FANTASIA: MUSIC EVOLVED
Publisher Disney Interactive Developer Harmonix Format 360, Xbox One Origin US Release 2014
Staff at Harmonix didn’t take the news of a Kinect-free Xbox One too well. Nothing came closer to justifying the 360 version of the peripheral’s existence than the Dance Central games, and Harmonix’s chances of achieving similar success on Xbox One just took quite a dent. Business considerations aside, the great lingering concern is the soundtrack: the currently announced tracklist, full of well-known cuts from the likes of Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Queen and Elton John, hews a little too closely to the middle of the road. That lot can’t come cheap, either. Little wonder, then, that Harmonix was dismayed by the Kinect cut.
