Fantasia: Music Evolved is Harmonix’s Next Project

Harmonix, creator of Guitar Hero and Rock Band is now working with Disney to bring you Fantasia: Music Evolved, a new Kinect music game inspired by Disney’s animated film of the same name.

The game is so far confirmed to be releasing in 2014 for only the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Chances of it being released for other platforms are said to be slim.

In Fantasia: Music Evolved players are tasked with performing and transforming songs in order to bring life to worlds created by the sorcerer Yen Sid. Using gestures unlock musical interactions which bring back music and life to the respected environment.

Each stage features a number of songs and the game is said to launch with tracks from more than 25 musicians. Tracks from each of these artists can be changed in real-time by simply using Kinect gestures. Players can mix songs, remix existing ones and even add layers of music via “magical manipulators.”

Fantasia: Music Evolved will support multiplayer but will only see to a two-player local-only mode.

Tracks featured in the game are so far confirmed to be the following:

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