Bit.Trip Saga Collects Every Bit.Trip Game onto a Single Cart--And Makes 'Em 3D

Gaijin Games retro-tastic WiiWare series comes to a platform you might want to play them on.


I cannot express how happy this makes me, you guys. If you haven't played any of Gaijin Games' Bit.Trip games on WiiWare--ARGH. But I can't really blame you. Even as someone who regularly boots up their Wii to play WiiWare games (they exist!), it takes some effort to do so. That said, the Bit.Trip games are phenomenal pixel adventures that treat apply the right amount of nostalgia to modern mechanics.

Aksys Games, Gaijin Games' publisher-in-crime for the Bit.Trip games, announced this afternoon the companies are collecting all six of the Bit.Trip games--Beat, Core, Void, Runner, Flux, Fate--onto a single 3DS cart called Bit.Trip Saga

Yep, 3DS, meaning those beautiful retro graphics are also grabbing a new dimension.

I WANT THIS CART RIGHT NOW. 

Right, sorry. Unfortunately, I don't know when any of us will be playing Bit.Trip Saga, as Aksys Games did not attach a release date to this extradimensional compilation, but one (mememe) hopes it's not far off.     Patrick Klepek on Google+

First 3DS game I'm interested in playing.

That's a good deal!

This is a slight against the train! I will not stand for this! How dare you snatch away one of the biggest WiiWare exclusives and give it to the non-downloadable game crowd. People will die for this! Chooo Chooo!

Posted by RecSpec

Hopefully this comes out soon.

Posted by Hot_Karl

and it looks like we finally have a game that makes me want to buy a 3ds. 

Posted by SolidOcelot

Oh man. Yeah. I will get this just as soon as it's available. :)

Fuck yes, Day one.

 

Posted by Trebz

I am going to devour this. 

Posted by BRG9000

Whoa. I need a 3DS.

Posted by Xpgamer7

MUST BUY NOW.

Posted by virtorio

Finally a decent use for 3D

Posted by Skald

Dudes, Bit.Trip is awesome.


Especially Runner.
Posted by RJPelonia

Uh oh. I think this means I have to buy a 3DS, you guys.

How can anyone NOT be aware of a Nintendo downloadable release? It's impossible.

Posted by l3reak

Well I already feel like my 3DS purchase was justified. Looks like I'll actually be buying a game!

This was way funnier coming from Hitlerchu than it would have been otherwise.

In 3D!? My eyes will probably explode.

As someone who boards the NintenDownload X-Press regularly, I do not approve of digital games making the transition to non-digital media. I know Conductor Gerstmann would not.

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES

What a great idea....


Perhaps the train will chug through this announcement as well!
Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

I want this! I guess I have to wait like 2 years.
Posted by c_rakestraw

I've now found a reason to buy a 3DS. I need to get some cash ASAP so I can buy this on day one!

Also, as far as a release date goes, I read somewhere that Askys games said its slated for a summer release.

Oh......
Posted by Dilenger93

Its kinda of funny that atm this makes me want a 3ds more than zelda or starfox; still not more than mario though ;)

Posted by Gerhabio

This actually sounds like a good idea to me.

Finally. A game for my 3DS


Edited by NegativeCero

Cool. Don't have a Wii, but I'll probably end up with a 3DS at some point. Hopefully I won't end up breaking it immediately though because the one thing I know those games are is hard.

Posted by YukoAsho

Up next - Super Meat Boy 3D.

And so completes the apotheosis of Commander Video.

QFT. Still need some more convincing before I consider buying a 3DS though.

A hand-drawn 'Secret of Mana 3D' remake maybe.
Posted by MustachedPagoda

Part of me believes that the 3DS's analog stick was actually created for this game

Posted by Ozone

I want this. I want this bad.

Posted by moelarrycurly

Best thing I've heard all day.

Posted by crithon

I am now MORE interested in the 3DS then before. That's a great collection

Posted by DrRandle

Posted by MrKlorox

Cool, but also sigh inducing. I hate carts.

Posted by beard_of_zeus

Awesome! Will totally pick this up!

Posted by LordAndrew

Bit.Trip Beat was fun. I don't have a Wii, so most of the series is completely unavailable to me. I guess I'm getting this!

Posted by JJWeatherman

The Bit.Trip games in 3D would blow my mind.


Great games.
Posted by Scrawnto

Oh shit! I am so getting this. I've only played Bit.Trip Beat.


Coincidentally, the founder of Gaijin Games, Alex Neuse, was a guest critic for my game design class today, giving us some advice for our senior projects. He seemed like a cool dude. He also used "choice" as an adjective a lot.

I only ever bought Runner, but damn that game was awesome (and infuriating). Super pumped that the games are making their way to the 3DS - on a cart, no less.
