After a long hiatus, plastic guitar controllers are back. Activision has announced Guitar Hero Live will be coming this fall to consoles and mobile (the $99 box will get you the guitar controller and a platform-specific game). It’s the first Guitar Hero title in over five years and will once again compete with Harmonix’s Rock Band, which is also coming out of retirement this year.
But this isn’t the same Guitar Hero as before. Developer FreeStyleGames, whose past work includes the unique DJ Hero series, has rethought huge swaths of the familiar Guitar Hero formula, and from what we’ve seen and played so far, it’s a legitimately exciting proposition.
