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 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.

While it's killing me to wait to play RUNNER 2, I don't mind the wait to get the game just right. I do wonder why they think it's going to take that long to get this game ready. Could this perhaps be an attempt to launch the game alongside the Wii U? Could a deal with Nintendo be lurking?

RUNNER was one of favorites in the series and I had no idea that this was even in the works. Man, November seems like a long ways away now!

I'm with Corbs on this one. I don't mind the wait just as long as they get the game right. That is a really long wait though!

Had no idea there was going to be a Runner game on PSN. Mind Blown.

I'm glad they're taking the time to polish it and stuff it full of content instead of rushing it out to meet demand. I wouldn't have it any other way.
