Runner 2 Delayed Until November
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
It's a bit of a trip up
Sony gamers have enjoyed some spectacular and exclusive download titles, though the BIT.TRIP series from Gaijin Games is perhaps one group of Wii exclusives that will have attracted envious glances. Thankfully, the developer's latest title, Runner 2 - Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, is confirmed for the PlayStation Network, so it's happy faces all around.
Unfortunately, it's been confirmed that the initial 'early 2012' release won't happen, with the title now likely to arrive in November. Speaking to Eurogamer.net Gaijin Games artist Mike Roush has promised that the delay is to ensure that the game is as good as it can be.
The original Bit.Trip series developed a game every three months. We really want to make Runner 2 the product it has to be. So we're going to be spending time playtesting it, making it just right.
Judging by this video of an early build, the wait may be worth it.
