GDC11: Super Meat Boy for 3DS is a Possibility - Not for WiiWare

#1 Posted by wefwefasdf (6729 posts) -



If you're not quite on top of things, you might not know that the Game Developers Conference is this week. It is the world's largest professionals-only game industry event.

Anyhow, Tommy Refenes and Edmund McMillen, the main members of Team Meat, let everyone know that they have 3DS development kits and that Super Meat Boy for the 3DS is a possibility.

Tommy and Edmund also confirmed that a Super Meat Boy will never make a WiiWare release. Ever.

I guess the good news is a little better than the bad news.

I'm not sure have such a rage inducing game on a hand-held is such a great idea. You can't just throw the controller... :P

I'd like me some 3D Super Meat Boy. 
 
No wait I'd probably get nauseous.

Nintendo really needs to make make Super Meat Boy 3DS is a reality. They'll sell so many replacement consoles when people rage-break their originals.

That would be a nice game to have on the 3DS with nothing else really at the start. Also it is just good.

Just as long as your desire for a portable Super Meat Boy doesn't lead to purchasing Super Meat Boy Handheld, which is intentionally a bad game.

Just give me the PS3 version. That's all I care about.

If I had a 3DS, I'd probably pick it up. 
 
But I'm not picking up a 3DS, so...

They confirmed that they were giving up on the wiiware release a while ago. They couldn't get the download under Nintendo's 40MB limit, and Nintendo wouldn't budge on the limit. a 3DS version sounds cool, but I'd be worried about hurling a $250 console across the room in anger.

That's never going to happen, because of exclusivity agreements with Microsoft.

You haven't lived until you've thrown a $250 device across the room. I highly recommend it.
