The rumors finally came true! No, I'm not going to prom with the love of my life, but Nintendo fans are sure getting a treat! Back in October, Edmund McMillen, the co-designer of Super Meat Boy started hinting at a possible release for the Wii-U, stating "We haven't forgotten about you Wii gamers. After all, it is all about U". Now, it has become a reality. WII-U will receive the game in a couple of months, once a few tweaks and adjustments are added to it. Xbox One and PS4 users, as well as PS Vita users have been able to play Super Meat boy due to backwards compatibility for the Xbox One and for the game being re-released on Playstation.
Super Meat Boy was first introduced as an indie-game back in 2010 when it first released for the Xbox 360. The game in itself is beyond crazy, with over 300 levels divided into chapters. You're a cube-shaped block, trying to save your heavily bandaged girlfriend Bandage Girl from an evil scientist named Dr. Fetus. The game isn't as easy as it looks, as you have to constantly dodge traps, saw blades, and crumbling rocks on your way to rescuing your girl. You can play the levels in any order you wish, however, you must complete a certain amount of levels to access the boss stage. Once you beat the boss, you move onto the next chapter and repeat the process all over again.
Super Meat Boy also played a very big role in a documentary that was released in 2012 called Indie Game: The Movie. It documented the creators of certain indie games, with SMB being one of them. Although not an extremely popular movie, it is an eye opener and a really good way to get a "behind-the-scenes" look on things from a different perspective.
I do not own a WII-U, however I do own Super Meat Boy on the Xbox One and I can say personally that I'm still struggling to beat all these levels. However, for those of you that do own a WII-U, are you excited to finally be able to play one of the most popular indie games out there today? Will you be picking it up the day of release?
