Temple Run 2 players have long since had the privilege of taking on the three-lane running challenge with champion sprinter Usain Bolt. Now, folks who select him as a character will get to enjoy his new uniform, the same one he will be wearing at the IAAF Championships in Beijing.
Imangi Studios co-Founder Keith Shepard talks about Usain’s popularity. â€œUsain Boltâ€™s character in Temple Run 2 is one of the franchiseâ€™s most popular runners. To celebrate Usainâ€™s 6th-annual World Championship appearance this August, we could think of no better way than to update his character in the game to reflect what heâ€™ll be wearing this month on the track,â€ he says. â€œWithout a doubt, Usainâ€™s character marks the epitome of speed and agility, not to mention the ultimate â€˜temple runner,â€™ and weâ€™re honored to keep working with him.â€
Usain Bolt himself mentions the confidence that can be gleaned from a uniform. â€œPerformance aside, few things make an athlete feel more confident than his jersey,â€ says Bolt. â€œItâ€™s only fitting, then, that my Temple Run 2 alter ego wear the same great jersey I get to wear this summer at the World Championships.â€
