Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien will be heading to Wii U at the end of this month. The game was just submitted to Nintendo for Wii U eShop approval so no specific date has been set, but the game’s Steam page lists a release date as February 26. The developers have posted a dev blog on their site detailing the final stages of the submission process, including bug hunting and fixing a last minute problem on the Wii U.

Other problems the team faced included having to repackage the whole game for XBLA and dropping a small leaderboards feature for the PS3. It’s a good read for anyone interested in what goes on behind the scenes in game development, so be sure and check it out here. In the mean time, if you played any of Gaijin Games’ WiiWare Bit.Trip titles, let us know how you enjoyed them in the comments!

      ¬†yeah, i don’t think so… they were perfect the way they were. not everything has to be in HD… the games were done with pixel art on purpose, that was not a mistake…

    Love the first one, so I’m looking forward to this one!

  • Lord Fuse

    The entire Bit.Trip series is great, I can’t wait for this one!

    It looks interesting. I think I’ll eventually have a lot of side-scrolling games for the Wii U!
