Platform brawler Indie Pogo is heading to Nintendo Switch early next year, it's been confirmed. The news arrives alongside a very timely new character reveal in the shape of Super Meat Boy Forever's Meat Boy.

The game is a Smash-like arena fighter for one-to-four players which stars a number of indie favourite fighters, with characters from the likes of Enter The Gungeon, Shovel Knight, Downwell, and Bit.Trip all appearing. It has a focus on "free-flowing aerial combat" and first launched on Steam back in 2018.

The Switch version will contain all previously released content, including all DLC, and will also receive all upcoming DLC packs which are set to include Octodad, Gunvolt from the Azure Striker: Gunvolt series, Dust from Dust: An Elysian Tail, and a fighter from Awesomenauts.

Meat Boy arrives in a new content pack that will launch in January 2021; he'll be free for all players and comes with a new stage based on the Abandoned Hospital setting, where Super Meat Boy boss C.H.A.D will be making an appearance. The update will also add a single-player arcade mode, new trophies to unlock, and other quality-of-life improvements.
