Harmonix Unveils Instrument Free Rock Band
Called Rock Band Blitz, the downloadable title will see release on both Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network later this year. The game riffs off of mechanics introduced in Harmonix’s core series and, aside from the 25 songs already packaged in the download, will allow you use of all imported and downloaded songs from the RBN Store.
Music games that don’t have “Dance” in the their name are sadly on the fringe, but perhaps Harmonix’s doing away with a closet’s worth of plastic instruments will simplify the experience enough for the genre to draw in a crowd once again. Click the link for our first glimpse at Rock Band Blitz.
