Five Reasons We’re Excited for Fantasia: Music Evolved

One of the most enjoyable things about showing friends your Xbox One is giving them a look at something they’ve never seen before. Fantasia: Music Evolved is that never-before-seen thing. It’s a bright, colorful, musical, multiplayer, rhythm party game experience we’re really excited for. And here’s why:

It’s a unique Kinect experience.

Fantasia: Music Evolved is a completely new way to play a video game. Using the power of Kinect, players embody the character and spirit of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice from the 1940 Disney classic Fantasia. Believe us when we say you’ve never experienced a game quite like this before.

The set list is freaking amazing.

Pop icons like Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, and Lorde join up with indie sensations Fun, Kimbra, and The Flaming Lips… who meet up with classical gods Mozart, Tchaikovsky, and Bach. And that only scratches the surface. If this game’s soundtrack was your phone’s playlist, you would have the best taste ever.

A new party game… finally!

It’s been a while since a new party game IP has come around, and we’re really excited about it. When it comes to music-based party games, Fantasia: Music Evolved developer Harmonix’s track record is flawless. They pretty much defined the genre, so it’s exciting to see a new game from this team.

Even the hub worlds are awesome.

The hub realms in Fantasia: Music Evolved are where the story happens. As you play more songs and explore new areas, you transform the hub realms from drab, lifeless zones into vibrant, music-filled environments. The art and color and music combine to make some incredible audio visual art onscreen.

As soon as you play it, you’ll get it.

We can keep telling you how awesome Fantasia: Music Evolved is, and we can even show you video of it – but because this game is so unique and tactile, you really have to play it to fully appreciate its beauty and depth. Five out of five rhythm game doctors recommend doing so as soon as possible.

Fantasia: Music Evolved hits Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 21, just in time for any and all holiday parties you might have!
