Bit.Trip Runner 2 trailer shows a smooth transition away from pixelation

A trailer released today for Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien focuses on the sequel's transformation from pixelation to smooth running.

Check out the trailer above to see Commander Video and a few of the unlockable characters doing what they do best — running, jumping, skidding and collecting items — in a graphically updated world.

Runner 2 will be released tomorrow, Feb. 26, for $14.99 on Steam for Windows PC and Mac. In the meantime, it's still available to pre-order on Steam for $13.49. You can also grab six Bit.Trip soundtracks with a pre-order through the Bit.Trip Lovers's Bundle.

We've reached out to developer Gaijin Games to verify the release dates for Linux, PlayStation Network, Xbox Live Arcade and Wii U's Nintendo eShop and will update this article as more information becomes available.
