Harmonix may have had to take the concept to Kickstarter, but a true PlayStation classic is making a comeback next year. Amplitude may not have sold gangbusters, but it wheedled its way into the hearts and minds of Sony fans on the PlayStation 2 – and this forthcoming PlayStation 4 reboot is sure to bring back a few fond memories.
While this footage is still very much pre-alpha – evidenced by the dodgy fonts and simplistic note patterns – the core tenets of the series appear to be very much intact. Indeed, there’s lane switching galore in this early gameplay clip, as well as a brief hint at the title’s chaotic multiplayer mode. Personally, we’re just pleased to hear the inclusion of some phat bass lines.
