Super Meat Boy hits PS4, PS Vita this fall, will be a free PS Plus title

Super Meat Boy is heading to PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita this fall, co-creator Tommy Refenes announced today on the game's official website.

"When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn't allowed to bring it to the PlayStation for very complicated reasons," Refenes wrote. "They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn't have it ... Earlier this year, Team Meat got an unexpected gift. The gods smiled upon them and opened up a teeny tiny sliver of a path that could eventually lead them to re-release Super Meat Boy."

Upon release, it will be available to PlayStation Plus members for free.

Super Meat Boy was first released in 2010 for Xbox 360 as part of Microsoft's GameFeast promotion; the developer has been critical of Microsoft's handling of the game, calling it a "mind fuck." It was released for Steam and other PC platforms later that year.

"We actually never ever EVER thought this day would come and it makes us both so happy that it's finally here," Refenes wrote. "We know this has been a long time coming but better late than never. Expect to be playing Super Meat Boy on your PlayStation 4s and PlayStation Vitas later this year."
