Harmonix music game guru Matthew Nordhaus was recently interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter to discuss the future of the wildly popular Rock Band series since the company is no longer owned by MTV. The group is gearing up to release their first self-published game entitled Rock Band Blitz, which will be a rhythm based game that can connect seamlessly with previous Rock Band titles, allowing users to add to the downloadable games 20 brand new songs. Additionally, the weekly DLC updates that Harmonix releases will be compatible with Blitz.
The full interview can be seen at the link above and gameplay can be seen below. From what I can tell, it seems the rhythm needs to be kept with the trigger buttons on the controller and that jumping around is simply done with either the thumbstick or the D-pad.
