Top Xbox boss Phil Spencer has spoken out to say that an Xbox One version of 2010's uber-challenging platformer Super Meat Boy "would be great." Of course, this is not a confirmation that the game is coming to Microsoft's new console, but it's an interesting development all the same.
Super Meat Boy is "one of my favorites," Spencer said on Twitter when linking off to a news story about the Super Meat Boy easter egg in Ori and the Blind Forest. A fan replied to Spencer: "Perhaps you will get SMB on Xbox One?" He included Xbox indie boss Chris Charla (@iocat on Twitter) in the tweet.
Here's Spencer's response:
@Steverulez Yea @iocat I need another game to rack up another 1000 deaths. SMB on Xbox One would be great.
Charla never replied to Spencer's tweet about an Xbox One edition of Super Meat Boy.
Created by developers Edmund McMillen and Tommy Refenes, Super Meat Boy was originally released on Xbox 360 in October 2010. The game has since been released for PC and Mac. The development of Super Meat Boy was a central storyline in 2010's documentary, Indie Game: The Movie.
