The music game genre has taken a bit of a dip over the last couple of years with titles like Rock Band
and Guitar Hero
losing steam after an incredibly successful run. We've seen some other titles come out that were not up to snuff of the top two titles in the genre, but now could be the time for another title to step up to the plate. Realta Entertainment
is taking the chance by releasing the hyped title Bandfuse: Rock Legends
this holiday season, offering players the chance to play a new music title, but learn how to actually play an instrument at the same time. We have seen this before with Rocksmith, and while that title came out to some average to decent reviews, Bandfuse
looks to be stepping their game up, promising a far more robust interface and packages that will be competitively priced, available for those who may or may not have a guitar. November 19 is now the official launch date, with varying packages available to everyone.
