Since wrapping up the Bit.Trip series with the sublime Bit.Trip Flux, Gaijin Games has broadened its horizons, re-releasing some of their more popular titles for PC and iOS. Spending the last few years inducing smiles from Nintendo enthusiasts, the Santa Cruz-based indie studio shifted its focus to PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade, apparently drawing a bit of ire from their most fervent and loyal patrons in the process.

Fear not, perturbed prospective Wii U owner -- the developer has announced their next title, Bit.Trip Presents: Runner 2, Future Legend of Rhythm Alien for Nintendo's next generation console.

Complete with infectious chiptunes courtesy of Fez composer Disasterpeace, Gaijin has also announced a vast array of new abilities, costumes, and close to ten playable characters for the follow-up to Bit.Trip Runner. You can expect Wii U Game Pad support and trophies as well, if you're into that sort of thing.

Review: Nihilumbra

There's a nugget of a solid game here in Nihilumbra. Unlike many of the PlayStation Vita's offerings, it uses the touchscreen in a novel way that doesn't feel tacked on or forced. And the puzzle-platforming is supported well by an ethereal art style, score, and sound design. You just have to wade through a jumble of pseudo-philosophy to get to it.more

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more
