PRESS RELEASE

Gaijin Games announces indie-tastic DLC for Runner2

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - July 8, 2013 – The world of BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien has just grown a little bigger. Gaijin Games has announced the Good Friends Character Pack, a soon-to-launch piece of DLC that introduces several well-known and well-loved video game characters to the shenanigans of Runner2.

The Good Friends Character Pack will feature seven new characters in total, and we’ll be revealing them a few at a time this Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Wait, you’re telling me today is Monday? Well I should probably get with the revealing!

Here are two of the characters that will be included with the DLC, introduced via awesome animation and the dulcet tones of the wonderful Charles Martinet:

How far has your jaw dropped? If it’s touching the ground, you may want to lift it up a bit. Lord knows what kind of vermin are crawling around down there.

In any case, we’ll be revealing two more characters tomorrow, as well as three on Wednesday. Then, this Thursday, the DLC will launch on Steam! And worry not, console owners – a release for Wii U, PS3 and 360 will follow. Rad!

    Cave Story is still one of my favourite games, and the inclusion of Quote has definitely sold me on the DLC. Can’t wait!
