The brutally difficult platformer is seemingly upon us at last.
As if The Game Awards weren’t packed with huge announcements already, Team Meat confirmed that Super Meat Boy Forever will be launching on December 23rd. You’ll probably remember the brutal platformer being slated for release in April 2019 before facing another delay. Better late than never, at this point.
Super Meat Boy Forever will be available on the Epic Games Store for $19.99. It will remain exclusive to the storefront for one year – whether other platforms will receive it on the same date is unknown. At least the game’s auto-running style mixed with punching, kicking, jumping and split-second timing is intact.
Why has it been taking so long though? According to co-designer and programmer Tommy Refenes last year, the aim was to launch with 5,500 levels. Other features include 55 minutes worth of animated cutscenes, Dark World levels and more. There will even be DLC down the line for making levels “ridiculously hard.” Stay tuned for more details (and hopefully not another delay) in the coming weeks.
