Bit.Trip Beat Arrives Today On WiiWare!

March 16, 2009

Commander Video comes in peace…

Aksys Games, a publisher of
interactive entertainment software, is pleased to announce the arrival of
Commander Video in BIT.TRIP BEAT! Developed exclusively for WiiWare™ by Gaijin
Games, BIT.TRIP BEAT marks the first adventure of Commander Video. Utilizing the
Wii Remote™, players will control their paddle and bounce back their formidable
foe, “the beat”. Will your twitch skills take you to the top of the score charts
or will you see oblivion?! 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. "Its deceptively simple aesthetics and gameplay hide a
challenging and addicting beast of a game," states Michael Manzanares, Producer
at Aksys Games. “We’re very happy that everyone finally gets a chance to
experience 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…
