Runner2 DLC is en route!!

Hey everyone! Ever since the launch of Runner2, people have been asking us if we planned on releasing any sort of DLC for it. Being the mischievous lot we are, we typically alluded that such a thing might happen and left it at that. Well, today, we're prepared to announce the impending release of the Good Friends Character Pack! It will introduce seven new characters to the world of Runner2, and we'll be revealing them a few at a time until the DLC hits Steam on... Thursday! And don't worry, console folks - a release for 360, PS3 and Wii U will follow!

Rather than just list out the characters and provide you with a screenshot, we thought it would be fun to put together some neat animations, and have the one and only Charles Martinet narrate the tales behind how these characters ended up in the world of Runner2. Without further ado, here are the two characters we're revealing today:

$3 says your mind is blown! Check back tomorrow for two more character reveals!

In any case, we thought it would be fun to challenge the Miiverse community with drawing CommanderVideo celebrating whatever holiday they choose! Every response we received was awesome, but because it would be a massive undertaking to upload all of them here, we had to select only ten. Here they are!:

Pretty rad, huh?! Tune in next week for another CHALLENGE DRAW!

For this week's Miiverse Challenge Draw, we tasked the Miiverse community with drawing CommanderVideo in a different video game! We were really excited to see what everyone would come up with, and we definitely weren't let down.

In fact, because we received so many amazing entries, we've decided to just go ahead and share a bunch of them and not pick a winner. That's right, everyone - we just changed the rules. We can do that.

Here, in no particular order, are some of the awesome entries we received:
