Bit. Trip Saga Is Coming To The Nintendo eShop For Cheap

By Ishaan . December 7, 2012 . 4:00pm

Bit. Trip Saga is headed to the Nintendo 3DS as a Nintendo eShop download.


The compilation of Gaijin Games’ six Bit. Trip games—that originally debuted on WiiWare—was released as a retail 3DS title last year for $40. You’ll soon be able to download it for much cheaper, though.


Bit. Trip Saga will cost $14.99 on the Nintendo eShop. It will contain Bit. Trip Beat, Bit. Trip Core, Bit. Trip Void, Bit. Trip Runner, Bit. Trip Fate and Bit. Trip Flux.


Bit. Trip Saga will be released in North America on December 20th. Aksys Games are listed as the eShop publisher.

    Smart move. That’s about as much as I paid for my cart some weeks ago. Full price would have been a bad idea at this point.

    Although I must admit, I wasn’t too enthralled by many of the games. Might be just me though… but I kinda liked Beat better on the Wii, and the other games didn’t click much with me.

  • God everything I asked for for Christmas is getting alternatives. I wouldn’t have minded having this as a digital version instead!

    Ah well, can’t complain regardless. Glad to hear they’re doing this, though.

    At first I got excited at having Bit.Trip Saga on my WiiU all shinylike.

    Then I realized this was for 3DS, and continued to be excited; Knowing that for a $15 double dip I could always have Bit.Trip at my fingertips wherever I went, even with other titles in the 3DS. :3

    The only one I liked was Runner— but BOY did I like Runner! I’d buy it just for that; hell, I’d buy Runner’s soundtrack at $15.

      It’s funny, because of the 3 I’ve played so far (Beat, Core, and Runner), Runner was my least favorite. Beat was my favorite, hard as hell as it was. I know I’m in the minority with that though.

      • almostautumn

        Runner might be the fave, but each do have their own assortment of fans. Really great series all-around, pretty much applicable to any gamer, as the diversity is excellent. They remind me of the old GBA import series, Bit Generations, also— which I’m totally going to go play now (Orbital <3)!

        If you liked Beat you should check out Flux too, which is essentially Beat 2. However, I liked Beat better on Wiiware – with the touch screen it wasn’t quite as interesting, and the slide pad was too sensitive to be even just playable.

        • Wait, Beat doesn’t let you tilt the 3DS to control it like on the Wii?

          • malek86

            Nope. I imagine they either didn’t want to disrupt the 3D effect, or didn’t have time to implement it properly… anyway, only touch or slide pad.

            And with the pad it’s pretty much unplayable, like I said, so you are left with the touch screen, which is not bad per se, but doesn’t feel as nice as the Wiiware version.

          • Wow, that just killed off my interest completely. Thanks for the heads up. :/
