After several years of development, the release date of Super Meat Boy Forever was finally narrowed down. A new trailer is also available for viewing at the bottom of this article.
In the past few years, the developers of Team Meat have been working feverishly on the completion of the platformer Super Meat Boy Forever, which, to the distress of the fans, was delayed numerous times.
After it was announced at The Game Awards 2020 that Super Meat Boy Forever will be available for the PC from December 23, 2020, the release date of the other platforms has now been limited. The title will be supplied on Nintendo Switch with the successor on December 23, 2020, just like the PC. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 are due coming in January 2021.
In terms of play, nothing has changed in the title. Just like the first part, which has become a cult title, the successor sees itself as a rock-hard 2D platformer, which should really challenge even long-time fans of the genre. Not less than 5,500 different levels are promised, guaranteeing sufficient variety.
Check the overview of the game below, via Team Meat:
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! Levels are randomly generated and each time the game is completed the option to replay the game appears and generates a whole new experience by presenting different levels with their own unique secret locations. 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.
Here is the latest trailer for the game, which gives you another look at the sequel.
