Indie studio Choice Provisions, formerly known as Gaijin Games Inc., is still undergoing development of their upcoming game Runner3. Slated to hit the Nintendo Switch eStore this Fall, we’ve already had a first glimpse at its colourful universe and crazy soundtrack with an official trailer back in March. And this video came along with the confirmation that Charles Martinet (broadly known as the voice of Mario) would reprise his role as The Narrator in this new instalment of the BIT.TRIP series.
Today, we’ve had a little update on this collaboration between the indie studio and voice actor. Choice Provisions wrote on its official blog that Martinet’s work just wrapped up this week. And we save the best for the end, here’s a preview of Martinet’s voice in Runner3!
Runner 3 will release on Nintendo Switch this Fall.
As you may already know, Charles Martinet very graciously agreed to return for his role of The Narrator. What you don’t know, however, is that he has quite a few more lines this time around! Like, way more!
The story of Runner3 is going to be a little more substantial than what you’ve seen in the previous Runner games. We won’t let it obstruct the gameplay, certainly, but if you’re the kind of player who’s interested in learning a little more about the wacky world of Runner3, that option will be there for you. I don’t want to tell you how to play your video game, of course, but I do highly recommend you seek out the story we’ve woven throughout the game. We’ll do a blog post soon about what that kind of pursuit would look like.
