Hey America, stop announcing games in the middle of the night! This news came through late last night when everyone at TSA Towers was safely tucked up in bed, dreaming of a Flashback remake.
Harmonix, who invented Guitar Hero, got bough out by Activision, left Activision and invented Rock Band, has announced a new game via G4TV. The game is a PSN/XBLA downloadable that doesn’t need a mini plastic guitar or drum kit to play. It’s called Rock Band Blitz and it will use a controller to dextrously navigate that familiar rolling note highway. Players will jump between instruments in order to build their scores most successfully.
It will launch with 25 songs but, in a moment of inspired consideration for fans, will be able to access and utilise any previous Rock Band tracks you’ve downloaded on to your console. Blitz will also have access to the Rock Band Store, meaning a potential catalogue of 3,500 tracks on launch day. The 25 that come with Blitz will also be backwards compatible with Rock Band 3, a further consideration for franchise fans.
