New XBLA/PSN Platform Game To Use Guitar Controller

leave a comment »

Wondered what else that big lump of elongated coloured plastic can be used for besides Guitar Hero and Rock Band? Well,in what is quite an interesting first, Swedish developer Pieces Interactive is developing a platformer for release on XBLA and PSN which fully utilises existing guitar controllers.

Fret Nice is a 2D platformer with a unique cardboard cut-out esque visual style in which players guide the main character, armed with a guitar no less, through various worlds by using their existing guitar controller.

An interesting premise for sure, but as always, the proof of the conceptual pudding will be when we actually get our hands on it to see how it all comes together.

Or not.

Fret Nice is to due to be release on Xbox Live Arcade and Playstation Network platforms in early 2010.
