Konami reveal new Rock Revolution details
New details regarding Konami’s Rock Revolution have been released. Rock Revolution is set to release with more than 40 tracks which will work similarly to current ‘rhythm action’ games such as Rock Band and Guitar Hero. Players can compete online and offline using one of 15 avatars or work together in co-operative modes and band competitions with up to four players. Konami have confirmed that Rock Revolution will contain a ‘Rehearsal’ mode, in which players can practice songs within the game, as well as ‘Studio’ mode which allows users to freeform their own tracks and record them on the game’s exhaustive multi-track studio.
The title boasts the “most authentic drum kit imaginable” and will also have bass and lead guitar accessory support. The game has been designed and honed by real musicians, and features a wealth of innovative single-player and multi-player modes. The Wii version of the game will allow Air Guitar and Air Drum play via the Wii Remote and Nunchuk controllers whilst the motion-sensor will be used so the player can pull off rock-star like moves including scissor kicks and “instrument abuse”.
Rock Revolution will be released on the PlayStation 3, Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 early next year (Q1 2009) with downloadable song packs on a regular basis available to download from the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace.
