We really loved the amazingly titled BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien when it landed on the Wii U eShop back in 2013, so we're really looking forward to getting our mitts on Runner3 when it races to the Switch eShop on 22nd May.

Developed by the lovely folks over at Choice Provisions, Runner3 follows in the flamboyant footsteps of its predecessors with level after level of auto-running fun. You’ll jump, slide, kick, bounce and boogie your way past enemies and obstacles in an effort to stop the terrible, treacherous, troublemaking Timbletot!

Dauntless dashing, however, is only the beginning. As you rush past giant foodstuffs, through haunted amusement parks and across industrial landscapes, you’ll ride creatures and vehicles, explore branching paths, snag collectibles, earn new outfits and battle quirky bosses.

Charles Martinet, the voice of Mario himself, takes on duties as the narrator again - something that fills us with great joy. And there is even going to be a collectible physical edition published by Nicalis that includes the game card, a full-colour manual, a soundtrack sampler mini CD and a CommanderVideo character strap that lights up.


Let us know if you plan to pick up Runner3 when it whizzes on to Switch in May with a comment below.
