Super Meat Boy is Finally Coming to PS4, PS Vita in 2015

Team Meat has announced that Super Meat Boy is finally coming to both Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita.

The game first launched for PC and Xbox 360 way back in 2010. The game will be free for PlayStation Plus subscribers at launch. Featured above, you can view the tongue-in-cheek announcement trailer for the new PS4 and PS Vita ports.

On the Playstation Blog, Team Meat co-founder Tommy Refenes gave a somewhat nebulous explanation behind the game’s lack of a Playstation version:

When Super Meat Boy was launched, Team Meat wasn’t allowed to bring it to PS3 for very complicated reasons. They hated that they had to alienate the loyal PlayStation fans who desperately wanted the game but couldn’t have it. They felt their pain as PlayStation fans had to suffer for years without the greatest platformer ever made by two guys named Tommy and Edmund. Team Meat was very sad about this, but what could they do? Their hands were tied.

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. Even though the path would be difficult they knew they owed it to their fans to at least try.

Fast forward to today. We walked that arduous path and with a lot of hard work, a little convincing, and huge scoops of luck we are now here today with huge smiles on our faces to say:
