Like its forefather before it, Runner3 will take a detour and slide onto store shelves when it releases in Q1 2018. Bit.Trip Presents Runner2 also saw a physical release, as did compilation sets of earlier Bit.Trip games.
Choice Provisions, formerly known as Gaijin Games, has partnered up with Nicalis – of Cave Story and The Binding of Isaac ports fame – to release this physical edition for $39.99. Charles Martinet will reprise his role as CommanderVideo,
“Some games just belong on physical cartridges, and this is clearly one of the most deserving. We can’t wait for people to get their hands on Runner3—literally.” – Tyrone Rodriguez, President of Nicalis
Runner3 includes some surprising new features, like branching paths, item shops and vehicles that CommanderVideo can take for a ride. The game also features new playable characters, new gameplay modes, new moves and an assortment of Hero Quests and retro challenges.
“We know everyone’s going to love Runner3, but I’ll bet you’re going to love it even more in tiny little cartridge form.” – Alex Neuse, co-founder of Choice Provisions
“Just try not to lick it—play it!” adds Mike Roush, co-founder of Choice Provisions.
