Bit.Trip Runner sequel revealed

Gaijin Games has revealed its latest project, Runner 2: Future Legend Of Rhythm Alien. Headed for XBLA and PSN, Runner 2 is the first sequel to emerge from the Bit Trip series and introduces HD visuals, new abilities for main character Commander Video and more playable characters. The biggest departure for the previously Wii- and 3DS-only rhythm-action platformer, however, is the new art style which abandons the series' 8-bit aesthetic for a more cartoony look hinted at on the game's blog.
