Super Meat Boy cleans up on Switch with excellent sales

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at or catch him on Twitter, here.

More than meating expectations.

Released this week, Super Meat Boy’s sales on Switch are good, ‘shockingly’ so.

The first week sales on Switch have almost met its debut on Xbox 360 back in 2010, the Team Meat Twitter account has revealed.

‘That’s nuts’ indeed, as the seven year old platformer continues to prove a popular option in each installment. The Switch’s portable mode makes the perfect fit for Meat Boy’s rapid, repeatable gameplay, letting you have a few quick cracks at a tricky level whenever you find the time. Such a strong performance is brilliant news for Team Meat and fans of indie titles on Nintendo’s latest.

Team Meat have also announced the release of a physical Switch release, which should help those struggling with the console’s limited download space.

Super Meat Boy Forever, in development since 2017, will also be making its way to Switch (along with PS4, Xbox One and PC). The sequel promises to double the original’s bosses, bringing a new story with six chapters to complete.
