A new update for Runbow is now available for download on Nintendo Switch, bringing the popular indie party title up to version 1.01.

To go along with the update, developer 13AM Games has provided some colorful patch notes that go into detail on the changes made to the game. View them for yourselves below.

Runbow was recently made available on Switch as a digital download. But for those who are interested in a physical version, you won’t have to wait much longer for a boxed copy. 

Headup Games announced today that Runbow is releasing physically on Switch in North America on August 14. The European launch will take place slightly earlier on August 10.

Here’s a description of the game:

With tons of competitive modes for up to Nine players online and four players locally and a massive single player adventure, run bow is the crazy, colour-based platformer you’ve been waiting for. The world of run bow changes with each swipe of the background, so you’ll have to stay on your toes as platforms and obstacles disappear – if you can’t see something, it doesn’t exist. Fast, frantic, and fun for up to Nine players, run bow is filled with tons of modes and content to keep you running back for more.

– Features the original single-player game.
– Includes Satura’s space adventure.
– The deluxe Edition comes with all 4 costumes & music packs.
– Enjoy Runbow OST volumes 1 & 2.


Runbow is out on Switch today, and Headup Games has prepared a launch trailer to celebrate. Have a look at the video below.


Following its previous appearance on Wii U and New 3DS, Runbow makes the jump to Switch on Tuesday. Take a look at some footage from the final build below.

Runbow is nearly here on Switch. Headup Games has started the pre-load option on the Switch eShop, where it costs $14.99.

Runbow won’t be releasing for Switch via the eShop on April 24 as originally planned. A delay has been announced, with the extra time needed “in order to further optimize the game’s performance.”

13AM says Runbow will only be pushed back “a matter of weeks.” We’ll share the new release date as soon as we have it.

A physical version of Runbow for Switch will still be offered on June 14.

Runbow is making its way to Switch on April 24, but a physical version will also be offered a bit later down the road. We now have the boxart above, courtesy of Amazon.

You can now pre-order Runbow Deluxe Edition on Amazon here. Amazon Canada has it here.

Ahead of its release next month, new footage has emerged showing Runbow on Switch. You’ll find a few minutes of gameplay below.


13AM Games and Headup Games have set a release date for Runbow on Switch. The game is releasing digitally on April 24 worldwide. On June 14, fans will be able to purchase a “Deluxe Edition” at retail featuring all DLC and some physical goodies.

Runbow will let players experience all multiplayer modes with up to nine players simultaneously online. On Switch, eight players are supported locally.

As we know, Runbow is heading to another console next year. 13AM Games’ Wii U classic will be on Switch towards the start of 2018.

A listing on Amazon Spain indicates that we’ll be seeing a physical version of Runbow courtesy of Merge Games. The page states that the Satura’s Space Adventure DLC, a pack of four suits, and soundtrack volumes 1 and 2 will be included.

Runbow’s physical version is listed for a March 31 release, but that’s just tentative.
