Runbow Launches Digitally on PlayStation 4 Next Month, Physical Version Later This Year

Today, developers 13AM Games and publishers Headup Games announced that Runbow, the critically acclaimed chaos party game, will be releasing digitally for PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch on July 3rd. A retail Deluxe Version of the game – that includes all DLCs and two stickers – is also planned, but will be launching sometime in Q3 2018. A trailer showcasing the upcoming game on both platforms has been released as well, and you can check that out above.

In Runbow, players will have to pay close attention to the background color of the levels they play on. As they race against other players, platforms and objects will appear or disappear based on the continually changing background color. With so much chaos going on, you’ll need to be constantly paying attention if you want to come out as the victor. All multiplayer modes in Runbow will feature up to 9 players simultaneously online, with 8-player local multiplayer also available for those who want to host some fun party nights.

For a brief overview of Runbow and its features, check out below:
