New Details and Videos Released for Air Guitar Warrior

It was announced by Virtual Air Guitar Company, the release of new material and details for Air Guitar Warrior for Kinect, part music game and part scrolling shooter. In addition to rocking out and shooting bad guys while riding a dinosaur, viking ship or flaming meteor, players will be able to control the music itself.

Check out the first, second and third trailers of Air Guitar Warrior, showcasing the games’ features:

“The guitar fires when the player strums with the right hand, with different fire modes depending on the speed of strumming. Moving the left hand along the guitar neck changes between rhythm and lead guitar. Advancing in the game unlocks bend power, where the player can bend backwards to unleash destructive rapid fire.

The lead guitar in the soundtrack responds to each of these 5 fire modes. The creators of the soundtrack, Mika Tyyskä / Mr. Fastfinger and Samppa Siurala, recorded multiple variations of the lead guitar for every track.

“You’re not just playing along, you’re in control of the music as much as you’re in control of the game,” says Aki Kanerva, Founder and Lead Designer at Virtual Air Guitar Company. “You’re doing two things at the same time, but the goal is the same: to be awesome.”
