Fantasia: Music Evolved release date set for October

Now with more Depeche Mode.

Harmonix's Kinect-exclusive music game Fantasia: Music Evolved is due for a worldwide launch on 21st October for Xbox One and Xbox 360, the developer has announced.

The motion-based rhythm game will include over 30 songs, with the most recently announced including Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence, The Who's The Real Me, Police's Message in a Bottle, Drake's Take Care, MIA's Galang, and Tchaikovsky's holiday classic The Nutcracker Medley.

Now if only Disney would awkwardly merge its brand with Joy Division again.

I took a look at Fantasia earlier this spring at GDC, where I was struck by how much Harmonix captured the spirit of Walt Disney's 1940 film. "Just as Fantasia represented Disney at its most experimental, it's only fitting that Harmonix's Kinect-based offering is equally out there," I wrote in my Fantasia: Music Evolved preview. "At a distance it looks like the world's most abstract workout regime, but go with it anyway. You just might discover an all new, most excellent way to rock out to Queen."
