The game will also be hitting retail a bit later on June 14 as a “Deluxe Edition” including all DLCs and nice physical goodies to be announced at a later stage because… well, just to make it more interesting.

Runbow features an eye-catching color mechanic that has racers brawl amongst each other while objects and platforms appear or disappear based on the continually changing background color. All multiplayer modes can be played by up to 9 players simultaneously online, while it features 8-player local multiplayer madness on Nintendo Switch as well as 4 player local chaos on PlayStation™4. Besides that, the game features a bevy of content in its single-player modes that will test the skills and minds of any seasoned platformer.

… But wait! There’s more! 13AM Games and Dadako are bringing the delightfully retro Pirate Pop Plus to Nintendo Switch so you can decorate your virtual Pocket Game on the go! Featuring a host of chiptune music, customization options, and addictive arcade action, Pirate Pop Plus is the perfect portable popping pastime!
After initially launching on Wii U, Runbow quickly rose through the ranks to become a highly-ranked Wii U game, and garnered overwhelming praise from both media and players. In addition to frantic, humorous gameplay of its own, Runbow features 19 guest characters from some of the biggest indie titles, including Guacamelee!, Shovel Knight and Steamworld Dig.

“Runbow was a must-have on the Wii U and we think it will also become a favorite among PlayStation™ gamers,” said Alex Rushdy, Co-Founder of 13AM Games. “Thanks to Headup Games we’re able to bring Runbow’s hilarious brawling and racing action to the PlayStation™4, where players can tackle challenges on their own or against friends and others worldwide via local and online multiplayer.”

In Runbow players can sprint against each other in classic “Run” mode, battle to the death in “Arena,” or try a colorful take on the multiplayer classic “King of the Hill.” In addition to these, the game features more than 140 levels in “Adventure,” and “Bowhemoth,” a single, uninterrupted platforming challenge that will test even the best platform gamers.
