Run, run, as fast as you can
Unless you’ve had experience of the BIT.TRIP games previously, you’d be forgiven for thinking Runner3 is a platform game; Commander Video and his pink lady friend counterpart both jump, kick and slide their way through obstacle-laden courses. So on the surface it looks that way and through a certain pick up in...
Just a few weeks to go
Choice Provisions was responsible for BIT.TRIP, one of the standout game franchises to arise from Nintendo’s original Wii Shop Channel. Favoring musically driven, arcade-like gameplay, the series jumped from genre to genre, but one of its most popular entries was BIT.TRIP RUNNER, which eventually went on to get its own...
Choice Provisions’ Runner3 is one of the most highly anticipated indie releases on the eShop, as the third instalment in the studio’s delightfully crazy rhythm platformer series. The previous two games were both known for their extremely high difficulty, but it was the special stages in those predecessors that...

It's a shame we have a little while to wait for this one, but it'll be...
"It's been smooth sailing ever since!"
Much noise has been made over the past couple months about how the Nintendo Switch is a significantly more developer friendly console than the Wii U or 3DS. It's a bit more powerful, the architecture is more PC friendly, and there's support for many widely used engines like Unreal. We already saw an example of...
"Nintendo platforms have always been CommanderVideo's home"
When Runner3 was announced as a Nintendo Switch exclusive this writer's eyebrows went up a fair amount - it's not particularly common for download games to be exclusive nowadays, much less so from studios with a track record of multiple cross-platform successes. Yet here we are - it's an...
