Zo Mode is pleased to announce that
it is the developer of Rock Revolution for Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 as
recently announced by publisher Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., scheduled
for release in fall 2008.
Developed in close collaboration
with Konami, the original innovators of the rhythm genre, Rock Revolution builds
on the core game-play pioneered in games such as DrumMania and Guitar Freaks to
provide an experience that will appeal to music fans everywhere. Release your
inner rockstar or allow your friends the privilege of picking up an axe or
pounding the skins with you to 40 mind bending rock and roll tracks in Rock
Revolution. Unleash your creative juices in the Jam Mode where you can create
your own music in a state of the art multi-track studio! This is the musical
revolution the world has been waiting for. With its most realistic drumming
peripheral, Rock Revolution is set to expand the rhythm genre in new ways.
A key innovation is Rock
Revolution’s Jam Mode, an all new feature allowing players to create their own
music and record it using up to eight tracks. With a wealth of different guitar,
bass and drum sounds to choose from, and a suite of powerful tools on offer, Jam
Mode allows gamers to start making their own music quickly and easily regardless
of their level of musical ability.
Another unique element is the Career
Mode which includes a variety of unique gameplay challenges that expand on the
standard song performance. A further innovation in Gig events allows players to
improvise their own drum and guitar solos over their favorite rock tracks.

Studio Head Ed Daly says: “We are
delighted to be working with Konami and the BEMANI team who invented the genre.
In addition to introducing a number of genre defining features that will soon be
announced, we are also working hard to deliver a drumming experience balanced so
that beginners, experts and everyone in between can have a blast rocking out to
their favorite tracks”.
