[This unedited press release is made available courtesy of Gamasutra and its partnership with notable game PR-related resource Games Press.]
Redmond, Washington, April 16th, 2021 - Super Meat Boy Forever, Team Meat’s long, long awaited sequel to 2010’s runaway platforming hit Super Meat Boy, is out now on PlayStation 4 & 5 and Xbox One & Series X/S for $19.99 / £15.99  / €15.99, with a 10% discount available at launch for one week.

This much anticipated sequel also moves the Meat Boy saga forward, as Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have had a child, Nugget, who has unfortunately been kidnapped by the sinister stillborn psychopath, Dr. Fetus (I hate that guy!). So now it’s up to Meat Boy, Bandage Girl, and some surprising new characters in the Meat Boy Cinematic Universe, to rescue the kidnapped child.

In the time since we saw him last, Meat Boy has been hitting the gym and he now packs a punch with an oversized, Battletoads-esque right fist that packs a mean whollup! Combined with new slide and plummet maneuvers, Meat Boy is more agile than ever!

What’s better than playing through Super Meat Boy Forever once? The answer is simple: Playing through Super Meat Boy Forever several times and having new levels to play each time! We’ve handcrafted literally thousands of levels for players to enjoy and conquer. You can replay Super Meat Boy Forever from start to finish several times before ever seeing a duplicate level. It is truly a remarkable feat of engineering and a monumental example of ignoring the limits of rational game design and production.

Super Meat Boy was a tribute to the golden era of console platformers, so it’s a joy to have his long-awaited latest adventure now available on all contemporary home consoles,” said Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes. “Super Meat Boy Forever ushers in Meat Boy for the new era, where his world has been fleshed out with close to 6000 hand-made levels that are endlessly remixed using our procedural algorithm, a huge variety of power-ups, and all sorts of secrets to discover. Every replay will give you something brand new, and with all the optional challenges, Super Meat Boy Forever really can be played forever!”

About Meat Boy
Meat Boy took the world by storm in 2008 when it was conceived as a free Flash game by developers Edmund McMillen and Jonathan McEntee. This devilishly difficult love letter to arcade platformers went so viral that over 8 million people played it. Due to its popularity, Team Meat founders Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes collaborated on a commercial successor that became the 2010 megahit Super Meat Boy, which went on to sell over a million copies in its first 15 months. Nearly eight years later, Super Meat Boy is still capturing the populace’s imagination as its Switch port’s launch sales nearly matched that of its 2010 debut on Xbox 360. The franchise’s latest project, Super Meat Boy Forever, was released on Epic Games Store on December 23rd 2020, with Xbox One and PlayStation versions to follow in early 2021.
