New Rhythm Game From Rock Band Creators Ditches Plastic Instruments
This week Harmonx lifted the lid on a new entry to the Rock Band franchise that does away with peripherals. Called Rock Band Blitz, this new single player, downloadable title for PSN and XBLA closely resembles Amplitude which was also created by Harmonix and released back in 2003 for the PS2.
With a single controller players manage five separate instruments which are each represented on screen by a note track that scrolls from top to bottom. Owners of previous Rock Band titles will be happy to know that many of the tunes from the entire Rock Band library will be supported in Blitz and the 25 new tracks included in the digital title will also be available for Rock Band 3.
Rock Band Blitz is due out this Summer for a yet to be announced price.
