The developer of Runner 3, Choice Provisions, recently revealed that the narrator of the game, Charles Martinet, will be a playable character fittingly called THE NARRATOR. Some of you may be aware that Mr. Martinet is the voice actor of a little known character named Mario! For those of us who have become well-acquainted with hearing his voice gracing our video gaming experiences over nearly the last 30 years when he first became the voice of Mario in Mario Teaches Typing in 1992, it will be a surreal experience to actually play as the man himself in a video game!
“No longer content to watch from the sidelines, The Narrator has decided to take matters into his own hands– er, feet!” – Choice Provisions
Runner 3 is, as the name suggests, an endless runner game with quirky, stylish visuals and an emphasis on incorporating musical beats and rhythms into the platforming as you gather collectibles which create the sounds to complement the music.
“The Timbletot is determined to rid the multiverse of all its love and happiness. CommanderVideo, a lover if ever there were one, refuses to let this happen. He’s ready to jump, double-jump, wall-jump, slide-jump, slide, kick, float, drive, fly, and dance his way to victory, all across a medley of thrilling, challenging, and joyous levels!”
Featuring branching paths which represent increased difficulty levels, vehicles to navigate stages and retro-style challenge versions of all the levels in the game, there is sure to be plenty of content to flesh out your time spent with this $25 game when it launches on May 22nd.
