Super Meat Boy in Smash Bros?

Interviewed by Eurogamer, Team Meat expressed interest in seeing their meaty hero star in the next Smash Bros. game for the Wii U. (Super Meat Boy, Super Smash Bros., Wii U)

Wouldn't Super Meat Boy need to be on Wii U or 3DS before that will happen though?

I'm confused too, I thought a game character had to be on a Nintendo platform before they could even be considered.

Maybe they're porting the game to the Wii U/3DS eShop?

the game
was at one time in the process of being published for release on the wii by nintendo but it was canceled.

They could still have some type of contractual connection to the character.

Of course an indie dev would like to see that, but the game isn't even on the WiiU/3DS. And they certainly haven't done anything for Nintendo to deserve it. If any character did it would be Travis from No More Heroes, in which SUDA expressed he would love to see him on a smash title. It's a shame he won't, even after having the game be exclusive to the console for some time until Konami ported it to the ps360.

Well, Suda is friends with Sakurai. That is how Snake got in.

I would love to see him too, Plus he is the most prominent 3rd party new IP wii game.

Meat Boy isn't worthy.....he's cool and the game is good but there are probably 20 more deserving characters.
Derekvinyard13  +   943d ago
This would be cool, he's a cool character

i dont want this character in smash bros but that is just me other people have other opinion
Quadraxis  +   944d ago
Ridiculous, Commander Video would be in Smash Bros. before Meat Boy.

Rather see Wreck It Ralf.

...Honestly, out of all the "outsider" suggestions I've seen people suggest, that one makes the most sense. Good on you.
Jadedz  +   944d ago
oh my goodness
You can only imagine all the, ''spanked by meat'' references.
RmanX1000  +   944d ago
Lets add Bayonetta and MegaMan and Travis Touchdown and Simon Belmont and Heihachi and Gex and Leon Kennedy and Bomberman and Phoenix Wright and Rayman and Geno and EarthWorm Jim... Lets add every 3rd Party Character to SSB4.

Your wrong.
Platinum Games Director Kamiya stated
he want Bayonetta and The Wonderful 101 Hero in the game.

Hideki Kamiya who is also a friend of Sakurai and follow each others on Twitter.

Sakurai also was spotted at Platinum Games studio.

Sakurai has stated early before Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS Development started that he want to add a Capcom Character.
Either Megaman any version, Ryu, Phoenix Wright, Amaterasu or Resident Evil Character such as Chris or Jill can get it.

Rayman has a shot because of Ubisoft strong Wii U support.

Geno - Doesn't since Square Enix may not lends a hand.

Earthworm Jim not.

The truly only third parties to be in are:
Solid Snake
Lloyd Irving
The Wonderful 101 - Most Second Party since it is new for Platinum Games but Nintendo is funding it and publishing it.
LastXeno  +   944d ago
Best of luck to team meat, Sakurai seems strict on what third party gets into his game.

So, the guys at Team Meat want Nintendo to include in Smash Bros a character from a game that was originally promised as a Nintendo Wii exclusive, then had its development moved from "exclusive" to "also on Xbox 360 and PC", then got released on Xbox 360 and PC, with the Wii version cancelled? And a game that, so far, hasn't been released on any other Nintendo platform, be that 3DS or Wii U?

Are they serious? The chances of such a character being part of the Smash Bros roster, in the current state of things, range from "when Hell freezes" to "HELL TO THE NO!"

And before anyone label me as an hater: no, I fucking LOVE Super Meat Boy. I played it on Newsgrounds, and followed its development ever since it was initially announced as a WiiWare game, and bought it for Xbox 360 on release (actually, Super Meat Boy was one of my main reasons for buying the 360, believe it or not). And Super Meat Boy is, to date, my absolute favorite downloadable game, along with Runner 2 and Trine 3.

But come on, let's be realistic here, ok?
Dancinsolo  +   944d ago
Trine 3? When did #3 come out?
deafdani  +   943d ago
Sorry, I meant Trine 2. :P
lizard81288  +   944d ago
Well, I guess he is a secret character in the Bit.Trip games and those are on the 3ds and Wiiu...
deafdani  +   942d ago
...and Wii, too, but that's not enough. Not at all. :P
AztecFalcon  +   944d ago
I don't really care if there are reasons why Super Meat Boy shouldn't be in SSB4. As long as he isn't taking someone else's spot and is just another extra character, the more the merrier.
Team Meat is garbage. I'd rather not have characters from their mediocre games put in Smash Bros.
deafdani  +   942d ago
I've only played 2 of their games - Meat Boy and Super Meat Boy. And both are excellent (Meat Boy is excellent considering it's just a Newsgrounds game).

And Super Meat Boy is almost perfect in all regards. Nothing "mediocre" in it.

Is Binding of Isaac a terrible game, or what?
