eShop releases for the Wii U have been kind of skimpy lately aside from a few recent demo games, but Gaijin Games is changing that today with the release of Runner 2. Runner 2 is the sequel to Bit.Trip Runner, the highly successful platformer that was originally available as WiiWare.

If you’re keen on picking it up you can head on over to the Wii U eShop and download it now for $14.99. If you’re a fan of the Bit.Trip games, you’ll definitely want to pick this one up. If you’re unfamiliar with the gameplay, check out this Indie Impressions video to give you some idea of what the game will play like. If you’re getting it, let us know in the comments!

  • YAy! Im getting it right now!!!!!!! 🙂

  • Zelly Jeffers

    Turning my Wii U on riiiiiiight now…

  • Johny

    what a bout europe ? :/

    • Petri

      We get them games on 2 days to 2 month delay.

      •  You got Zen Pinball 2 faster than the US.  We are still waiting.

      • Alienfish

        It’s never fair, but to be fair, Europe has seen quite a few of the best games on Nintendo consoles before NA over the past few years.

  • I don’t like this series of games. Not something I’d be willing to spend $14.99 on. Maybe $4.99 at best.

  • Just bought this awesome game and ready to play it

  • Megan Allen

    noooo i have 13 dollars XD

  • Good game

  • Jess Purdy

    15 bucks seems a little steep for an endless runner– maybe I’ve just played too many on iOS.

    • Lord Fuse

       It isn’t an endless runner, not at all! I would suggest looking into the original Bit.Trip Runner, or at least videos of it. (Albeit it’s a lot more difficult, and frustrating)

    • Alienfish

      You don’t generally see this kind of care go into a video game on iOS or Android. Any gamer who loves music, Mario, and a good challenge should pick this up without hesitation.

      Trust me, you’ll spend more than fifteen bucks on your app store before you come across anything this good. Just go ask the Miiverse, it knows all and tells all.

  • Could have been worse 60 bucks so this works for me

  • Srpg2ishere


  • woah! looks way better in HD.

  • Can someone tell me why the game is in the demo section, but theirs no demo?
