Harmonix has released a brand new trailer for the reboot of one of its earliest titles, Amplitude. The developers are known for their plastic peripheral type music games like Rock Band and Guitar Hero, two titles which are rumoured to be making a return this year. But not many remember the studio’s first PlayStation 2 exclusive titles, namely Frequency and Amplitude, the latter of which will be getting a reboot thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign.

The new Amplitude game will feature similar gameplay reminiscent of the original PS2 title with minor changes and better graphics. While Rock Band lets players take control of a single instrument, Amplitude will force them to manage an entire soundscape. So players will have to switch tracks on the board, which will change the instrument they will be controlling, though to master the game they will have to ace every instrument. The game will not include a plastic instrument, so players will have to use the regular controller.

Unlike much of Harmonix’s latest games, Amplitude featured more techno and electro tracks which are likely to make a comeback in the reboot. Players can also expect some of the game’s original soundtracks to be featured in the reboot alongside the new tracks.

Amplitude will be coming out sometime this year for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. You can pre-order your copy of the game here. Gamers can choose between the regular game, soundtrack, art book and more. In the meantime, you can check out the new Amplitude trailer below:
