'Bit.Trip Beat' (Wii) - New Screens

by Rainier on Jan. 26, 2009 @ 4:08 p.m. PST

Using the Wii Remote, players will test their twitch skills as they battle through a retro-esque universe, familiar to the old generation and yet reinvented for the new.

Everything comes from something. We were before we became. From life comes rhythm, and from rhythm comes life. We are beings of information. Everything is a conduit for learning. We communicate in bits and bytes. And we will return to something once we become nothing; after our Bit.Trip is complete. “Bit.Trip Beat is a crazy mix of 80s aesthetics and modern game design,” states Michael Manzanares, Producer of Aksys Games. “It's challenging, yet fair, and completely addicting."

“The Gaijin Games team wanted to make a game that used the tools of today to inspire the fun of yesterday. Our goal was to make a game that was as simple in gameplay as the games of the early 80s and equally as fun--even though gamers' tastes have changed over the years,” continues Alex Neuse, Designer of Gaijin Games. “And let's face it, sometimes a really good videogame is just awesome. We hope you enjoy Bit.Trip Beat.”

Key Features:

  • Bring Back That Loving Feeling: Bit.Trip Beat brings back the classic arcade-style gameplay where getting the high score matters!
  • Pixel Blocks For The Win: Keeping the arcade-style gameplay isn't enough, Bit.Trip Beat sports a unique retro-inspired art style that will stimulate your senses.
  • Old School Tunes: Who said old-school 8-bit music was out? Bit.Trip Beat bumps the latest chiptune music to keep the action fresh!
  • Friends Can Play Too!: Can't beat a level? No problem, Bit.Trip Beat allows 2 to 4 player co-op mode! But don't think that makes it any easier…

Aksys Games' Bit.Trip Beat, developed by Gaijin Games, is scheduled to be released on WiiWare in 2009.
