For those of you that never played Super Meat Boy, you’re in for a real treat. You’re about to play a game with the best controls and level design this side of 1988. For those of you that have already had the joy (pain?) of experiencing Meat Boy, you’ll notice that the soundtrack is different.

Long story short, we couldn’t secure the rights to include the old soundtrack with the release of the game on PS4 and PS Vita. Now don’t be too bummed, because we had the opportunity to work with our favourite artists to re-score Super Meat Boy to celebrate its 5th anniversary. Our dream team of artists consists of:

  • Matthias Bossi and Jon Evans, known the world over as Ridiculon (whose most recent work includes

    ), 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

    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

    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.

That’s a pretty slick roster of artists. We were lucky enough that they were all friends of ours and fans of Super Meat Boy. Their passion and love for the game can be heard in the work they put into making the game sound amazing. We’re honoured to have them on the team for this version of Super Meat Boy.

Their marvellous soundtrack coupled with Jordan Fehr’s gross and satisfying SFX create an auditory masterpiece that complements Super Meat Boy like butter to lobster. But, talk is talk — your ears need to judge. We don’t want you to hear the whole soundtrack just yet; that special date is reserved for 6th October, but we’ll give a little taste of what’s to come. Below, you’ll find a link to the Hell Boss track. When you listen to it, you can hear that it burns with a seething intensity that is Hell in Super Meat Boy:

We’re excited for old fans, forgotten fans, and fans that don’t yet know that Super Meat Boy is their all-time favourite game to join us on 6th October on PS4 and PS Vita to celebrate Super Meat Boy’s 5th birthday in style!

P.S. The DualShock 4 glows red while you play Super Meat Boy. If you were on the fence before and this tidbit didn’t sway you, then I don’t know what I can do for you.
