Virtual Air Guitar Company has announced their newest game, Air Guitar Warrior. The game will launch as an Xbox One exclusive and is currently scheduled to release on March 29, 2017. Alongside the announcement we also get a new trailer and screenshots, which can be seen below.
The premise of Air Guitar Warrior is simple, part music game and part side scrolling shooter in which the player wields air guitars that also double as weapons. In Air Guitar Warrior you will embark on a quest in an attempt to locate the legendary sword-guitar and challenge Heavy Metal Zeus at the top of the Temple of the Rock Gods.
Aki Kanerva, Founder and Lead Designer at Virtual Air Guitar Company had this to say regarding the announcement of the new game:
“With Air Guitar Warrior, we wanted to really push the rock attitude. Air guitars that shoot fire, ice and lightning, dinosaur riding, flying flaming demon skulls… it’s going to melt your face!”
Additionally, Virtual Air Guitar Company has given us a quick breakdown of the features for their upcoming game:
