Super Meat Boy is nearly set to make its way onto the Wii U. One of the game’s creators indicated the porting work is wrapping up, and that the world should be playing it “in a couple months.”
One of the games featured in the praised Indie Game: The Movie, Super Meat Boy originally released on Xbox 360 and PC platforms in 2010. The deliriously difficult platformer then made the jump to the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita in late 2016. The catch, though, was that the original soundtrack didn’t make it to new platforms. The new one is, well, okay.
Now, Super Meat Boy and its new soundtrack are coming to the Wii U. Programmer and Designer Tommy Refenes tweeted about porting company BlitWorks’ progress last week.
Super Meat Boy is coming to WiiU very very very soon. @BlitWorks is wrapping it up and you should be playing it in a couple months! Hooray!

So, we’re a couple of months out from Super Meat Boy on the Wii U. That makes just about every modern platform capable of playing Super Meat Boy. Though it’s not on the Xbox One officially, it can be played by way of Xbox 360 backwards compatibility. Also, there’s no 3DS version.
Original soundtrack or not, this is a great platformer. If you haven’t played Super Meat Boy yet and you prefer to game on your Wii U, check this one out when it launches down the line.
