Super Meat Boy Finally Gets A Nintendo Switch Release Date

Team Meat, it’s time to get stoked because Super Meat Boy finally has a solid release date for the Nintendo Switch! The port to the hybrid console was mentioned months ago, but haven’t had a more precise window of release until now, and luckily – it’s going to be here sooner than you think!

The reveal came from the Team Meat twitter account bearing good news:

Not only do we have a January 11th release date, but it looks like the port will also come equipped with a new race mode that is designed specifically for the Switch! For those that might not be familiar with this franchise:

Dr. Fetus is being a jerk again (as he does), but this time he’s kidnapped Meat Boy and Bandage Girl’s adorable little baby girl, named Nugget! Meat Boy and Bandage Girl will be put through the grinder (THAT ISN’T A MEAT JOKE SHUT UP) as they jump, slide, punch and kick through 6 chapters containing randomly constructed levels that increase in difficulty each time you rank them up. Beat a level, it ranks, next time you play it you get a harder version of that level until you eventually master it! There are bosses, secrets, dying, awesome music, beautiful art, and dying! Also if that isn’t enough, there is a Dark World with extremely hard levels for those of you that like that sort of thing.


  • Jump, Slide, Punch and Kick through 6 chapters filled with randomly constructed levels. Beat a level, it ranks up, next time you play it you get a harder version of that level.
  • Tons of replayable levels! Bosses! Secrets! Punch and Kick stuff! and OTHER SURPRISES we aren’t talking about just yet!
  • Difficult platforming with great controls that are accessible to anyone but still require skill and practice to truly master the game.

Are you excited to see the port finally make its way over to the Nintendo Switch? What other games would you want to see make it over to the latest platform from Nintendo?
