Team Meat has announced that Super Meat Boy Forever will see release on Nintendo Switch – a sequel to their hard-as-nails platformer, Super Meat Boy.
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.
“To describe Super Meat Boy Forever as an auto-runner would be a disservice. It’s like saying that Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a game about a swordsman. Meat Boy / Bandage Girl do always run, but there is so much more to the game than running,” the developer explains.
“They can attack enemies, they can dash through the air, there are tons of levels, there are bosses, there are secrets, and there is a surprising amount of difficulty that doesn’t feel unfair. It’s everything you would expect a Super Meat Boy sequel to be.”
Super Meat Boy Forever will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in Summer 2018.
