Runner 2 Gets a Few Good Friends

By Rebecca Smith, 3 years ago
The last that we heard from Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, the game was due to get DLC in the form of the "Good Friends Character Pack". Originally billed as having seven characters, it later turned out that the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of the game would only be receiving six characters (the seventh was a Steam exclusive). We even got a trailer showcasing the familiar faces that would be joining CommanderVideo along his journey. Today, after a month of silence, the DLC makes an extremely late surprise arrival onto the Marketplace. There are no additional achievements.

The Good Friends Character Pack is virtual proof that friendship is the most beautiful thing in the world. Featuring the likes of Josef (Machinarium), Spelunky Guy (Spelunky), Razputin (Psychonauts), Dr. Fetus (Super Meat Boy), Quote (Cave Story), and Invisible CommanderVideo (duh), it’s perhaps the first-ever piece of DLC that’s capable of ending every war in the world and inspiring people everywhere to hold hands and whistle some sweet tuneage.
If you would like a sneak peek at the DLC before deciding on a purchase, check out the screenshots below:
