Hey all, I was figuring since Bit.Trip Beat's sequel was being hinted at a while, I would link to this at the first sign of an announcement.

Well, here it is: http://www.gamespot.com/wii/puzzle/bittripcore/news.html?sid=...

Gamespot got a hands-on of the second game in the series: Bit.Trip Core, and from the videos, man it looks a lot harder. I hope they aren't as evil in regards to Game Overs and the like, but I have a feeling they will be. Anyways, the game will be out during the summer, so be prepared!

hehe, I would like that. I'm very intrigued with WiiWare stuff, and if I had the income, I'd be willing to get videos and whatnot of them all. Of course, I think NL has enough people, yes?

It's... it's... beautiful! I'm so relieved that they are keeping the same graphical style. That teaser image released a few days ago worried me that they were going 3D (crosses self).
The lack of analog control seems a bit disappointing. That was a big part of what made Beat so fun... and so difficult. I have no doubt that this will be amazing and absolutely worth it, but it does seem like an odd choice to go with such a limited control scheme. Can't wait to see how they make that work!
Is this based on a particular retro game? Beat was clearly inspired by Pong. Anyway have an idea of where Core comes from?

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

So, i'm guessing the Bit.Trip series will mix a different genre with rhythm gameplay in each installment? If that's the case, can't wait to see the platformer genre. :D

Regarding it being harder, Alex (the programmer) said a few times that he thinks this game will be significantly easier. Then again, he also said he might not be trustworthy on that. :)

THANKS FOR THIS!

Just watched it.

Oh mannn. I love this. One thing I like is that the music doesn't stop when you reach the nether zone. It's scaled back, but you still have a beat, which helps you to keep the rhythm and get back on track. I think that's a good thing.

Commander Video, I salute you.

Alex is the designer, not the pogrammer. I believe Chris is the programmer. :) And we're pretty excited about Bit.Trip Core as well.

For sure! I can't wait til we get more gameplay videos out there. The Gamespot ones give a taste for the mechanic, but not for the variety. Since we had a solid base to work with (i.e. BEAT) you'll find that everything is much tighter all around. Alright... wipes brow now onto the next one...

This looks great! I wonder... is this series going to act like Art Style with retro graphics? If this is true, that would be fantastic! I might have to change my top 10 list to incorporate this game, but it deserves to be anticipated.

@DaVeMaN99- If my memory is correct, the last one was really quick to develop (4 months, if I'm not mistaken), so I wouldn't be surprised if this game is released towards the end of the summer.
