In the early 2000′s, rhythm action was one of the most popular genres in the video games industry. With titles such as Dancing Stage, Britney’s Dance Beat and Parappa The Rapper, it seemed like they were here to stay. As all trends tend to do, it became less popular until the advent of motion controlled gaming took it’s place in the limelight. Game developer Harmonix is looking to bring back the forgotten genre by resurrecting Amplitude, one of their most popular titles that was released on the PlayStation 2 in 2003.
The new version of the game is being funded through KickStarter, with a 2015 release date promised for both PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Anyone who pledges for a copy of the game will receive both versions, because they have opted to include it within Sony’s Cross Buy promotion. To see how you play Amplitude, and what the new edition of the franchise will offer, you can watch the KickStarter trailer that has been embedded below.
