Bit.Trip Saga, Bit.Trip Complete Get Bit.Trippy in September

BEAT. CORE. VOID. RUNNER. FATE. FLUX.

Bit.Trip Runner made me want to kill and hug myself at the same time. LOVE AND HATE.

If you haven't played any of the Bit.Trip games, a solution is en route. Gaijin Games and Aksys Games are bundling all the games in the series--Beat, Core, Void, Runner, Fate, Flux--for both 3DS and Wii. The former's coming under the name Bit.Trip Saga, the latter as Bit.Trip Complete.

Each version's getting bonuses, too. On 3DS, it's...3D. And if there ever was a series whose visuals were perfectly matched for the benefits of 3D, Bit.Trip is it. On Wii, it's a soundtrack sampler, 120 challenges, audio and video galleries with remixes and production art, additional difficulty modes (as if these games weren't hard enough to begin with), online leaderboards and letters from the developers.

Both are dropping on September 13. Bit.Trip Runner in 3D? I'm in a puddle of drool.

No Steam?

This might get me to buy a 3DS.

I love this series. Even if the only one I've actually completed is Runner.

YES~!

Posted by autobzooty

Can't wait, games are perfect to play on the go.

Now give me Bit.Trip Runner 2!

Posted by Xpgamer7

I'll be getting the 3DS one then, even if the wii edition is overcompensating.

Getting 3DS version. Will get wii version when price drops.

I love Bit.Trip Beat and Runner so much. <3

Glad they're getting re-releases.

Posted by YukoAsho

Good to see they're getting disc/cartridge releases.  I stayed away because of the Wii's horrible store.

Posted by Roomrunner

YEEEEEEEAAAAAAHHHHHH

Good on them. I have bought all of them on wii, but I would love to support a great company with a 3DS purchase.

Posted by MattyFTM

I want the other Bit.Trip games to come to PC. I have Beat and Runner, but none of the others are on PC. Port them over, Gaijin!!!!!

Looks good

The 3DS version doesn't get the extra levels? Lame. 
 
Still, really happy they put a date on this!

Posted by Winternet

Make this in the PC and I buy it day one.

Edited by mbkish

I think the reason why I never played it is because I don't own a damn WII! Why not release it on another system, one that you haven't made it for in the past.

Posted by Vexxan

Neat!

Posted by WickedCobra03

I am just happy it is coming to the Wii in its complete form. I would buy the 3DS version, but still do not have one because I feel like the hardware is kinda incomplete... I guess I am just waiting on a second revision. I guess I still feel burned from buying the original Nintendo DS "fatty".

Posted by CookieMonster

I think might end up picking this up

Posted by BitterAlmond

I'm really glad to see these games make it to full-fledged game boxes. They're definitely worth the money.

Posted by Ub3rSlug

I was looking around for a collection of these games the other day, glad there is something coming out to satisfy my wish to play through the whole series.

Posted by Shaanyboi

ffffuuuuuu........ I know I want to play this on the go, but the Wii collection sounds REALLY nice...

What now, do I get both?! God damnit!

Posted by Winsord

Neat, but the Bit.Trip games have never had much lasting power for me.

Posted by Pickingwings

This would give me a reason to buy a 3DS as I loved Bit.Trip.Beat and Runner looks fantastic just by itself.

Posted by MeatSim

Like what everyone else said. This should come to PC.

Posted by Lind_L_Taylor

I got one of those on the PC.  Would be nice on XBL,
but I doubt I'd buy it.

Posted by kollay

Fuck 1-11 in Runner.

That's all.

Posted by Hi_Voltg3

Started this series up two days ago on the 3DS version. Loving every single second of all of them.
