Super Meat Boy Forever comes out on the Epic Games Store this month, Team Meat has announced.

The sequel to the brutal but brilliant Super Meat Boy launches on 23rd December on Epic’s digital store. There’s no word on other platforms – Epic has timed exclusivity on this one.

Super Meat Boy has Meat Boy, his partner Bandage Girl and new characters. Meat Boy has an oversized right fist for punching, a new slide and plummet manoeuvres.

Levels are randomly generated, and each time the game is completed the option to replay it appears and generates a new game, with different levels and unique secret locations.

“Super Meat Boy was a massive success that changed my life forever and people had been clamouring for a sequel for ages,” said Team Meat co-founder and programmer Tommy Refenes.

“But I didn’t just want to deliver more of the same and call it a day. Meat Boy deserved more than that. I wanted to rebuild Meat Boy from the ground up, in a way that would offer an entirely new experience that still hits all the same kinetic, addictive notes as its predecessor. I know Super Meat Boy Forever took forever to make but we’re confident that it was worth the wait.”
