Fantasia: Music Evolved brings a new dimension to Rhythm games
Logan Blosser posted this item on Jul 2, 2013

Harmonix, the creators of the hit rhythm games Rock Band and Dance Central, announced a new game at E3 that promises to bring a new dimension to rythmn games, in association with Disney. The game is called Fantasia: Music Evolved, based on the title of the 1940's movie Fantasia, by Disney, which combined music with an odd technicolor world to create an experience like no other - which Harmonix has tried to recreate in thier new game, and has done so expertly.

Fantasia: Music EvolvedFantasiaSo what does the game bring to the table that is not in any rhythm game previously? The game is split into two gamemodes; the first of which is more classic rhythm gameplay: you make movements much like conducting based on arrows on the screen, playing songs such as Bohemian Rhapsody or Some Nights. However, at different points you can choose different mixes, and if you can successfully complete some sections, you will be allowed to add a "Wah" effect to part of the solo or add a new melody which persists through the song, completely created by you. 

You also explore different worlds that are just as quirky and interesting as the worlds displayed in the movie, and you can create different medleys using places unlocked by the songs you play in conducting mode, creating tuens that persist in the world, learning magic and becoming a true sorcerer (You start the game off as Yen Sid's apprentice, much as Mickey in the iconic Sorcerer's Apprentice sequence in Fantasia, which served as a huge inspiration).

The game promises to inspire creativity in its players, and become an iconic game in the collection of rhythm games. It comes out in 2014 for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
