Gaijin Games’ Bit.Trip series of rhythmic action games will premiere for the PlayStation 4, PS3, and PS Vita in an upcoming cross-platform compilation titled The Bit.Trip, a recently discovered trophy list reveals. The Bit.Trip‘s trophies leaked before the compilation was officially announced, and reportedly contain six games that initially premiered via Nintendo’s WiiWare service.
Featured games in The Bit.Trip include the Pong-like rhythm game Bit.Trip Beat, side-scrolling platformer Bit.Trip Runner, turret shooter Bit.Trip Core, avoid-the-obstacle action game Bit.Trip Void, arcade-styled shoot-’em-up Bit.Trip Fate, and multi-genre series finale Bit.Trip Flux.
The Trophies that were revealed ahead of the expected announcement reward players for large combo chains, perfect performances, and stage completion across all included games.
The Bit.Trip series has seen a handful of ports and adaptations following its WiiWare debut. The Wii compilation Bit.Trip Complete featured all six games, and the 3DS collection Bit.Trip Saga added platform-exclusive stereoscopic effects. All games in the franchise are also available for PC platforms via Steam.
The series additionally appears on iOS devices with an App Store adaptation of Bit.Trip Beat, along with the spinoffs Bit.Trip Beat Blitz and Bit.Trip Run. An Android version of Bit.Trip Beat is also available.
The series sequel Bit.Trip Presents … Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien premiered in 2013, with ports available for PCs, the PlayStation 3, Wii U, Xbox 360, and PS Vita. Expanding on the platforming gameplay featured in Bit.Trip Runner, Runner2 includes a much larger selection of gameplay environments and playable guest stars from indie games like Super Meat Boy, Machinarium, Cave Story, and Spelunky.
Studio Gaijin Games changed its name to Choice Provision after the launch of Runner2, and currently serves as a publishing banner for games like Shutshimi, Dragon Fantasy, and Shift DX.
A release date for The Bit.Trip is not yet known.
