Super Meat Boy Coming to PS4, PS Vita (Yes, Really!)

Once upon a time, two friends named Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen got together to make a game. They called that game “Super Meat Boy”. They were forced to form a company by “the Man” and that company was given the name “Team Meat”, they did not pick this name, it was on some promotional information for a press event they attended and being the savvy businessmen they are they took a note from Warren “G” Buffett and rolled with it. For 18 months they both slaved away creating the greatest platformer they possibly could. The process was hard and very well documented in Indie Game: The Movie. Neither Tommy nor Edmund expected Super Meat Boy to be a huge success. Much to their surprise, everyone wanted the game, including some very disappointed PlayStation fans.

Super Meat Boy on PS4 & PS Vita

When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to PS3 for very complicated reasons. They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn’t have it. They felt their pain as PlayStation fans had to suffer for years without the greatest platformer ever made by two guys named Tommy and Edmund. Team Meat was very sad about this, but what could they do? Their hands were tied.

Earlier this year, Team Meat got an unexpected gift. The gods smiled upon them and opened up a teeny tiny sliver of a path that could eventually lead them to re-release Super Meat Boy. Even though the path would be difficult they knew they owed it to their fans to at least try.

Fast forward to today. We walked that arduous path and with a lot of hard work, a little convincing, and huge scoops of luck we are now here today with huge smiles on our faces to say:

SUPER MEAT BOY IS COMING TO PS4 AND PLAYSTATION VITA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Super Meat Boy on PS4 & PS Vita

Crazy right?! We actually never ever EVER thought this day would come and it makes us both so happy that it’s finally here! We know this has been a long time coming but better late than never. Expect to be playing Super Meat Boy on your PS4 and PS Vita later this year.

Oh…and we almost forgot: It’s going to be free on PlayStation Plus at launch. That’s our way of saying “Thank you for waiting patiently” to all those PlayStation fans that reached out to us over the years only to get back a “we can’t do it, sorry” response. We love you guys and girls and we’re so happy that you can finally play Super Meat Boy on your system of choice!

Here’s a trailer for your viewing pleasure, spread the word!

  • Question: Will the Vita version be compatible with the PSTV?

  • I’ve never tried this game and although interested it wasn’t enough for me to dust off and run the old 360 after over 18 months collecting dust so I’m happy at the announcement. Would have purchased it day 1 on the Vita to play it but being part of the IGC is an added bonus!

    Pretty strange launch trailer by the way………….

  • Congrats on bringing this to PlayStation. I’ve seen a lot of positive comments and recommendations, but this isn’t a game I ever wanted to buy because I also read many comments about it being brutally hard. I’m glad it’ll be in the IGC, though. I’ll give it a try.

  • @Reaper527_ If you dont like the games offered on PS+ then stop being subscribed to them, then you can spend your $50 on sales like TeamGreen615 suggested. Sales that are usually way better if subscibed to PS+ though. and if on the PS4 youll have to stick to single player games since you wont be able to play online. But at least youll be able to get games you want! I mean sure 1 game you buy on PSN depending on its price can equal to 6-78 ($10-$60) games on PS+, but hey that one game is what you wanted right? and thats what matters :)

  • @Reaper527_ Oh forgot to mention to remember to manually tranfer that 1 game you really want’s saves to a USB every day because youll no longer be able to save onto the cloud at all let alone automatically.

    what im trying to say is, check your privilege Reaper527_

  • That trailer you linked is pretty disgusting

  • …and to PS TV, riiight?

    (But why the PS3 pass?)

  • @54/55

    if the best thing you can say about the quality of igc games is “look at all of the other features ps+ brings to the table”, that speaks volumes about the quality of the lineup.

  • Progress import from Steam please!

  • I’ll be happy when you guys bring Monaco to PS4 and Vita.

