In the latest issue of Nintendo Power magazine Neversoft’s Brian Bright explains that Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will focus on “shredding” rock and roll, apparently at the expense of a broader range of musical styles.
Bright also revealed that Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock will feature a story-driven single-player mode narrated by Gene Simmons of Kiss fame. The story reportedly revolves around a conflict between the gods of rock ‘n roll. “The Beast defeats the demigod of rock and the demigod of rock is entombed in stone and his legendary guitar is banished,” said Bright. “[The guitar] is the source of his power. And so you are going through and assembling an army of warriors to be able to defeat the beast. Along the way, you’ll have to recover the legendary guitar.”
Sounds a bit Tenacious D/Brutal Legend if you ask me.
