Following on from the Usain Bolt update, Imangi Studios has now pushed out some new, more festive goodies for Temple Run 2 fans to get their hands on. Available now via the App Store, Santa hats for your characters, a water slide and even the opportunity to play as jolly old St Nick himself are included.

Santa can be unlocked as a playable character using gems, so you might need to stock up first, while the Santa hats can be unlocked by finding all the Christmas artefacts out there on your runs. We're also treated to some 'mysterious masks' and a bunch more objectives to keep the game alive throughout the holiday season.

Temple Run 2 is still one of the most popular mobile games around, and so it's great to see it getting into the festive spirit. Is this just the injection you needed to keep you playing even longer?
