Nintendo Power has the scoop on the latest in the Guitar Hero franchise, 'Warriors of Rock'.

Nintendo Power has the scoop on the latest in the Guitar Hero franchise, Warriors of Rock. According to Neversoft’s Brian Bright, Warriors of Rock will retain “all the cool features” from Guitar Hero 5, including the ability to play with any combination of instruments. This time around, however, the team strove to “hand-pick” the songs, which will focus on “guitar-centric rock ‘n’ roll” as Bright explained that “so many more people play Guitar Hero on guitar than any other instrument.”

Picking up on the rock focus, the game’s story and aesthetics revolve around heavy metal. Bright mentioned being inspired by heavy metal album covers “with rivers of chrome and guys on horses with bat wings and stuff.” In fact, the game’s quest mode is narrated by Gene Simmons and tells the story of the struggle between “the Beast” and “the demigod of rock.” Said demigod is defeated, so it’s up to players to find the demigod’s legendary guitar and amass “an army of warriors to be able to defeat the beast.”
