TORRANCE, Calif. – September 13, 2011 – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, in collaboration with game developer Gaijin Games, is pleased to announce that BIT.TRIP SAGA and BIT.TRIP COMPLETE are available now on the Nintendo 3DS™ and Wii™ systems, respectively. BIT.TRIP COMPLETE is a complete six-game retail compilation, packaged with a BIT.TRIP Soundtrack Sampler audio CD and packed with 120 new challenges. BIT.TRIP SAGA features full a 3D presentation that you can take with you wherever you go! BIT.TRIP COMPLETE and BIT.TRIP SAGA include: BIT.TRIP BEAT, BIT.TRIP CORE, BIT.TRIP VOID, BIT.TRIP RUNNER, BIT.TRIP FATE, and BIT.TRIP FLUX!

“Bit.Trip Complete pulls together all six titles in Gaijin Games’s retro-inspired, genre-smashing Bit.Trip series on one Wii disc, and you’re not likely to find a compilation that offers a more diverse selection of games—or a more entertaining overall experience.” – Nintendo Power (Sept. 2011)  BIT.TRIP COMPLETE Review: 9/10

“You also have to perfect the challenge from top to bottom in order to successfully complete it, something that will take many tries and a level of profanity that would likely make Chris Rock blush.” – Nintendo Life (BIT.TRIP COMPLETE)

“...these games look absolutely fantastic on the smaller screen of the 3DS.” – Nintendo Life (BIT.TRIP SAGA)

“...with the addition of 3D visuals, the games in handheld compilation Bit.Trip Saga are crazier than ever.” – Nintendo Power (Sept. 2011) BIT.TRIP SAGA Review: 8/10

“Bit.Trip SAGA stands alone as a visually enhanced, portable repackaging of some of the best games of this generation of consoles. Just like Paris, Bit.Trip SAGA is for lovers.” – Destructoid Review: 8.5/10

Alex Neuse’s (CEO/Co-founder of Gaijin Games) Favorite BIT.TRIP COMPLETE Challenges:

  • BEAT - Gremlin - One beat.  50+ bounces.
  • CORE - Insector Gadget - These beats move like insects.  Watch them as they enter the playfield to ensure accurate timing.
  • VOID - Mirror Mirror - as if keeping black and white beats straight wasn't difficult enough, try to do it while they move with a mind of their own.  Or do they...
  • RUNNER - Tramampoline - There is very little floor in this level.  Bounce on the Lesser Timbletots to make it to the end.
  • FATE - Lava Burton - Can you beat the heat in this avoidance challenge?
  • FLUX - Guardian Angle - A nefarious barrage of beats that come at your paddle in unexpected and strange angles.
