LOS ANGELES, ELECTRONIC ENTERTAINMENT EXPO – June 5, 2012 – Realta Entertainment revealed today the additions of legendary Artists Zakk Wylde and Nancy Wilson to the roster of “Rock Legends” for the upcoming videogame music title, BandFuse: Rock Legends.  These artists join Slash, the iconic Grammy-winning musician and former lead guitarist of Guns N’ Roses, who serves as the games master guitar instructor.  Jason Hook and Zoltan Bathory from the band Five Finger Death Punch will help players navigate through game features.  Multiple songs have also been added to the game’s roster. BandFuse: Rock Legends will be coming to game consoles early in 2013.

BandFuse: Rock Legends seamlessly connects real guitars, basses and microphones to game consoles, empowering players to jam to a huge selection of hits in a fun game environment. Players of all skill levels can tap into the rock experience by using the unique BandFuse: Rock Legends animated tablature (tabs) interface, which simplifies the learning process for novice musicians while allowing advanced musicians to perform songs as the artists intended.

Renowned musician Zakk Wylde will mentor players in the game’s career mode.  He has spent much of his career as the lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne, and is the founder of heavy metal band Black Label Society.  In 2006, Zakk was recognized at the Hollywood Rock Walk of Fame, featuring his handprints and signature, for his successful career as a musician and his contribution to the music industry.  Nancy Wilson is a multitalented artist who will also mentor players though various career levels.  She is a core member of the super group Heart that has sold more than 30-million records worldwide and had Top 10 albums on the Billboard Album Chart in the 1970’s, 80’s, 90’s, and most recently 2010.

I had to google zakkk wylde to gain any idea of who he was. I will not buy anything with anyone as repulsive as this person involved. What are the creators thinking? Guitarists such as Eric Clapton, Chet Atkins, Leona Boyd, SRV would be instantly purchased!

It might have something to with the fact that he was Ozzy's guitarist?

Say, did anybody realise that bandFuse uses Rock band Icons for its instruments in the menus? Look closely. They match! Wonder if harmonix will be angry about that…

That is REALLY sketchy… I wonder if that's just a placeholder icon, meant to not be serious, or if that's actually in the game. Either way, if I was Harmonix (or Fender, because Rock Band's guitarbass icons are trademarked by them), I'd be pissed.

[You can see them at 0:44 in that video, if nobody noticed]

I got to check this game out at E3. It still has some fine tuning to go through, but I've liked what I seen.

I'm looking forward to the setlist, to seeing musicians actually talk about their work in game, playing through the genre specific career modes, and if I remember right, I think they said that you could upload your playthough of songs with your guitar playing (no matter how bad it is) being played over the song audio.

One nice thing I saw is that songs in the menu will be labeled if they have drop tuning. I know I saw Drop-D and Drop-C listed.

Takesi, That is the truth. I would definitely buy it if you could flip it to oncoming. Otherwise, based on screen shots it looks convoluted and jumbled.

Let see… Barracuda… Jessica… Roundabout… May not be key reasons for purchase as I have these songs in "other" games… However they will make for great comparison points.

I do hope that BF has the option to "flip" the field, ala RS… Otherwise they might lose potential customers who are also RS players.

Am I the only one who thinks the UI is a little repulsive? It's too bad, since everything else about the game looks so damn amazing
