In their e-mail newsletter, publisher Limited Run Games announced that they will be releasing a physical version of the classic tough-as-nails 2D platformer Super Meat Boy on PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Nintendo Switch in the "next few months".

The game is already available for pre-order at Best Buy on Nintendo Switch with copies shipping from the 8th of February, although LRG note they will also offer a collector's edition exclusively through their site.

Read the game's features below:

Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as an animated cube of meat who's trying to save his girlfriend (who happens to be made of bandages) from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a tux.

Our meaty hero will leap from walls, over seas of buzz saws, through crumbling caves and pools of old needles. Sacrificing his own well being to save his damsel in distress. Super Meat Boy brings the old school difficulty of classic NES titles like Mega Man 2, Ghost and Goblins and Super Mario Bros. 2 (The Japanese one) and stream lines them down to the essential no BS straight forward twitch reflex platforming. 

Ramping up in difficulty from hard to soul crushing SMB will drag Meat boy though haunted hospitals, salt factories and even hell itself. And if 300+ single player levels weren't enough SMB also throws in epic boss fights, a level editor and tons of unlock able secrets, warp zones and hidden characters.

  • Story mode, featuring over 300 levels spanning 5+ chapters
  • Warp zones that will warp you into other games
  • Over 16 unlockable able and playable characters from popular indie titles such as, Minecraft, Bit.Trip, VVVVVV and Machinarium
  • Epic Boss fights
  • A story so moving you will cry yourself to sleep for the rest of your life

You need to be a serious fan to want to pay $29.99 for the physical where you can simply just buy it digitally for $4.49 on PSN :/

That's not unusual for limited run games, they're mostly intended for collectors and physical media fans.

This is the only reason I buy digital versions of Indie games. They are usually 1/4th the asking price of the physical versions. I mean, imagine if on day one, the digital version of a AAA game were only $20, with the physical version selling for $80.

So they're releasing a physical version for the Vita... But not the Xbox? Shots fired.

I don't believe Limited Runs has a deal with Microsoft. I get Switch stuff from them all the time and they only offer PS4/Vita/Switch it seems.

Well, this game deserves a physical release but, if it comes without the original soundtrack, it's a no deal to me.
