On Wednesday, the latest official blog post for Runner3 went live, and this one has some pretty juicy content! Indeed, it reveals that the game will feature various cameos from other independent developers!
The best part? All the cameo characters can be unlocked for free, simply by completing Hero Quests. In fact, there will not even be any in-game purchases at all: the only thing you will have to pay for is the game itself.
Here’s the three cameos revealed in the blog post:
Shovel Knight (from Shovel Knight)
The blue burrower himself. It was our hope from the get-go to include Shovel Knight in the game, and we’re beyond excited to have him join the Runner-verse!
Ever on the side of good, he joins forces with the Commanders to help take down the nefarious Timbletot. Do they succeed in their mission? Probably. I mean, it would be weird if they didn’t, right?
Eddie Riggs (from Brütal Legend)
From a Legend most Brutal. He may be best known for his roadie skills, but Eddie Riggs has also proven himself to be quite the accomplished runner. He’s the perfect compatriot for the Commanders, what with their shared love of vanquishing evil. Kindred spirits, all the way down the line.
Charles Martinet The Narrator (Runner series)
The man. The myth. The Narrator. When he’s not hocking strange wares and dictating the story of the Runner series, he’s running alongside the Commanders and all of their creepy friends. He’s a normal enough gent, to be sure, but we can’t shake the feeling there’s something…peculiar about him. Let us know if you notice anything, okay?
Here’s some pictures for the cameos in Runner3:
Runner3 (Switch) comes out on May 22nd in Europe and North America.
