WiiWare "rhythm-based platforming". (Mental note, add as genre.)


Torrance, CA (April 30, 2010) - Aksys Games, a publisher of interactive entertainment products, announces Gaijin Games's newest addition to the BIT.TRIP series, BIT.TRIP RUNNER exclusively for WiiWare™! For the first time play as Commander Video in this on-rails rhythm platformer!

“I went through so many emotions all at once: confusion, joy, determination, and success!” says Cherie Baker, PR Specialist, Aksys Games. “After an hour with Commander Video, I can honestly say I feel hardcore again. You will too once you get your hands on that controller.”


Rhythm-based Platforming: Jump, kick, slide, and shield yourself from the obstacles of a foreign planet. Timing is everything. Keep that beat flowing and Commander Video running! Boss Battles Against Robotic Terrors: Can Commander Video outwit evil aliens and an angry miner?! 50+ Challenges: Special bonus stages that resemble retro console classics! Classic NES-style Controls: Less than a minute to learn, and you and the Commander are off! Traditional side-scroller controls are the only way to go. The Wii Remote keeps it real with the +Control Pad and the 1 and 2 Buttons. A Pounding Chiptune-Inspired Soundtrack: Features special-chiptune-guest-star Anamanaguchi so you know you'll be moving and grooving through stages and boss fights! About Aksys Games
