Disney Interactive announced a new title this morning “Fantasia: Music Evolved,” which the company is calling a, “breakthrough musical motion video game.” Here are the new details that were released for the game.
The title itself was inspired by Disney’s classic animated film “Fantasia,” and will be available for Xbox One, and Kinect for Xbox 360 in 2014. Developed by Harmonix Music Systems, the world’s leading music and motion game developer, “Fantasia: Music Evolved” transports players to a “breathtaking world where music and magic combine to transform extraordinary interactive landscapes in entirely new and creative ways!” according to Disney Interactive.
In this game, players enter the magical realms of Fantasia, selected by the legendary sorcerer Yen Sid to hone their musical and magical prowess as his new apprentice. “Fantasia: Music Evolved” takes players on an interactive and immersive motion-controlled journey through worlds of music and magic, unleashing their creativity along the way.
Using Kinect motion control technology and natural, controller-free gameplay, players will control the music flow from some of the industry’s biggest acts, including electronic DJ and producer AVICII, chart-topper Bruno Mars, and rock royalty Queen. “Fantasia: Music Evolved” gives players creative power to change the mix of their favorite songs in real-time, choosing between the original recording and new remixed versions, or adding new layers of music via magical manipulators that allow them to change music.
“Fantasia: Music Evolved” will feature tracks from over 25 leading artists, each featuring two unique remixes in addition to the original recording. The current announced artists and songs that will appear in the “Fantasia: Music Evolved” video game include:
