Super Meat Boy Coming to PS4 and Vita, Free on PS+


Super Meat Boy, the indie game developed by Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, is coming to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Refenes revealed the news earlier today on the PlayStation blog.

“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,” Refenes wrote. “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.”

Super Meat Boy was one of the games featured on the 2012 documentary, Indie Game: The Movie. The documentary depicts Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes and their struggles in developing the game.

In addition to its PlayStation 4 and Vita release, Super Meat Boy will be available as a free game for PS Plus subscribers.

“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!”

Although Refenes did not give an exact date for Super Meat Boy‘s release, the announcement trailer indicates that the game will come to PlayStation this fall.
