The next TRON film sequel might’ve hit the skids, but that doesn’t mean we can’t head back to The Grid for one last adventure.
Disney Games has formally announced the new video game TRON RUN/r, which is basically the TRON version of the popular “runner” genre (i.e. Temple Run, Subway Surfers, etc.). Sure, it’s not the massive adventure we might’ve wanted (especially in the wake of the film’s trip to development hell), but it’s still a positively stunning feat of TRON-style graphical beauty. It may not be the TRON we wanted, but it's the TRON we got.
The game borrows the look that made TRON: Legacy so gorgeous, building on the distinct visuals of the original film. If you’re looking for another touchstone, the game looks a lot like the short-lived CGI animated series TRON: Uprising (which was surprisingly great, by the way) brought to life. Just, you know, faster.
Disney has dropped some fresh trailers showing the gameplay in action, ahead of the formal release on Feb. 16, when the game will arrive on Steam, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
