Super Meat Boy sequel announced for consoles, PC and mobile

Levels get harder each time you replay them.

UPDATE: It turns out it's not exclusive to Switch after all, but also coming to PC, PS4, Xbox One, iOS and Android.

The Nintendo stream noted said "Super Meat Boy Forever will make its debut on Nintendo Switch," which we interpreted as launching exclusively on Switch, but the developer has since clarified that this is not the case. Apologies for the error!

ORIGINAL STORY: Cult classic platformer Super Meat Boy is getting a sequel that will launch exclusively on Switch in 2018.

Super Meat Boy can punch in this unexpected sequel.

It's called Super Meat Boy Forever, a title that may sound familiar as it was originally announced as a mobile game before getting stuck in development limbo.

The game gets its name from the fact that each stage in Super Meat Boy Forever can be replayed endlessly and will get harder each time you revisit it.

Beyond that, it will have Daily Challenges, meaning you really can play it forever as you compete with your friends.

Super Meat Boy Forever will be a true sequel too, in that the story is set after the first game. This time Super Meat Boy and his partner Bandage Girl have a kid together named Nugget. So of course the nefarious Dr. Fetus kidnaps this beefy offspring.

Developer Team Meat previously announced that the original Super Meat Boy would be making its way onto Switch. It sounds like that will also be the case, though no release window has been announced for the original title.
