Super Meat Boy, everyone's favourite cube of meat, is set to return a year after his major debut on Xbox Live Arcade and Steam. The new 'Ultra Rare Edition' of the game, available from the 26th of August, will include a host of awesome goodies for fans who want more than just the game.

For those who don't know, Super Meat Boy was a hardcore platformer praised for its difficulty, tight controls and retro style. The game followed Super Meat Boy on his quest to rescue his girlfriend, Bandage Girl, from Doctor Fetus, possibly one of the best villains ever. The game included over 300 levels filled with sawblades, spikes, rockets, hypodermic needles and....salt, all of which had to be avoided for Super Meat Boy to win back his sweetheart, awwww.

For fans much like myself, the 'Ultra Rare Edition' of Super Meat Boy is the perfect gift for fans of old school platformers and 8-bit tunes. The new edition is set to include:

  • Super Meat Boy Ultra Edition Game
  • Soundtrack
  • Sketch Book
  • Full Comic
  • Poster
  • Exclusive SMB T-Shirt

Unfortunately, the 'Ultra Rare Edition' of Super Meat Boy seems to be a UK exclusive as well as appearing to be PC only.
