All six of Gaijin Games' downloadable Wii rhythm action games compiled for retail release this summer on Nintendo's new handheld.
Nintendo's brand-new handheld is wasting no time going retro, as Aksys Games today announced that a compilation of Gaijin Games' Bit.Trip series of chiptune-infused WiiWare games will be released on the 3DS. Titled Bit.Trip Saga, the compilation will include all six of the developer's Bit.Trip games to date--Beat, Core, Void, Runner, Fate, and Flux--all with full 3D support.
With simple graphics, challenging gameplay tied to a soundtrack of Atari 2600-like bleeps, and a faceless mascot in CommanderVideo, the Bit.Trip series of games offer stylized nods to a variety of arcade classics in their gameplay, bosses, and more.
Aksys plans to have Bit.Trip Saga on store shelves this summer. For more on the specific games included, check out GameSpot's reviews of Bit.Trip Beat, Bit.Trip Core, Bit.Trip Void, and Bit.Trip Runner.
That's awesome. I probably shouldn't complain about this since I own a 3DS but why isn't there a Wii version? Whatever, I'll probably give it a try anyway.
that's great! I've played the demos of beat and fate and they were great, and I also finished runner on my pc and it was awesome. I'm sure I'll get it once I'll get a 3DS
Considering I bought the first off Steam for ten bucks and have wanted to play the rest, 40 bucks seems fine. Hopefully, it will be price lower, maybe 35, hopefully 30 since its just rereleases
Saw all the game on youtube and 40$ is way to much for me considaring i can play load of flash game similar to that for free on the web 20$ is the max i would be willing to play for them.
only bought 2 of them during my wii-playing daze and am still super-hyped and getting this on day one. Sound on 3ds is solid especially with headphones, so i'm not worried about the downgrades there too much. Considering these games are so built around the music. 3d will be cool when you wanna turn it on. 2d games work better on 3d IMO so far from what i've seen with 3ds. this is a must-buy if you ask me. especially if you never tried these games on wiiware. also if you enjoy good music, especially great beats and slow building grooves, you will absolutely love these games. only problem here is that i played the wiiware versions on bigscreen tvs with a room built on its sound system. and they will likely release this same compilation on "wii2".... but i'm still gonna get it i'm sure. 6 great, creative, new-age games.
For the three people besides me who care, it's cheaper too. $42 for all six games on Wiiware, only $40 for a 3DS title (neither including tax). Plus the 3DS has optional 3-D.
Sweet, the only bit trip game I got was the first, and it was harder than anything I played before that. I cant wait to play all of them!
I never bothered with the series, but it's honestly always interested me to a certain extent. So I'll probably be picking this up when it releases.
never played the bit trip series so maybe I'll get this to have all of them in one convenient cartridge, are they any good just curious?
Goddammit. Another game for my 3DS that I have to buy. Man, at this rate, my other systems are going to be collecting dust for quite some time.
I need to get this I didn't download them so I will purchase this I only played the demo of one Bit Trip game I forget which one it was.
Playing Xbox One games on somebody else's console will also require a check-in every hour. Full Story
