Super Meat Boy for Wii U was hinted at not so long ago, but its appearance during the recent Nintendo Direct broadcast (the European one, at least) is the first solid confirmation we've seen that the indie platformer is indeed bound for a Nintendo system.

Now, co-creator Tommy Refenes has taken to Twitter to announce that the port - which is being handled by BlitWorks - is going to be available sooner rather than later:

Meat Boy's arrival on Nintendo system marks the end of a long and rather tortuous saga. Originally intended for WiiWare, the game was cancelled and talk of a Nintendo outing was only recently revived.

Are you looking forward to playing it, or have you already sampled it on one of the other formats it has been released on? Let us know by posting a comment below.
