Zen Studios has released a gameplay movie from KickBeat an experimental rhythm game featuring fully 3D characters and combat and high-energy music. The game combines beat-matching mechanics with an acrobatic style of martial arts, turning every song into a raucous battle. The game also features a music analyzer that allows players to create new tracks from their own music libraries.
The Kickbeat soundtrack is comprised of licensed tracks from a diverse lineup of artists ranging from well-known bands such as Pendulum and Marilyn Manson, to indie pioneers Celldweller and Blue Stahli, to hidden talents like electronic music producer Voicians and Taiwanese rapper Shen Yi.
KickBeat is set to be available this fall on PlayStation Vita.
