The fourth Bit.Trip game will be a rhythm platformer game starring Commander Video.
Gaijin Games' Alex Neuse revealed the first details of the fourth Bit.Trip game, Bit.Trip Runner.
Originally teased during the credits of Bit.Trip Void, Runner will be a rhythm platforming title inspired by Sony's PlayStation game Vib-Ribbon, according to Neuse, who spoke about the game on Nintendo Life's podcast. He said that the gameplay and music interaction will be closer to Beat than Core and Void as players take control of Commander Video and explore stages to the beat of the music.
Runner will feature over 50 stages, which is different from the the three-level structure of past Bit.Trip titles. The stages will feature fan artwork as well as new characters making their debut in Runner.
When talking about Commander Video's appearance in Team Meat's Super Meat Boy, Alex mentions that if Meat Boy doesn't make an appearance in Runner, players should expect him in the next Bit.Trip title.
Finally, Neuse confirms that the music will be provided by Brooklyn based chip punk band Anamanaguchi.
Bit.Trip Runner is going through a polishing process, and Gaijin Games expects the game to be released in the spring.
