BIT.TRIP FATE is an on-rails side-scrolling shoot-‘em-up that has CommanderVideo riding the vibe to discover his fate. CommanderVideo will need a little help from the friends he made in BIT.TRIP RUNNER to thwart the Mingrawn Timbletot who has mutated the world into an ugly technological nightmare.

Whether you play in single-player or team up with a co-pilot, you’ll have to keep a steady hand to navigate the vibe and aim your blasters at the twisted souls out to destroy you.

FATE is the penultimate chapter in the six-part BIT.TRIP series that will leave you wondering what’s next. The Nunchuk™ accessory controls CommanderVideo and the Wii Remote™ controller's pointer fires anywhere on screen! Collect power-ups to call on CommanderVideo’s friends for powerful shot upgrades! A chiptune-inspired dubstep soundtrack helps bring the action to a whole new level! Video game worlds collide with appearances from Super Meat Boy and Mr. Robotube! Chipmusic artist Minusbaby helps set the tone with a special guest appearance! Ride the vibe in BIT.TRIP FATE to discover where CommanderVideo’s true mission will take him.
