Runner 2 DLC brings back old friends from indie hits

Gaijin Games has announced new character-based DLC for its platformer Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

This week the Santa Cruz, CA. company will be revealing seven individuals featured in the "Good Friends Character Pack," based on cross-over indie games. So far we've seen Quote, best known as the protagonist in Studio Pixel's Cave Story, and Raz from Double Fine's Psychonauts.

Accompanying promo videos are voiced by renowned voice actor, Charles Martinet, who provided Mario as well as other Nintendo characters and has previously worked with Gaijin Games. Last week, Gaijin released a free-to-play endless runner browser game based on Runner 2.
