    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.

    The concept sounds interesting, but after seeing the gameplay video, I'm not too hyped.

    Get The Sugar Hill Gang's "Apache" in there and I will buy the Vita in a heartbeat.

    Come on, do it. Make my day.

    I dunno, I'll wait until there's more info.

    The trailer looked alright but I'd wait until it's more in-depth stuff. Seems like it'd be good for digital but I'm not sure I'd throw $40 on it as a retail release. Consider Zen Studios has done mostly digital releases, this does seem to lean towards a digital release.

    do it yourself?

    i knew this was going to be shown at E3, did not know what it was, but from what i have read, sounds awesome.

    don't have a Vita though.

    Edit: wait, he "fights" to "reclaim the music" is that right?
    the fuck was even going on in that trailer.

    This is also making me hard. Very few music games actually allow you to use your own music and end up whoring you on DLC.

    Kung Fu Fighting would be an appropriate song for this title as well.

    Seriously? Awesome. It looks like I'm going to have to jump on it, then.

    Probably something I'd play once or twice. Not into rhythm games much but it seems interesting.
