It has certainly been a long time coming for Super Meat Boy to make its way to a Nintendo console, with the original WiiWare version of the game being cancelled in 2010. However, it won’t be much longer until Nintendo gamers finally get to see what all the fuss is about.
Developer Team Meat made the announcement on Twitter, revealing that the game will see its launch on the Wii U on May 12th. The game will be compatible with both the gamepad and pro controller, allowing you a bit more flexibility with controls in a game where precise controls are very important.
Super Meat Boy originally saw its release in 2010 on the Xbox 360, immediately getting rave reviews for its challenge and humor. The game got a PC release shortly afterwards, though it wasn’t until last year that the game finally released on PlayStation consoles.
As for what else the developer is working on, it was recently revealed that they had decided to put their intriguing-looking game called Mew-Genics on the backburner. The dev’s Edmund McMillen is now working on The Legend of Bum-bo, with more information on that coming later this year.
