The lights are on
Zen Studios, the development team best known for creating the Zen Pinball series, today announced KickBeat, a new rhythm title for PlayStation Vita.
KickBeat combines "beat-matching mechanics with an acrobatic style of martial arts, turning every song into a raucous battle." Players can also create their own tracks in the game using music from their digital library.
“Several years ago, we asked ourselves, 'What would happen if we took a beat-matching game, replaced the abstract cues like bars, arrows, and button icons with kung fu fight scenes, and set it all to some incredibly intense music?'” said Neil Sorens, Creative Director for Zen Studios.
"We spent three years turning that idea into in KickBeat, and anyone looking for something fresh and exciting and the music genre is in for a treat."
The soundtrack includes several different musical artists, such as Pendulum, Marilyn Manson, and indie bands Celldweller and Blue Stahli. KickBeat is due out this summer. Check out the launch trailer and screenshots below!
That looks like a really great game and that bands in it are really awsome cant wait for it
Wow...this is actually really cool. Can't wait to see more!
Thought I was going to get a laugh out of the trailer. To my surprise this game looks awesome.
I came here to just blindly bash this, but after the read and screenshots I may have changed my mind, hopefully a demo comes out. Most vita games have none.
A rhythm game with Celldweller AND Blue Stahli, wrapped up in the facade of a fighting game...
I may have to get a Vita...
Thank god the gameplay looks better than the story/voice acting. +1 for letting us use our own music, Zen Studios rocks
Looks amazing lets see how this turns out to be
Huh, interesting. I might actually play this.
An action dance game?
