Harmonix is going back to its Amplitude roots in a way with Rock Band Blitz, a downloadable music game that uses a regular controller.

The game comes out first for PSN on August 27 ($14.99) and a day later on XBLA for 1,200 Microsoft Points.

Rock Band Blitz's song library is augmented by the Rock Band store and you can export your music from other Rock Band games. Blitz also comes with 20 songs. Finally, the game's songs are compatible with Rock Band 3, so you can play as a full band if you want.

A few new tunes have also just been announced for Blitz:

  • Avenged Sevenfold – "So Far Away"
  • Fun. ft. Janelle Monáe – "We Are Young"
  • Kool & The Gang – "Jungle Boogie"
  • My Chemical Romance – "Sing"
