Super Meat Boy Forever runs, jumps, and splats onto PS4 and Xbox One next week


If at first you don't succeed... die, die, again

Team Meat has announced that its sweat-inducing platformer Super Meat Boy Forever will finally be bringing its gooey, multi-death action to PS4 and Xbox One on April 16, following on from its release on PC and Nintendo Switch back in January.

Super Meat Boy Forever sees our bloody, cubic friend, (accompanied by Bandage Girl and a battalion of unlockable guest stars), partake in a non-stop gauntlet of procedurally generated levels, auto-running their way through buzzsaws, salt fountains, deadly drops, spike pits and other hazards as they attempt to rescue their mischievous child, Nugget, from the clutches of the returning Dr. Fetus.

While the style and aesthetic of Team Meat's seminal 2010 release is instantly recognizable, SMB Forever takes risks with its gameplay which do not entirely pay off. The sequel's dramatic cutscenes, wicked sense of humor, sharp visuals, and creative boss battles are a treat, but the lack of character control, auto-run mechanics, and world seed system might not be to everyone's taste. Regardless, SMB Forever is a decent, challenging platformer, and worth a few of your lazy afternoons.

Super Meat Boy Forever launches April 16 on PS4 and Xbox One. Check out our review right here.
