Bit.Trip Runner 2 coming to PS3 March 3, Vita this summer

Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend Of Rhythm Alien is coming to Playstation 3 on March 3 and to PlayStation Vita this summer, according to a post on the PlayStation Blog by Gaijin Games co-founder Mike Roush.

The PlayStation 3 version will be available at at 20 percent discount for PlayStation Plus members for its first two weeks, though the price hasn't been set yet. It will not support Cross Buy, because "Gaijin Games is self publishing the Vita version and Aksys Games is publishing the PS3 version," Roush revealed in a comment.

He ended his guest post with the Vita announcement and a bit of adoration for the handheld.

"We are proud to announce that Gaijin Games will be bringing Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend Of Rhythm Alien to PlayStation Vita," Roush wrote. "PS Vita is a platform that all of us at Gaijin Games adore, so getting Runner 2 on the device was a priority. We truly believe Vita is a perfect format to enjoy Runner 2 on; the game is simply gorgeous on that OLED screen."
