Team Meat has released a new trailer for Super Meat Boy Forever, which will see release on the Epic Games Store later this month.
It is unclear when the game will come to Nintendo Switch, after the developer indefinitely delayed its release beyond April 2019.
“Super Meat Boy was a massive success that changed my life forever and people had been clamoring for a sequel for ages,” explains Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes.
“But I didn’t just want to deliver more of the same and call it a day. Meat Boy deserved more than that. I wanted to rebuild Meat Boy from the ground up, in a way that would offer an entirely new experience that still hits all the same kinetic, addictive notes as its predecessor. I know Super Meat Boy Forever took forever to make but we’re confident that it was worth the wait.”
In the Super Meat Boy sequel, when Dr. Fetus kidnaps Meat Boy and Bandage Girl’s little baby called Nugget they are forced to set out to rescue her – leaping off walls, dodging buzz saws, and performing incredible 2D platforming feats.
However, this time around levels are dynamically constructed based on difficulty and, once you have beaten a level, it will reconstruct into a harder version. Meat Boy and Bandage Girl can now punch and kick their enemies, with the control scheme now requiring two buttons that will let players perform a jump, a jump attack, a dive, or a slide.
Super Meat Boy Forever will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide in 2021.
