Everyone’s favorite runner is getting a hot, sandy update! That’s right, Despicable Me: Minion Rush is getting a beach update and you can run around where the Minions relaxed in Despicable Me 2. With summer winding down we figured it was only fair to let the Minions show off their beach bods after all the running they have been doing. We are also really pleased to announce that, since being released three months ago, Despicable Me: Minion Rush has been downloaded over 100 million times on iOS and Android devices! Wow, that’s a ton of bananas.
Players will get to watch their Minion slide down the giant toboggan slide and work on bobbing and weaving through some brand new beach obstacles. You might also spot some familiar faces from the movie lounging on the beach and floating in the water, so keep your eye’s peeled. Plus, dress your minions for the beach with four new costumes; a snorkeler, dancer, vacationer, and my personal favorite, a surfer!
Don’t worry though, if you’re not a beach bum like me or you burn easily; we’ve given some of the other areas in Minion Rush some love too! We have added new obstacle patterns in Gru’s Lab, the residential area and also in El Macho’s Lair. We also made it so players can challenge their friends directly from the Main Menu, so you’ve got no excuse to not beat your buddy’s record.
