New details have emerged about the upcoming Beatles: Rock Band game that was announced in January.
Though we now have a bit more information about the Rock Band game that isn’t actually a Rock Band game, little of the gameplay is going to come as a surprise. According to the press release: “The Beatles: Rock Band will allow fans to pick up the guitar, bass, mic or drums and experience The Beatles extraordinary catalogue of music through gameplay that takes players on a journey through the legacy and evolution of the band’s legendary career. In addition, The Beatles: Rock Band will offer a limited number of new hardware offerings modeled after instruments used by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr throughout their career.” Perhaps that even includes Thomas the Tank Engine?
The pricing is also through, with a not-so-small $59.99 for the standalone game, with $99.99 for the guitars. If you want the whole set though, be prepared for a mortgage-shaking $249.99. Luckily, it will allow the use of other music peripherals like Guitar Hero and you won’t be needing the bowl haircuts.
The Beatles: Rock Band, being developed by Apple Corps, Harmonix and MTV Games for the PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, is scheduled for release on 9/9/09. See what they did there?
