Sony has today revealed on their blog that Super Meat Boy will hit the PlayStation 4 and the PS Vita on October 6th 2015.
Available as a cross but title, and as a free download in PlayStation’s October PS Plus lineup, Super Meat Boy has been redeveloped for the new consoles by Team Meat.
The game’s controls and level design will remain the same as it was back in 1998, but the soundtrack will be completely different.
As they couldn’t secure the rights to the old soundtrack they have had to work on a brand new one, to do that they have teamed up with a range of artists.
Sony explains more with details on all the artists:
Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans, known the world over as Ridiculon (whose most recent work includes The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth), provided the bulk of the soundtrack. They took care of The Forest, Hell, The Rapture, and The End, as well as the intro music and title screen. They also re-scored all of the cutscenes and miscellaneous ditties. Their work is always stellar and Super Meat Boy is no exception. Ready yourselves for some devilishly gruesome guitar work, my friends.
David “Scattle” Scatliffe of Hotline Miami fame used his unique moody style to create incredible tracks for The Hospital and the Salt Factory. His mastery will leave you wondering if the shakes you’re having are from the intense levels or the creepy/industrial bliss your ears are soaking in.
Laura Shigihara of Plants vs. Zombies renown scored The Cotton Alley in her style to give Bandage Girl’s levels a gentle, feminine touch that provides a fitting counterpoint to the hardest levels in the game.
