Fate is "a much darker episode in our hero's life," Neuse said in the release date announcement, "and is full of depressing themes, dreary hidden messages, sad music, and an overall gloomy theme.

It's finally officially official. No more beating around the 8-bit bush. This sucker's coming out! And it's coming out soon!
BIT.TRIP FATE will hit virtual shelves on October 25th, 2010.
And to whomever started that INSANE rumor about it coming out on the 18th, SHAME ON YOU! For. Shame.
"BIT.TRIP FATE is like the Empire Strikes Back of the BIT.TRIP series." said Alex Neuse, CEO of Gaijin Games (me) "It's a much darker episode in our hero's life, and is full of depressing themes, dreary hidden messages, sad music, and an overall gloomy theme. YOU'LL LOVE IT!"
So, yeah, 800 points is what it'll set ya back. And I daresay it's worth it!
As number five in the critically acclaimed BIT.TRIP series, FATE takes us one step closer to the thrilling conclusion of CommanderVideo's journey. Like other games in the series, it's rhythm/music based, and it brings retro graphics, sound, and gameplay to Wii gamers--albeit with a modern flair.
