Super Meat Boy To Release On Switch In Two Weeks

Releasing with a two-player split screen mode.

The indie platforming title, Super Meat Boy has been confirmed to release on Nintendo’s Switch on January 11th 2018, and Switch players will be getting something a little extra for this port of the game. Players are getting something called Race Mode with the Switch version, This mode lets two players compete head-to-head for the fastest time via split-screen. This mode may appear in other versions of the game, but it’s being tested first on Switch.

It’s a perfect addition to the Switches two-player emphasis, I hope it performs well when it launches in the coming weeks.

Don’t know what Super Meat Boy is about? Check out the game’s official excerpt, below.


‘Dr. Fetus is being a jerk again (as he does), but this time he’s kidnapped Meat Boy and Bandage Girl’s adorable little baby girl, named Nugget! Meat Boy and Bandage Girl will be put through the grinder (THAT ISN’T A MEAT JOKE SHUT UP) as they jump, slide, punch and kick through 6 chapters containing randomly constructed levels that increase in difficulty each time you rank them up. Beat a level, it ranks, next time you play it you get a harder version of that level until you eventually master it! There are bosses, secrets, dying, awesome music, beautiful art, and dying! Also if that isn’t enough, there is a Dark World with extremely hard levels for those of you that like that sort of thing.’
