Super Meat Boy Forever will leap onto PC and Nintendo Switch later this month.

This week’s Nintendo Indie World presentation was packed with cool announcements (Spelunky 2, Among Us, Spelunky 1!) but let’s focus on a game we’ve been tracking for a long time, Super Meat Boy Forever.

Team Meat’s sequel has been given a confirmed released date of December 23 and will debut on Nintendo Switch and PC. If you buy the game before release, you can also pick up a 10% discount on the $19.99 list price. PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game are due to land in January 2021.

The game follows Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl’s quest to rescue their child Nugget, who has been snatched by the dastardly Dr Fetus. As you might expect, that rescue involves a lot of jumping and dying and jumping and dying and jumping and dying.

Super Meat Boy Forever isn’t just more of the same, however. The formula gets a shake-up with new slide and plummet moves. Also, the game’s levels are randomly sequenced from thousands of pre-made stages each time you start. Each time the game is is completed, you can restart and enjoy a whole new experience.

Speaking about the game, Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes says:

“Super Meat Boy was a massive success that changed my life forever and people had been clamoring for a sequel for ages. But I didn’t just want to deliver more of the same and call it a day. Meat Boy deserved more than that. I wanted to rebuild Meat Boy from the ground up, in a way that would offer an entirely new experience that still hits all the same kinetic, addictive notes as its predecessor. I know Super Meat Boy Forever took forever to make but we’re confident that it was worth the wait.”

To coincide with the release, PowerA has also produced an officially-licenced wireless Nintendo Switch controller. It will be released tomorrow exclusively from Amazon and is pretty tasty we have to admit.