  • @Reaper527_ well if your complaining about the games im not going to rebuttle with “the games are awesome” because obviously to you they’re not and thats your oppinion. To me PS+ has offered some of the best games ive played Indie or not in the past year. What im pointing out is no one is forcing you to have PS+ and if the games are all that matters to you, and not the rediculous other rewards with having PS+, then stop paying for it. Stop being a privileged little kid paying for a optional service only to complain about it. Check that privilege and either appreciate the AMAZING value PS+ is, games or/and otherwise, or leave the PS+ family, we won’t miss you :)

  • Can’t wait to play!

    Super Meat Boy is arguably my favorite game of all time.

    If you haven’t played this game before, you’re in for a real treat. This game is the perfection of platforming. It doesn’t get any better than this in my opinion.

    The game has perfect controls, and plays amazingly on a gamepad. Prior to this announcement, the XB360 was the only console to get a “proper” version of this game. The PC got a port but it’s prone to crashing if you ALT+TAB in fullscreen, etc and using a keyboard to play the game feels nowhere as good as it does to use a controller.

    This game is also the grand-daddy of indie games, before everyone started releasing indie games left and right.

  • Physical retail or don’t care.

  • I prefer PlayStation but i had to get this on Xbox at first and eventually PC. Lovely game, but i great it’s far too late to release this again. Then again, it is free.

  • “When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to PS3 for very complicated reasons.”
    Uhm, they signed a contract that didn’t let them bring the game to PS3. They knew full well what they signed. Not very complicated reasons.

  • AWESOME. Can’t wait to play it on the Vita.

  • Gave up hope and played it on Steam, but will play it again on my PS family. Awesome!

  • One of, if not THE, best platform game in a long time!
    I’ve pay for it on Steam, I’ve pay for it on Xbox 360, and I’ll play it now on the perfect machine for indies: Vita!
    I never thought this day would come… and little by little, The Man is getting weaker…

  • You know.. I really wouldn’t buy this again simply because it was hard enough getting through it the first time. Then you guys had to go and make it FREE! Okay, fine, my hands are tied too, I’ll play it on my Vita! Thanks.

  • This totally made my day!! THANK YOU GUYS!
    SMB on the vita omg that’t can’t be cooler!!
    Can’t wait for it :D

  • Awesome. Can’t wait to play this on the vita. Keep posting positive comments guys! Drown out the negativity :)

  • Hey Tommy. Please make sure that the Vita version is PSTV compatible. Thanks!

  • Looking forward to it

  • Since I started freelancing I’ve been bringing in $90 bucks/h… I sit at home and i am doing my work from my laptop. Th℮ best thing is that i get more time to spent with my family and with my kids and in the same time i can earn enough to support them… You can do it too. Start here…

  • Looks neat. Can we get a PS2 port?

  • Very dope!

  • Awesome! ;)

  • I don’t know if Vita is the best choice for this… I mean, with a pc you can just throw your mouse at he wall… with a console, your controller.

    But with the vita… you’ll have to throw the VITA at the wall… I don’t know that that is the best idea ;)

    But seriously… glad to see another good indy releasing free for ps+.

  • Free with PS Plus at launch :O…you guys are awesome! Can’t wait to finally play this. I love those frustratingly hard but super fun games, which is what I’ve heard about Super Meat Boy from everybody I know who’s played it.

  • Vita forever.

  • This reply thing may not have been the best idea…

    • It’s pretty neat. Beats typing @Blahblah and hoping that someone actually reads the reply.
      of course, it’s going to be abused.

  • Holy mother of god. This is awesome! I beat most of the game on PC with a shoddy controller in window mode to avoid lag(eh, my computer at that time was… old, to say the least).

    I can’t wait to play it on the big screen!

  • “We will never release Super Meat Boy on Sony systems”

    Years later.
    “HUZZAH SUPER MEAT BOY ON SONY SYSTEMS”

    Lol. Guess that exclusivity contract ran out.

  • cant wait tell it comes out for Psvita
