Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt, who has won multiple Olympic Gold medals and is considered one of the fastest men on earth, has been added to endless running game Temple Run 2 as a playable character.
Bolt is the first "guest star" in the history of the Temple Run franchise and is available today as a 99-cent in-app purchase.
Temple Run 2, developed by Imangi Studios for iOS and Android, was released in January 2013. It was downloaded more than 50 million times in its first 13 days. The sequel added new graphics and environments, more power-ups, and special powers for each character.
The Temple Run franchise was created by husband-and-wife development team Keith Shepherd and Natalia Luckyanova in Raleigh, North Carolina. The studio has since added a team of additional developers.
