Runner2 out this week on Steam, XBLA and Wii U

Next week on PSN. iOS and Vita versions due this summer.

Bit.Trip series creator Gaijin Games is releasing its sequel to its retro auto-running sidescroller Bit.Trip Runner this week with the splendidly titled Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

As tweeted by Gaijin Games, Runner2 is out today on Steam for PC and Mac as well as on the Wii U eShop in the US, so probably Thursday in Europe. Tomorrow it will arrive on XBLA, and it's due on PSN 5th March in the US, so likely the following day in Europe.

We've contacted Gaijin Games about confirming the European release dates and will update as we hear back.

Vita and iOS ports are due this summer.

For now, enjoy this colourful Runner2 launch trailer.
