If you are one of the many gamers that bought Super Meat Boy on XBLA, then I have a treat for you.  A new unlockable character has been found!  There is one catch though, you have to beat the third world (Salt Factory) in order to unlock him.  Who is this new member of the team?  It’s my personal favorite character in the game, Brownie.

Brownie is the boss in the third world of Super Meat Boy.  He is a little brown piece of poo that you race to the finish as the Salt Factory is filling with salt.  He has always been my personal favorite character in the game because he shows so much heart.  I was very excited to have the chance to use him.

To unlock Brownie, you must first beat him in the final level of The Salt Factory.  After you have completed that, return to any location on the map and select a level.  At the character select screen enter this code: RB, RB, RB, B, B, B, X.  You have to enter the code fairly quick.  I tested the code a few ways and it only seemed to work after I entered the 7-button sequence quickly.  Then select any character, it doesn’t matter which one, and you will be Brownie when the level starts.  Any time you exit to the map, Brownie becomes disabled.  You will need to enter the code every time you are in the character select screen if you wish to use him.

Brownie appears to have the same powers and abilities as Super Meat Boy.  At first I thought he jumped further, but after some testing, I don‘t think that’s the case.  He appears to just be a different skin on top of the Super Meat Boy character.  Nonetheless, I love it.  It just seems cooler to use Brownie.  If you see a “?” on the leader boards, that’s Brownie.  Now we know that all those people weren’t hacking the leader boards.
