The WiiWare service has had it fair share of ups and downs over the years, but the Bit Trip series of games were something unique and special that just could not be found on any other platform. The simplicity of their design, combined with challenging enough gameplay to make even the most talented player throw their controller on the floor in anger made you think twice about the Wii’s inability to make something worthwhile enough for the immensely starving hardcore crowd. I have personally played through each and every title in some way shape or form, wanting to give up on numerous occasions, but they are just such engrossing and addictive experiences that I couldn’t do it for fear of missing out on something great and rewarding in the end.
Now that the series is finished with the release of Flux back in February of this year, the people over at Gaijin and Aksys games have decided to release a compilation pack for fans entitled Bit Trip Complete. While no official pricing or release details have been given as of yet, other than sometime later this summer, a full list of what new content will be included has been released.
Here is what you will have to look forward to in Bit Trip Complete:
120 completely new BIT.TRIP challenges spanning all six games
Exclusive Audio Gallery with fan remixes, original songs, and demo versions of existing BIT.TRIP themes
Exclusive Image Gallery with production stills, concept art, and promo images
Exclusive Video Gallery with more than 25 movies telling the story of CommanderVideo
6 Letters to BIT.TRIP Fans, written by Alex Neuse, the series’ director
Exclusive BIT.TRIP Soundtrack Sampler CD with music from all six games
All 6 games in the award-winning BIT.TRIP series in one complete package
New difficulty modes in all games
Giving something like this to fans is a wonderful thing in my opinion. More often than not, the majority of titles that are even at the very least somewhat memorable, on either WiiWare or DSiWare, are completely forgotten about by most people. This tends to happen because of how well titles on the XBLA and PSN are marketed in comparison to these services. Nevertheless, whether you are a fan or not, be sure to least give “complete” a try when it comes out. Be on the lookout for an update on the release date, and more, right here at tqcast.com.
