Disney Interactive and Harmonix announced Monday some of the new tracks that are coming to “Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved” for the Xbox One and Xbox 360. The Kinect powered music game has added songs from Peter Gabriel, Gorillaz, Cee Lo Green, Elton John and even the legendary Mozart to the mix.
The Peter Gabriel love anthem “In Your Eyes” will be joined by Gorillaz “Feel Good Inc.” and Cee Lo Greens’ “Forget You”. Elton John’s “Rocket Man” will also be featured along with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s classic “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik” according to Harmonix.
These five music tracks will be join more than 25 other contemporary hits, classic rock, classical music, hip-hop songs and more in the “Disney Fantasia” inspired video game. Other artists announced so far include Lorde, David Bowie, Bruno Mars, Queen, Anonio Vivaldi, Nicki Minaj and Antonin Dvorak among others.
Inspired by Walt Disney’s 1940 animated film “Fantasia”, “Music Evolved” puts players in the role a new apprentice to the sorcerer, Yen Sid. Players must animate the worlds that the sorcerer has created by moving in rhythm with music much like an orchestra conductor. This not only brings life to the different levels but also unlocks new gestures that can change the elements of the musical composition such as adding brass overlays.
Unlike previous Harmonix games, “Fantasia: Music Evolved” will not score or grade the player based on their performance per se. Instead, the game will offer unlocks of some musical elements that can be brought to the overworld. Additionally, players can collect magic energy during play and spend the energy to unlock other items that can be brought into levels.
“Fantasia: Music Evolved” is currently scheduled to be released sometime in 2014. No official date has been set yet but the number of tracks announced has now passed the halfway mark and is sitting at 17 total musical pieces for the game.
