Turn the BEAT back and try out BIT.TRIP BEAT!

Developed by Gaijin Games, BIT.TRIP BEAT marks the beginning of CommanderVideo’s adventures through the BIT.TRIP macrocosm, and now players can experience this unique universe of rhythm for themselves for the low price of 0 Wii Points™! Using the Wii Remote™ controller, players will have their fast-twitch skills pushed to the limit as they strive to guide the Commander through a world of deceptively retro 8-bit sights and sounds while being challenged by the decidedly contemporary gameplay design.

BIT.TRIP BEAT STORY

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.

A unique and imaginative combination of 80s visual and audio aesthetics and modern game design, BIT.TRIP BEAT is an addictive and challenging experience that will keep you coming back for more.
