At a GDC panel in San Francisco, Team Meat showed of a special version of Super Meat Boy in a box, a so-called “Ultra Edition” of the PC retail release that’s poised to hit stores across North America.

In a nutshell, Ultra Edition is a collector’s edition that includes the standard variety of special items: an art book, a soundtrack, and so on. The catch here is that this version of the game will only cost 20 dollars when it hits later this April.
