'Runbow' (AL) Delayed On PS4, Switch For More Polishing

by Rainier on April 23, 2018 @ 2:01 p.m. PDT

Runbow is a fast paced, action party game with a never before seen color mechanic.

Runbow features an eye-catching color mechanic that has racers brawl amongst each other while objects and platforms appear or disappear based on the continually changing background color.

Up-to nine players race against each other as platforms and obstacles appear and disappear when the background changes vibrant colors. Players can sprint against each other in Run, or go head-to-head in one of Runbow’s six additional modes, including Arena, King of the Hill, ColourMaster and The Bowhemoth.

Runbow will be postponed for some weeks in order to further optimize the game’s performance.

Headup Games and 13AM Games deeply apologize to everyone who's already looking forward excitedly to play it, but in order to feature the highest quality possible, Runbow needed to be delayed for PlayStation Store and Nintendo eShop. But rest assured - it's just a matter of weeks. You will get the newest date, as soon as it is set.

The same may apply to the retail "Deluxe Edition", due to the digital shift this date will probably shift back a bit as well. The Deluxe Edition will include all DLCs and nice physical goodies.

Runbow features an eye-catching color mechanic that has racers brawl amongst each other while objects and platforms appear or disappear based on the continually changing background color. All multiplayer modes can be played by up to 9 players simultaneously online, while it features 8-player local multiplayer madness on Nintendo Switch as well as 4 player local chaos on PlayStation 4. Besides that, the game features a bevy of content in its single-player modes that will test the skills and minds of any seasoned platformer.

Players can sprint against each other in classic “Run” mode, battle to the death in “Arena,” or try a colorful take on the multiplayer classic “King of the Hill.” In addition to these, the game features more than 140 levels in “Adventure,” and “Bowhemoth,” a single, uninterrupted platforming challenge that will test even the best platform gamers.

Key Features:

  • Go head to head with your friends, locally or online, in Run, Arena, or King of the Hill, for a colourful, crazy competition. Host a Private Game for you or your friends, or hop into an Open Party and take on the world!
  • Tons of costumes and Indie Guest Characters are waiting for you to unlock, including Shovel Knight, CommanderVideo, Shantae, Lilac, and many more.

  • Hundreds of pieces of unlockable Gallery content await you, from concept art to characters, and even a few hidden secrets...

With nine-player online madness or with up to four players locally, five game modes, 19 guest characters, hundreds of levels, and tons more content all in one unforgettable colorful game, you better get ready to Runbow!
