If you couldn’t tell from the title this game takes its inspiration from Disney’s classic Fantasia animated film, and will feature a visual style similar to the movie.
Gamers won’t need a controller to play Fantasia: Music Evolved as it relies on motion controls only. From the description in the press release it seems as if this game will not follow the tried and true rhythm game formula of timing notes with button presses, but rather gamers will have to interact with the flow of the song to add new beats to it, or to switch between various remixes of a particular tune. It basically puts you in the role of the wizard’s apprentice, and you will need to use your “magic” to influence a high score and ultimate victory.
It’s not clear whether this game will feature music from Fantasia, or actual musical artists throughout time, but it seems as if the latter will be the case. As of right now a few big name artists have been confirmed to be in the game:
- AVICII – “Levels”
- Bruno Mars – “Locked Out Of Heaven”
- Fun. – “Some Nights”
- Kimbra – “Settle Down”
- Queen – “Bohemian Rhapsody”
More details and a playable version of Fantasia: Music Evolved will be on display at E3, so hopefully we will get some hands on time with it. For more information and your first look at the game you can head down past the break to watch a trailer and view some game screens.
Fantasia: Music Evolved is set to ship in 2014 for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 with kinect.
