Super Meat Boy joins a roster of other fighters from various retro inspired games. Shovel Knight from the game of the same name, as well as fighters from Enter The Gungeon, Downwell and Bit.Trip also make up the selection of available fighters.

Indie Pogo will also be receiving four new fighters in the future. The new brawlers include: Octodad, Gunvolt from the Azure Striker: Gunvolt series, Dust from Dust: An Elysian Tail, and a fighter from Awesomenauts. There’s no confirmed release date for each fighter as of yet.

Super Meat Boy’s appearance in Indie Pogo is not his only latest release. The Nintendo eShop saw the release of Super Meat Boy Forever earlier this week, an endless runner platformer which takes the brutal difficulty of the original and introduces some new gameplay elements.
