Runbow running onto PlayStation 4, brief mention of Switch release (Update, Switch mention removed)

The exciting 9 player, platforming-racing game, Runbow, is coming to PlayStation 4. This version of the game includes all of the updates released for the previous versions including its 9 base characters and 19 guest characters such as Shantae, Shovel Knight, Commander Video from Runner and more. Runbow also includes several modes such as Run, Arena, and King of the Hill.

Runbow, and all its multiplayer madness, is finally coming to PlayStation 4! With tons of competitive modes for up to nine players online and four players locally and a massive Single Player Adventure, Runbow is the crazy, colour-based platformer you’ve been waiting for.

The world of Runbow changes with each swipe of the background, so you’ll have to stay on your toes as platforms and obstacles disappear – If you can’t see something, it doesn’t exist. Fast, frantic, and fun for up to nine players, Runbow is filled with tons of modes and content to keep you running back for more.

The Retail Deluxe Edition version of Runbow will also include all of the DLC and two different soundtracks. You can play locally with up to 4 people, or up to 9 online. Runbow isn’t exclusively for friends as this game also includes a single player mode as well with over 140 levels.

Runbow will be released in Q4, 2017 for the PlayStation 4. Their YouTube video description states that Runbow will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch, but there aren’t any details on the release. If you’re interested on our thoughts on Runbow, check out our review for the Wii U version.

Update: It appears that the Switch mention been removed from the YouTube description. This could mean that either the Switch information was inaccurate, or they accidentally let the cat out of the bag. Given Runbow’s history on Nintendo’s platforms in the past, I’m expecting it to be announced soon.
