There's a new BIT.TRIP game in town, ready to continue the beat-filled saga. It's hardly surprising that Gaijin Games has decided to give Runner a sequel, given that the original was quite clearly the most fun of the first six.

Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien expands on the original, with players tapping specific directions and buttons to jump, dodge and duck with the beat. There's currently a dev blog available which divulges a few bits and pieces, such as the fact that there will be abilities that are not necessary to use at all, but can be used by advanced players to further their scores.

Got beat? Visit the dev blog and check it out for yourself.
