Meat Boy goes stereoscopic in Retro City Rampage

Today is May 31... HEY! Wasn't Retro City Rampage supposed to come out this month? Briiiiiiaaaaaan! You've got some 'splainin' to doooooooooooo!

In all seriousness, the game is finished and running through a final bug check. Unfortunately, it's going to miss its scheduled release month. Perhaps the above trailer for the previously unseen "Virtual Meat Boy" minigame will satisfy your cravings for a while.

Playing like Rad Racer or 3-D WorldRunner, "Virtual Meat Boy" is an auto-scrolling runner starring Team Meat's undercooked hero. As the title implies, the minigame is rendered in the Virtual Boy's eye-searing red-and-black color scheme, but with the flick of a switch, it can be played in stereoscopic 3D! Still have those cardboard glasses lying around?

"Virtual Meat Boy" is the second crossover minigame, following the 'Splosion Man tie-in. A third minigame starring CommanderVideo from the BIT.TRIP series will be playable at E3 next week, so stay tuned for that!
