Commander Video’s latest adventure, Runner3, has finished development, and the game has been submitted to Nintendo for final approval.
Developer Choice Provisions has announced the third game in the Bit.Trip.Runner series is complete, and once Nintendo finishes testing the game, to ensure it is ready for release, the game will go to the manufacturer to begin printing physical versions. Digitally, the game will be available day and date on Switch and Steam.
Although the developer is “eager to share” a release date, since the game has now been submitted for testing, “the ball is currently in [Nintendo’s] court.” Once Nintendo finishes testing the game, Choice Provisions will finalize and announce a release date.
Bit Trip Runner 3 was confirmed for Switch during the February 2017 Nintendo Direct, alongside 16 other games.
