Get your mop and bucket at the ready, a certain easily destructible glob of meat is heading to a Playstation near you.

Co-creator Tommy Refenes announced the news today on the Playstation.com blog.

Refenes gave some background to his and Edmund McMillen's punishingly tricky platformer and wrote about hating leaving Playstation fans without the game, due to "very complicated reasons."

But something changed with those, presumably legal, reasons.

"Earlier this year, Team Meat got an unexpected gift. The gods smiled upon them and opened up a teeny tiny sliver of a path that could eventually lead them to re-release Super Meat Boy. Even though the path would be difficult they knew they owed it to their fans to at least try." Wrote Refenes.

The result is an expected release of Super Meat Boy for PS4 and PS Vita later this year.

The game will be free on Playstation Plus at launch.

The announcement came complete with meat tossing video.
