BIT.TRIP BEAT is retro awesomeness

This week’s release for Nintendo’s WiiWare is BIT.TRIP BEAT. The game is kind of like what you’d get if you had seen a game like Amplitude or Frequency done on the Atari 2600. The game supports up to four players, has a killer 8-bit soundtrack, and features some devilishly addictive gameplay. Check out the video below for a peek into the game.

If this is the sort of stuff that we continue to see on WiiWare, I may have to up my budget on Nintendo’s downloadable offerings. Stuff like this, Lost Winds, and World of Goo are just fantastic uses of the platform.
