Bit.Trip Fate is an on-rails side-scrolling shoot-'em-up that finds CommanderVideo riding the vibe to discover his fate. CommanderVideo will need a little help from the friends he made in Bit.Trip Runner to thwart the Mingrawn Timbletot, who has mutated the world into an ugly technological nightmare. Join forces with the Junior Melchkin, CommandgirlVideo and others to increase CommanderVideo’s power and save the world. Whether you play in single-player mode or team up with a co-pilot, you’ll need a steady hand to navigate the vibe and aim your blasters at the twisted souls out to destroy you.

I also played this AGAIN today because it's out on the Nintendo eShop for download on the 3DS! I must say it's better than I remember. The music is totally outstanding.

But hey, I made the damn game so don't listen to me! You can just go ahead and read Nintendo Life's review and see why they gave it a 90! HERE.
