Alliance could produce an interesting end product
Activision has announced that they have formed an alliance with Aerosmith to work on the new upcoming Guitar Hero title to be called Guitar Hero: Aerosmith. Obviously, the new Guitar Hero: Aerosmith title will be centered on the music of the Grammy winning career of one of America’s true hard rock greats.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will feature about 30 songs from the extensive Aerosmith catalog. In addition to songs from Aerosmith, the game will also feature songs from bands that have opened for the band over the years. The goal of the title is to put the player in the role of being part of the band taking center stage with Steven Tyler and Joe Perry.
Guitar Hero: Aerosmith will be developed by Neversoft Entertainment for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Wii version will be developed by Vicarious Visions, while the PlayStation 2 version will be handled by Budcat. Steven Tyler and Joe Perry will be actively involved in the development of the game, including being part of motion capture sessions in order to capture the unique Aerosmith moves necessary to recreate the Aerosmith experience. The game is expected to arrive in stores this summer.
