Over the holiday, Team Meat has given a release date to the Switch port of Super Meat Boy, now releasing in just over two weeks on January 11.
The Switch port, aside from being a portable version of Super Meat Boy which is pioneered ground from the PlayStation Vita version, includes a new exclusive mode for the system. The Race Mode splits the screen in half and lets two players play against each other to tear through Super Meat Boy (or tear their hair out along the way).
“Race Mode is something we’ve wanted to do since Meat Boy came out in 2010,” Team Meat wrote. “We figured the Switch was a good time to test it out.”
The sequel to Super Meat Boy, a runner titled Super Meat Boy Forever, is scheduled to release on Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One in 2018.
The new race mode seems interesting and I might be eager to go through Super Meat Boy once again in a portable fashion.
