Super Meat Boy teased for Wii U

Several years ago, Super Meat Boy was planned for Wii via the WiiWare service. That didn’t pan out unfortunately, and Nintendo fans have not had access to the game since its launch in 2010. Five years later though, that might be changing.

There’s a very interesting message included at the end of an official Super Meat Boy blog post from designer Tommy Refenes. It reads: “To the fan’s we’re still excluding I’ll leave you with this: Wii haven’t forgotten about U.”

Hmm… that definitely sounds like a strong hint at a Wii U eShop release for Super Meat Boy! It’d be pretty great if a Nintendo version happens after all these days.
