Harmonix and Disney Announce Kinect Rhythm Game Fantasia: Music Evolved

Posted on June 4, 2013 AT 06:00am

Harmonix and Disney Interactive have come together to create motion-controlled music and rhythm game Fantasia: Music Evolved.

Inspired by Disney’s classic 1940 animated film Fantasia, Music Evolved sees players assuming the role of sorcerer Yen Sid’s apprentice, conducting music by way of gesture-based motion controls to strike timed note cues and remix music in real-time.

Harmonix’s latest will also include exploration-centric hubs in which players can interact with the environment, solve simple puzzles, and dynamically alter the music.

Fantasia: Music Evolved features tracks from over 25 artists, including electronic DJ AVICII, Bruno Mars, and Queen. So far, Harmonix has confirmed five artists and songs that will appear in Music Evolved:

  • AVICII–”Levels”
  • Bruno Mars–”Locked Out of Heaven”
  • Fun.–”Some Nights”
  • Kimbra–”Settle Down”
  • Queen–”Bohemian Rhapsody”

If you’re having as hard a time making sense of the game’s description as I had trying to put it into words, check out the Fantasia trailer embedded below (along with the screenshot gallery beneath that).

Fantasia: Music Evolved launches on Xbox 360 and the Xbox One in 2014. The title will be playable at this year’s E3 at Disney Interactive’s booth, #1001 in South Hall.
