Runbow Deluxe Coming to Wii U and New 3DS


Runbow is one of many indie games that’s graced Nintendo’s Wii-U with tight platforming gameplay, colorful art design inspired by 1960s animation and it own blend of charm. With hundreds of stages, Runbow is a fast-paced action game featuring multiple gameplay modes and a unique mechanic where platforms and obstacles in the environment appear and disappear in tune with shifts in the world’s color palette. Now, Runbow Deluxe and a handheld version are expected to arrive this fall.

Nighthawk Interactive has revealed it will bring independent developer 13AM Games’ party platformer Runbow Deluxe to the Wii-U and Runbow Pocket Deluxe to the New 3DS later this year. An updated release of the original Runbow, these new versions include all of the DLC launched for the game since it debuted last year, including a new story adventure, levels, costumes, characters and more.

Runbow Deluxe supports competitive multiplayer for up to nine players both locally and online and comes with a bonus download for the game’s two-volume original soundtrack.

Runbow Pocket Deluxe has a StreetPass functionality for exchanging information, like favorite character and best Bowhemoth run time. It also comes with an exclusive theme download for New Nintendo 3DS.

This free content also means the inclusion of various guest characters from other indie platformers. In addition to Juan from Guacamelee, the blue burrower Shovel Knight, CommanderVideo and CommandgirlVideo from Bit Trip Runner, Hyper Light Drifter’s Drifter, Max from Mutant Mudds Super Challenge and Gunvolt from Azure Striker Gunvolt, the Deluxe version of Runbow will also introduce Shantae from Shantae Half-Genie Hero to 13AM Games’ platformer.
