In what’s the biggest new Tron development in years, a download-only free-runner titled Tron Run/r has been confirmed for a February 2016 release. Check out the trailer and more images!
While we’ve certainly celebrated the House of Mouse’s major IP moves of this decade (like the Disney-Marvel alliance and Star Wars’ acquisition by Disney), it’s also had a sad side-effect of pushing the company’s previous attempt to capture the male youth market aside. After the merely modest success of Tron: Legacy five years ago, Disney has since snatched up every other toy-friendly franchise under the sun, leaving the Master Control Program all but deleted. While it’s a minor development, it’s nice to see a new Tron project in the works and coming our way in weeks. Check out the trailer for Tron Run/r below!
Even though the teaser doesn’t present it, you can rest assured that you’ll be using all form of Grid transportation as you run, cycle, and fly in this free-runner (one wonders why they don’t call it Tron Cycle/r or Tron Fly/r). While it’s likely we’ve seen the last full retail Tron game release, between this downloadable effort and last year’s Disney Infinity figurine release, it’s good to know this program will still run in some form on modern game platforms. You can check out the rest of Tron Run/r’s images below!
