THE BIT.TRIP is a compilation re-release of the original BIT.TRIP hexalogy released digitally on Sony's PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PlayStation Vita (PS Vita) systems on December 5th, 2015. The compilation included all six of the original games with the difficulty modes from in BIT.TRIP COMPLETE, as well as its own collection of Trophies, the PlayStation equivalent to Achievements. The digital version also featured Cross-Buy, a promotion wherein buying the game for one system (e.g. PlayStation 4), entitled players to a free copy for the other system (PlayStation Vita).

Two physical editions of the game were released by Limited Run Games in 2018. The first edition, dubbed the "Limited Edition" was released on January 19, 2018. Only 5,300 copies were printed, 3,000 for PS4 and 2,300 for the Vita, they were made available indefinitely, but sold out quickly. The second edition, the "Special Limited Edition" or "PAX Edition" was an alternate release with special boxart. It was made available during a limited 4-day period during the PAX East convention that same year. Only 1,800 copies were printed, 900 per system. Copies sold out before the event had ended. Had they not, the remaining copies would've been pulled from Limited Run's storefront. The physical version did not have a cross-buy feature.

As of the release of the PlayStation 5, owners of The BIT.TRIP can still play the game thanks to cross-generation compatibility between PS4 and PS5.

Both the PS4 and PS Vita releases are still available to buy digitally on their respective storefront(s).
