Bit.Trip fans Unite! The third installment of our beloved CommanderVideo’s journey is upon us! If you’ve played the previous titles, then you’re in for a real treat! The most I can say about VOID is, its a cross between Ikaruga and Bit.Trip Beat. Don’t believe? Check out the video up above and see for yourself. The game is due out this Fall and contains four player co-op madness and Gaijin Games brought in a special guest chiptune mixer, “nullsleep” to create some ‘drop it like its hot’ tunes for all of you to groove with while battling the VOID. If you wanna read the whole PR, hit the jump for more. Meantime, if you guys can’t wait to try this bad boy out, Bit.Trip VOID will be PLAYABLE for the first time ever at PAX this weekend!

EXPLORE THE VOID WITH COMMANDER VIDEO

Come along and embark on another fantastic voyage!

Torrance, CA (September 2th, 2009) – Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment software, is proud to announce the next evolution in CommanderVideo’s journey, BIT.TRIP VOID! Developed exclusively for WiiWare™ by the crazy brains at Gaijin Games, BIT.TRIP VOID is the next entry in the critically acclaimed retro-arcade BIT.TRIP series which follows CommanderVideo on his epic journey from the ethereal to the corporeal, and beyond…

THE VOID AWAITS…

BIT.TRIP VOID is a synesthetic exploration of rhythm and music as they pertain to our everyday lives and moods.  In a control scheme brand new to the series, yet wholly familiar to gamers, the player is given complete freedom to move about the screen wherever they desire, interacting with the music in brand new ways.  The classic gameplay aesthetic remains, as color—and the absence of color—are explored to the fullest.

Trip out in up to 4-player co-op and get lost in the beat with your friends!  See if you can survive the onslaught of Beats and further your own BIT.TRIP.

“BIT.TRIP VOID completes the first chapter in CommanderVideo’s journey with a synesthetic exploration of mind/beat interaction.  But as one chapter ends, another begins…” states Alex Neuse, Designer, Gaijin Games. “We hope that you find this game as beautiful as we do, and we can’t wait to make another one for you.  Keep rockin’!”
