Harmonix’s new rhythm game still looks delightfully odd–now with more classical music in the forest.
The gameplay video is the debut of The Haven level from “Fantasia: Music Evolved,” which is described by Disney as a seemingly cold and isolated forest where the music can make things come alive. This will clearly involve lots of wild arm gestures.
“Music Evolved” is a little different from your usual music game, offering–as we can see here–environmental interactions as well as gesture-based rhythm gameplay. For instance, the video shows how players can pet a snow beast at one point, although how this impacts the overall gameplay is unclear.
The Kinect-enabled “Fantasia: Music Evolved” is based on the 1940 animated musical from Walt Disney, with acts like Queen, Fun., and Kimbra joining classical composers as players can manipulate tracks from the game to affect environments inspired by the film. “Music Evolved” will be available on the Xbox 360 and Xbox One next year.
