An Ultra edition of Indie game Super Meat Boy will be landing on shelves in UK and other countries soon.

Lace Mamba Global will be bringing the Ultra edition to UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, France, Italy, Spain, Scandinavia, and the Benelux countries in Q3 2011.

“Super Meat Boy is an absolute crazy phenomenon on the internet," said Jason Codd, Managing Director of Lace Mamba Global.

"The game has sold far more than 400,000 copies already online, and there is a special boxed edition available in the US, so we expect there to be a huge demand for a similar retail edition in the territories we’re serving," he added.

There is no information as yet on the content and pricing of the boxed version of Super Meat Boy.

In Super Meat Boy, people play a boy without skin. His girlfriend, who is made of bandages, gets kidnapped by a fetus in a tuxedo wearing a top hat and a monocle.

The game features over 300 levels of traps that Meat Boy must avoid to rescue his bandaged girlfriend.

The game was initially released on Xbox Live Arcade, followed by a PC download version.
