KickBeat, what's shown to be a "rhythm brawler" by Zen Studios, has been announced for the Playstation Vita.
A trailer (available at the link) shows a rhythm-based brawling game where players take on multiple enemies and chain their moves with the rhythm of the songs. There also won't be any visual cues or on-screen prompts to pull off beat-based beatings, instead you'll be free to chain your own attacks.
Most notable about KickBeat is its licensed music. While no songs were released, several artists were listed. Multi-instrumentalist Celldweller (also known for doing the Dead Rising 2 boss battle songs), similar mutli-instrumentalist Blue Stahli, drum and bass band Pendulum, metal singer Marilyn Manson, and many more were listed to be lending songs to the title.
No release date or whether this will be a physical or digital title was announced.
