Bit.Trip Runner sequel coming to XBLA, PSN
Leaving the 8bit art style behind, Runner 2 will feature a brand new look, taking on a more cartoony aesthetic. The devs wanted to change up the look for the sequel, crediting such inspirations as the 1930s black and white Betty Boop cartoons — from the game’s concept art, the graphics seem like they’re ripped from the world of The Grinch, which is totally fine with me. While I’m always partial to 8bit, i’m ready to see what Gaijin cooks up with the new game, which is slated to release next spring on Xbox Live and PSN.
Check out another sample image of the new artstyle below. What do you guys think? If you want to see more information, check out the game’s dev website.
