If you hadn't heard, BIT.TRIP Runner2: Legend of Rhythm Alien came out this week on Steam, Wii U, and XBLA. It was also noted as coming to PSN, although not just yet. The PlayStation Blog has posted news of the game and let us know when it's coming, as well as what to expect. First off, this is developer Gaijin Games' maiden voyage with Sony. Still, with the game being a new take on the series, it shouldn't strike Sony-specific players as an out of place game. Strangely, Runner2 is not making use of Cross-Buy. Choose wisely when selecting either the PS3 or Vita version! As far as has been detailed, there are no functionality differences between the two. Runner2 is set to arrive on March 5th at the cost of $15. However, PS Plus members can knock 20% off the price, bringing it down to $12. Here's a video if you need to check the game out:
Marcus Estrada posted a article in Industry NewsThe BIT.TRIP series is one which has managed to flourish thanks to addictive gameplay and a weird retro/modern aesthetic. Today, Game Music Bundle has partnered up with Gaijin Games to unleash a new bundle on the world. As this is through Game Music Bundle and not, say, Indie Gala or Royale or whoever else, the focus of BIT.TRIP Lovers' Bundle is on music. There are three tiers available, although the first gives you a great deal of music. For $1 to $9 you get all these BIT.TRIP soundtracks: BIT.TRIP BEAT BIT.TRIP CORE BIT.TRIP FATE BIT.TRIP FLUX BIT.TRIP RUNNER BIT.TRIP VOID Putting in $10 to $19 adds in just the Runner2 soundtrack. Finally, for the price of $20 you get all the soundtracks as well as a pre-order on Runner2. Runner2 is set to be out on February 26th. If you shoot for the game then be aware that you're getting a Steam key. If you're a veritable moneybags then you may get a gift. The top contributor will be awarded with a CommanderVideo statue. Everyone in the top five will receive a poster, and then those in the top ten will get a shirt. Right now, the highest contribution is $50.
Ever since indie developers got a good look at the Wii U's eShop, there have been several who have shown great optimism toward the service. Two of these indie devs have recently commended the Wii U eShop, and unlike many others, they can actually tell you first-hand how much of an improvement it is from WiiWare - the Wii's eShop equivalent, aside from how good they think the service is in general. Gaijin Games is an indie developer best known for their BIT.TRIP series, and co-founders Mike Roush and Alex Neuse aren't all that fond of WiiWare, which they've used a lot in the past for their games. "We don't know for sure," Neuse told GamesIndustry.biz., "but it felt like it wasn't taken seriously by Nintendo, the desire for gamers to buy stuff digitally." Mike Roush added that "what's more friendly right out of the starting gate is the Wii U is developed for people to have an eShop to spend their money in and buy games easily." And with the Wii U eShop being more available and without the need for first-party concept approval, Neuse compares the Wii U eShop to the ever-popular Steam service. For the most part, Martin Pichlmair of Broken Rules - developer of WiiWare's And Yet It Moves and the Wii U eShop's Chasing Aurora - agrees with these sentiments, saying that "Literally everything was easier this time around," in comparison to WiiWare. It's good to know that indie devs are happy with Nintendo's new digital downloading service, and it's great to see that the Big N is taking digital downloading more seriously than in the past. Hopefully we'll be seeing some really cool new indie games come along in the near future that make unique use of the Wii U GamePad. There's a lot of potential there, and it should be interesting to see what pops up. Have you tried the Wii U eShop yet? What are your opinions on it?
