Runbow, coming to Wii U later this year, is a nine person game that’s part platformer and part racer. Developed by 13AM Games, it was announced today that the roster of characters available to choose from is getting a few familiar faces when it arrives on the eShop later this year.

The title character from Shovel Knight, Juan and Tostada from Guacamelee!, and Rusty from Steamworld Dig are just a few of the characters the developer revealed to be included the game via a new trailer from Gamespot. The full list of characters is seen below.

Shovel Knight — Shovel Knight

Juan and Tostada — Guacamelee!

CommanderVideo and CommandGirlVideo — BIT.TRIP Presents…Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien

Swift Thornebrooke — Sportsball

Scram Kitty — Scram Kitty and His Buddy On Rails

Rusty — Steamworld Dig: A Fistful of Dirt

Despite these additional characters, no special stats or powers will accompany their arrival according to the developer.

“Adding these characters came from a desire to celebrate games we love and fellow eShop developers who have been supportive of Runbow,” a 13AM Games representative said.

    I’m excited to play this. I hope they give me some heads up as to the release though as I’m running low on eShop credit.
