3DS Final Hardware: Cosmo Black

Gaijin Games, known for the Bit.Trip series, is working on a 3DS game. I talked with Alex Neuse and Mike Roush, both of Gaijin, about the project at IndieCade on Sunday in downtown Culver City, Calif.

After talking about the Bit.Trip franchise, I questioned the pair over whether Gaijin had any plans for Nintendo 3DS. Neuse was happy to confirm that the developer was working on a 3DS project.

“[Gaijin Games] just recently got our 3DS dev kit, and we’re working on a 3DS project,” he said. “But we’re not quite ready to say exactly what it is yet. It will be a Gaijin awesome game.”

The Bit.Trip series has been a download-only affair, first appearing on Nintendo WiiWare. As such, I wondered whether the developer’s game would be a retail release or downloadable title. Neuse said that “it’s not totally decided, but we’ll probably go retail.”

But when can we expect Gaijin’s 3DS game?

“The smart company would put [the game] out near launch, let’s put it that way,” Roush said.

Gaijin Games’ next game is Bit.Trip Fate, which the developer says will hit WiiWare in a matter of weeks. Nintendo of Japan announced that 3DS would hit North America in March.
