Gaijin Games, the guys behind the BIT.TRIP series, have gobbled up Robotube Games, an independent game dev specializing in web-based puzzle games and videogame documentaries.

Studio head and CEO Alex Neuse: "Our bio-absorption of Robotube Games, its licenses, brands, personnel, and flavors allows us to head in new directions that Gaijin Games was heretofore unable to pursue. Building up brands has always been a passion of ours, and this acquisition allows us to focus on creating more unique franchises faster than ever."

As for what the company has coming, there's an announced Nintendo 3DS title. Also, Robotube Games is currently working on an iPad version of Bloktonik, which will come out this spring. The company also hints at a new announcement for GDC, so stay tuned.
