You Can Now Play Usain Frickin’ Bolt, The Fastest Human Alive, In ‘Temple Run 2’



Who better to star in the world’s most famous endless runner than the world’s fastest runner? That’s Imangi Studios’ latest stroke of genius: they’re now offering Olympic world record runner Usain Bolt, that stroke of greased lightning himself, as a playable character in Temple Run 2.

For a limited time only, Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is available as an in-app purchase of $0.99 in Temple Run 2.

Like many characters in Temple Run 2, Usain has a special ability you can activate, which gives you invincibility, automatically guides you on the right path, and sucks coins in a vortex towards you. Also, bolts shoot off of you, because you know, Bolt.

Imangi Studios has made an entire App Store empire out of re-skinning and re-protagonist-izing Temple Run for whatever property du jour that might call for an endless runner, like Brave or The Wizard of Oz. I’d say Mr. Bolt makes a little bit more sense endlessly running away from a skullbear, though, wouldn’t you?
