Super Meat Boy Teased for Wii U

Super Meat Boy

The team behind Super Meat Boy seem to be teasing a Wii U port of the popular platforming title. Due to memory constraints, the Wii never received the game. However, developer Tommy Refenes had this to say about a possible Wii U port:

“To the fan’s we’re still excluding I’ll leave you with this: Wii haven’t forgotten about U.”
