Super Meat Boy finally comes to the Nintendo eShop.
You’ve probably played the game. You’ve certainly seen the movie. And you have maybe even bought the T-shirt. Six years after its initial release the infuriating but brilliant Super Meat Boy finally comes to a Nintendo console. Arriving on Wii U this Thursday, the game also receives a launch discount – to thank everyone for their patience, we assume.
Elsewhere, the under appreciated Wii Mario sports game Mario Strikers Charged Football also comes to Nintendo’s home console.
And on 3DS, the pick of the – rather slender – bunch is a Virtual Console release for Contra III The Alien Wars.
Here’s the full release list.
Nintendo eShop releases for 12th May 2016
- Super Meat Boy – €11.20/ £10.40 / CHF 15.60 until 26/05/2016, 22:59 UTC.
- Pixel Slime U – €2.99/ £2.69 / CHF 4.20
