Edmund McMillen has posted the first side-by-side comparison of Super Meat Boy's new WiiWare incarnation (left) and its original Flash version. He explains that the background in the WiiWare slide is a mock-up and that the final product will be "crap your pants awesome," with more depth and lighting.

The plan is to have a playable demo ready by June 1 for E3. That's a good sign that the game will be ready for a release "by the end of the year." Although we have all the faith in the world in Meat Boy's success on Wii, we've learned that Q4 is not kind to downloadable titles. Hopefully, the adorable Meat Boy will release in late summer.
