BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien was released onto the North American Wii U eShop last week, representing the series' leap into the HD era of gaming.

The release hasn't gone as smoothly as Gaijin Games would have hoped though, as many who downloaded it have been experiencing freezing issues that occur when leaving the game.

Fortunately the developer has picked up on the problem and has swiftly produced a patch to fix it, taking to Twitter to declare the good news:

Hopefully Nintendo will approve it fairly quickly so players can get their consoles thawed out.
