    The newest Nintendo Power issue has confirmed the release of a brand new rhythm-based WiiWare game titled 'Bit.Trip: Beat' Here's a quote from the source that will tell you what it's all about:

    Apparently, if you remain on-beat, the graphics will become flashier. If you start playing poorly and missing, the graphics will become dull. The game has three levels, each with a "boss battle" at the end. It will also feature four player co-op, and 5 more releases are planned for the series.

    Very cool! I'm a huge retro fan. I'm so glad that 'the pixel' get's its most deserved respect again nowadays. At first glance this looks like Pong! Pong with a twist sounds mighty alrighty!

    Sounds like a less exciting version of Rez [​IMG]

    I look forward to seeing gameplay videos though. [​IMG]

    I've recently decided I'm hugely into both rhythm games and the 8bit sound despite having hardly any memories of the origins. (At least it reminds me of countless hours with my Gameboy)

    The game itself certainly looks promising at a glance, but I don't like the sound of a 'series', unless of course they just can't physically fit it all into the one title. *insert rant about memory issues here*

    Looks nice!
    Hopefully I really like it, because the text says there are 5 sequels planned for the series [​IMG]

    I like the sound of this game, simple stuff like this is what makes WiiWare great.

    There previous WiiWare titles have been pretty crappy but they have done some decent DS & Wii titles (as well as some rotten ones) so who knows how this could turn out.
