. I’m ready!
