Rock Band Blitz -- the new downloadable extension of the popular plastic instrument franchise -- will be released on PlayStation Network on August 28 and Xbox Live Arcade on August 29, developer Harmonix announced this week. Unlike the previous entries, Rock Band Blitz does not utilize instrument controllers, instead letting you use a standard controller to play through a more arcade-oriented experience with power-ups and bright, colorful visuals.
The $15 game will launch with more than 20 brand new built-in tracks, though it's only the tip of the iceberg as all previous available tracks from the Rock Band series can be imported into the game; and for those who want to check out these new songs in Rock Band 3, they're also freely importable to that game. In addition to previously announced songs, Harmonix revealed that Avenged Sevenfold's "So Far Away," Fun's "We Are Young (ft. Janelle Monae)", Kool & The Gang's "Jungle Boogie," and My Chemical Romance's "Sing" are all part of the game.
