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

6:30 PM on 04.28.2011 // Jordan Devore

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!*

Community Question: Have you ever purchased a game only to regret it later and then sell it/give it away, only to even later regret selling it and wind up purchasing it again?

A decadent staircase adorned in gold rises into infinite darkness. Writhing beings beyond comprehension lurk in the shadows, their mere presence encroaching on the edges of human understanding. A blood moon glows . I am losing my mind. I need more eyes...

We need to be implanted with microchips because I'd really like to know how much time I've spent playing different video games my entire life.

Today's agenda: job-hunting and startup of a second playthrough of either Phantom Dust or Front Mission 4. I can't decide. I'm on a sixth-gen kick.

If there are rainbows in Xenoblade Chronicles X, Reyn must be in it as well. You can't have a rainbow without Reyn, baby!

I really hope Xenoblade become it's own franchise, it has way too much potential to simply being reduced to 2 games.

Touchable Holograms? When this eventually matures and hits market, almost all our regulars will vanish for weeks.

Xenoblade Chronicles Wii for €10? Sure, Nintendo, don't mind if I do!

Super Smash Bros. 4 has too much content. So much so I almost don't want a sequel. I honestly hope that NX gets a "Super Smash Bros. For NX" port rather than a new installment. It could be a GOTY edition and come with all of the DLC.

Bought my first full-priced physical 3DS game ever - New Style Boutique 2: Fashion Forward. I'll try to write a post on the previous game at some point before doing the same with NSB2.

How do you guys manage to buy all these games at day 1 with such huge backlogs?

Guys if I were to do a thing, how many of you would watch my thing because I was thinking of doing a thing but I dunno if people really like that kinda thing so I just wanted to know if you liked that thing because I'm thinking of doing a thing, you know?

Bayonetta 2 is 40% off in the EU Nintendo eShop today. If you have a WiiU and don't have this game you are a horrible person and I want nothing to do with you. You can amend your errors by buying it. Xenoblade Wii is also 50% off as well.

My dreams are really weird and scary, so I hope it's okay if I let them be dreams.

Finally played the last two Shantae games. Risky's Revenge wasn't bad, but Pirate's Curse was damn good.

Memo to self: spend your time cleaning before wasting ten or so hours on a cblog you'll end up just scrapping because you're incompetent and incapable of writing on the subject.
Is there an occupation out there for people who want to give up and not worry about shit for a while until they can recompose themselves before going back into society?
