Konami joins Rock Band Revolution Tour
Konami has unveiled a multi-platform, multi-instrument rhythm title called Rock Revolution.
The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions are being handled by Zoe Mode, a Brighton based developer who made EyeToy Play Sports and collaborated with Sony London Studio on Singstar.
The DS and Wii editions will be developed by HB Studios, who are just wrapping up Big Beach Sports for Wii.
Only the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions will include extra peripherals. Konami boasts that the game will feature "the most realistic drum peripheral on the market," with six pads and a kick pedal that mimics an actual kit.
A five-note guitar peripheral can be used for lead guitar or bass. So far there's been no mention of a microphone.
Wii and DS uses will have to contend with using the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to emulate playing a guitar and drums, which should - if nothing else - be hilarious to see how it works.
The initial release will feature forty songs and downloadable tracks will follow on PS3 and Xbox 360. According to Shacknews, Konami has confirmed all songs will be cover versions.
No set list has been released so far, but spotted during the demonstration were Blitzkrieg Bop, Chop Suey, Run to the Hills, Cum On Feel the Noize and Joke and the Thief.
Rock Revolution is dated for October in the States.
