Gaijin Games CEO Alex Neuse revealed that its upcoming rhythm platformer Bit.Trip Runner will continue the WiiWare series' tradition of featuring music from renown chiptune artists -- previous entries included songs by Bit Shifter, Bubblyfish, and Nullsleep -- with two tracks provided by the rock stars at Anamanaguchi. If you're unacquainted with the band, here are a few links to help you get familiar.

Neuse also disclosed other details about Bit.Trip Runner, promising 50+ stages filled with fan-submitted art, new (non-playable) characters aside from Commander Video, the ability to directly control Commander Video for the first time, and a spring 2010 release date. According to Nintendo Life, which recently hosted a podcast with Neuse as a guest, the developer is two-thirds of the way through Bit.Trip Runner's development.
