Gaijin Games has just announced that their newest WiiWare release in their Bit.Trip series BIT.TRIP CORE is headed to the US WiiWare service on July 6th, which will make it the 100th US WiiWare release. Congrats to the guys at Gaijin Games for all their hard work!
Below is a copy of the graphic that adorns their blog which gives away the release date. After seeing the game in action, we're ready to give this bad boy a try.
To tide you over until the release, you can check out the official E3 BIT.TRIP CORE Trailer below for a taste of what you can expect from this unique retro-style WiiWare title.
We'll have more information on BIT.TRIP CORE as it becomes available, as well as a full review soon after its release. And just for the record, the game will not be free. So start saving those Nintendo Points.
I need to get the FIRST ONE. But this ONE looks good. I better get here before Corbie. I FIRST have to ge wii points though.
Awesome! Looks h-core n' after Beat, I'm there! Pal? Nite.
EDIT: lol gg
I will have to put some points aside for this!
EDIT: never mind
Don't make me abuse my admin privileges.
Bit.Trip Brutus indeed. And yes, this will be the 100th WiiWare title. Booyah!
Sweet, a week from Monday.
YAY! I guessed it right!!!
I need some points so I can get this and S&S.
BTW, How many blocks does Swords And Soldiers take up?
This will be my ELEVENTH WiiWare game once I get it
...Oh wait, I was counting VC.
I'll be traveling when this comes out... sigh
Ya the wait is almost over.
Gak! Still need the first one!
Bit. Trip Beat = Awesome! I'm sure Core will be worth the wii points I'm saving
How do you acquire points? CC or buying in store?
Ugh, I can only assume that this will be even worse than Beat.
Mickeymac - Always the optimist i see
Any news on the EU release date anyone?
I was only meh about the first one. But congratz to them getting the honor of the big 100th!
Great pick for the 100th game. Better start saving those Nintendo Points now.
Watched the video.
...yep, it's worse. Not only is it more confusing than Beats, but it also reminds me a lot of one or more minigames that I've grown to revile. Guess I can put another game down on my "ignore" list.
What was confusing about BIT.TRIP BEAT? It was like a rhythm-style version of Pong. Very simple to pick up. Brutal to master. A wonderful combination!
OH SO THATS WHAT 100 MEANT.
We're at 95 games right now so I'm guessing it's gonna be another Triple Release next Monday and a Double for the 6th. In fact, I guess getting Bit.Trip Core to be Game 100 like that might be why they ramped up the amount of releases lately so I imagine it'll go down soon after that.
The colors! It bombarded my senses!O_O I couldn't figure out what was going on on-screen. Honestly, If I ever actually sat down with that game and played it through, it'd probably give me a seizure.>_< And this one doesn't look any better.
Throws seizure causing bits at Mickeymac Eat that, demon!
I know what you don't! And, @WarioFan63, double release on 6th. But, I can't tell you what!
Mmh, it looks even harder than Bit.Trip Beat. And although I like challenges, it seems that in this game the frustrations are more often than before... =(
Excellent choice for the 100th WiiWare release! This game is going to be great!
YES! Bit Trip Core is coming out on my birthday =D I think I am destined to buy this game =)
@WarioFan63. At the very least it means 3 games (inc B.TC) in the next two weeks for America (if you count all the Wiiware that is out including the two only out in Europe you get 97...true I can't see Nintendo counting like that...).
Assuming B.TC, NyxQuest and Proj.Bang are coming out (NyxQuest seems given) then that leaves Water Warefare and...I don't know there seems to be so much that you would have thought would be out ages ago...I'll say Aero Guitar since everyone has forgotten about it.
I guess Bit.Trip Core is getting the 100th game spot becuase Cave Story isn't quite ready...I would have Cave Story would be the milestone title...ah well, it could always happen in Europe
You get Core, we get Water Warfare, everybody's happy?
One of the designers said that he thinks this game is significantly easier than Beat, but I'm with you...it looks insanely hard! Not that that really matters to me, the (often brutal) difficulty of Beat gave it a lot of its personality in my eyes, and I'll be darned curious to see where this falls on the spectrum.
Day 1 purchase for me...but if anyone didn't expect me to say that, then they haven't been paying attention.
I'm with you also. It looks much harder. I hope the designer is right. I'd rather it be easier than harder, though ideally it'd be about the same.
Need more points...
Is there going to be a simulataneous worldwide release? I did bet BEAT for the Japanese Wii, but no localisation was done, so the game was the same and it was 100 points cheaper than EU/NA, so if that's true of CORE, I may get the Japanese WiiWare release of that as well.
I got a new high score in Descent last night; though I'm still in the bottom position at 67x,000 points. I know I'll beat it someday; I'm enjoying having the odd go now and then. It's really such a nice game and I'm looking forward to the follow-up(s).
OMG! I give up.
Just got the 1st one. It took me more than THIRTY-NINE tries to get a high score. Its fun though.
i NEED to crack the last stage in BEAt...CORE cant come soon enought to europe!! that beeeeep, that bumpapapow!
@ Chicken Brutus: "One of the designers said that he thinks this game is significantly easier than Beat"
Mmh, significantly easier would be as bad as too hard like in the video^^.
I still need to beat Bit Trip Beat first. I'll get it for sure.
Anyone know what the control scheme is? Are those d-pad presses or gestures to activate the beams?
Gainscwa, it's all button presses this time around with the d-pad being held in the relevant direction then the 2 button pressed to activate the beams.
I really liked Bit.Trip Beat and this game is looking very good too. For only 600 WiiPoints this is a must-buy.
Perfect timing. Just beat Growth--finally--last week. Man, that's some tough stuff. Quite the epic experience. But I hope CORE isn't too much easier. It certainly looks brain-exploding in those videos. Now all I need is Gunsmoke (VCA) and I'm a happy clam.
@Mickeymac: "If I ever actually sat down with that game and played it through..." Ah, and now we see the source of your nay-saying. Give BEAT a shot! Yes, your skin might melt, but in a very fun way, promise.
