Bit.Trip comes to the 3DS with Bit.Trip Saga

Here's a sentence I was hoping I'd get to one day write: Gaijin Games is compiling all of the Bit.Trip games for release on 3DS. When publisher Aksys Games circulated this image, it became fairly clear that such a collection would eventually be forged, but now we have the official word.

No mention of a price or date quite yet, though. Considering it's all six titles on one cartridge, I'd be more than willing to pay full price for Bit.Trip Saga. For now, we'll just have to imagine what these games will look like in 3D. The wait is going to be painful -- I'm sure of it. Heck, it already is!

*Prepare for the BIT.TRIP SAGA in 3D!*
