It was released on September 13, 2011 in North America and in the PAL region by Rising Star Games on March 16, 2012. It is a compilation of the six downloadable video games released for the Nintendo Wii's WiiWare service, including Bit.Trip Beat, Bit.Trip Core, Bit.Trip Void, Bit.Trip Runner, Bit.Trip Fate, and Bit.Trip Flux.

Gameplay[edit]

All six of the Bit.Trip titles support the Nintendo 3DS' stereoscopic 3D visual effects. All of the games feature "simple graphics" and "challenging gameplay tied to a soundtrack of Atari 2600-like bleeps".[3]

Development[edit]

Bit.Trip Saga was announced on April 28, 2011 in a press release by Aksys Games, its publisher. Gaijin Games, along with Aksys, was responsible for the creation of all the Bit.Trip titles included in this collection, which included Bit.Trip Beat, Bit.Trip Core, Bit.Trip Void, Bit.Trip Runner, Bit.Trip Fate, and Bit.Trip Flux.[3]
