Runner3: Retro Levels detailed and showcased

Yesterday, Choice Provisions posted the latest devblog post for Runner3, and this one is pretty good: we finally get a good look at the infamous Retro Levels! As explained previously, those are literally a game within a game, and it wasn’t an exaggeration!

They are found in no less than 3 different worlds, with 9 levels per world… that makes a total of 27 Retro Levels, not to mention some “wacky” boss battles! The levels are said to be short, but pretty intense: those will not be a walk in the park, and will provide with some pretty welcome challenge.

But that’s not all: in every level, there’s 5 new collectibles to gather, called the Gildans. We don’t quite know what they do yet, but there’s no doubt it will be totally worth it to collect them all. Once you have found as many as you can, you have to jump into a pretty intriguing mystery hole, but who knows what they lead to!

In those levels, CommanderVideo will get to run, jump, dash, and even stay idle for a few seconds. But for some reason, lingering too long in those Retro Levels is not recommended! One thing’s for sure: they provide a nice change of pace from the regular levels, making Runner3 and more fun and varied experience.

Runner3 (Switch – eShop) comes out this Fall in Europe and North America.
