No publisher found for Super Meat Boy Wii, retail version canceled

Thursday, 3rd March 2011 00:40 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Team Meat has announced that its given up on the long awaited Wii release of Super Meat Boy.

In a GDC-centric post on the Team Meat blog, co-founder Edmund McMillen confirmed a packaged Wii release is no longer on the cards.

“We really tried hard to make this happen but not one publisher we talked to thought a retail budget title for the Wii would be profitable at this point in the Wiis life cycle,” he wrote.

“And we totally understand that.”

Thanks, Joystiq.

    For shame. But, like they said, kind of understandable – it’s not the sort of game that would sell at retail. Why Nintendo couldn’t have let them have a bit more space so that they could complete the game on WiiWare, I have no idea.

    Team Meat have had a hard time of things with SMB it seems, at least on the console front. Guess they’ll be sticking to PC from here on it, which is kind of a shame. Microsoft should’ve treated them better, the swines.

    I am definitely getting the limited PC release.

    I’m not usually one of those nerds who buy the same game twice, but 20 dollars for the game and a fuckload of awesome extra material? So, so worth it.
