From time to time "coming soon" listings on the Switch eShop reveal games we didn't even know were on the way to Nintendo's hybrid platform, and today is one of those days.
Over on the European eShop, six QubicGames listings have popped up for the Bit.Trip series starring CommanderVideo. There's Bit.Trip Core, Bit.Trip Void, Bit.Trip Runner, Bit.Trip Fate, Bit.Trip Flux and Bit.Trip Beat.
These games all started out life during the WiiWare generation and are currently planned for release on the Switch on 25th December. Each game is priced at £4.49 (or your regional equivalent).
You can pre-order each game now and if you already have one game downloaded you'll get 60% off the rest. Are you interested in replaying any of these entries in the Bit.Trip series? Comment down below.
Why not sell Bit.Trip.Complete or Bit.Trip.Saga to bundle a few together at a discount?
These were inventive, something in always appreciative of!
Love the Bit Trip games. Downloaded them all on Wii, then bought the physical collection on Will, downloaded saga on 3DS, bought Runner 2 on WiiU and Runner 3 on Switch.
@nukatha Yeah agreed. That's how it's mainly sold on all other major consoles, including some of Nintendo's previous consoles
Another Bit.Trip Collection would've been better, but this is still cool.
Oh yes... Bring it to me 😁
I have Bit.Trip Saga but wouldn't mind getting them on Switch. Maybe not Core though. Beats from all sides of the screen was way too much for me.
I have never played one of those games before, No time like the present.
Seems like a bad idea to just put these on the eShop without prior notice. Some marketing before hand would help people find these games. I'm sure they'd get buried very quickly by other titles.
I already own both Complete and Saga yet I know I'm gonna buy these again on Switch.
Published by Qubic Games though, so I might just wait for the inevitable >80% off sale.
Like others, I’d prefer the collection, at the very least just to take up a single icon, but in this release format I’ll likely only purchase Runner.
Where's Runner 2? Never beat that one on Wii U. It isn't something I'm absolutely dying to finish, but if it came to Switch, I would strongly consider it. I really enjoyed the third one, even if it felt a bit short, excluding the platforming worlds which I didn't care for.
I mean they are great games but Bit Trip Saga or Complete have already been released to compile these eShop games. Would gobble up a re-release of them on the Switch
The collection got old very quick so I can't imagine buying any of the games individually tbh...
A little pricey if they charge that amount for each game. I've been tracking either the 3DS or the Wii version. Visually the 3DS one is more appealing to me, but it seems that Wii's has more levels and with luck comes with a soundtrack CD. I'm hesitant, but they're not particularly cheap anyway.
I did the exact same thing apart from the physical collection on Wii.
Would have been great having all these for a physical release on Switch.
Oh yes! Wanted this for so long!
Actually wrote to them requesting it.
I'm up for this!
I bought and enjoyed two of the games as WiiWare, then purchased the Bit.Trip Complete disc, and promptly lost it somewhere. ^_^;;
So now I can get to play a couple of the other titles.
@Moroboshi876 if you buy one you get the rest for 60% off, or around 1.80 each. So the entire collection would end up costing you about £13.50 on Switch, which seems like a decent price.
I wouldn't recommend the 3ds version due to framerate issues, especially in Runner.
@C-Olimar Good to know. Didn't see it in any review. Well, I was kinda preferring Wii's version anyway, because of the CD, but in second hand market it's rarely seen complete with it.
I'm fairly sure I got the collection in a Humble Bundle pack years ago. I put way more time than I was expecting to into these games. I've gotten to the last level of Bit.Trip.Runner, but have never been able to beat it.
I'd for sure buy the collection again, but if they sell them á la carte, then I'm only picking up Runner to get that sweet sweet sense of completion to ease my OCD brain
QubicGames often gives their games away for free, so this is very exciting to me
I was just wanting to play these games the other day funny timing.
I just saw this on the eShop! YES!!! I was just saying a couple weeks back how I wanted these! I mean I'd rather have Complete, but the individual games work too!
I'm guessing we'll also be getting Runner 2 sometime in the near future. That's my favorite one.
Hell yeah! I love me sone Commander Video. Not sure I'll triple dip thoigh
What about Runner 2 though? Also they should do these first 6 games as the Bit.Trip.Complete version which included extra challenges.
Very exciting. Somehow missed out on these via Wii Ware. I will definitely be taking the plunge.
Ummmm... 4.99 as a collection would work. Also 60fps is a must for larger screens. I can't play the Wii U bit trip game as it's 30 FPS.
