The rhythm action genre was something that absolutely blew up last generation and yet there’s barely a trace of it in this generation. Rock Band 4 and Guitar Hero Live came and went pretty quickly. Thumper didn’t make too much of a mark. The only rhythm game that has really got its hooks into me on Xbox One is the brilliant Aaero. Well, it looks as though the genre isn’t completely dead because, apart from an Aaero sequel on the way, Double Kick Heroes is coming to Xbox One. What’s more, it will be available through Xbox Game Pass on day one.
If you haven’t heard of Double Kick Heroes, you can check out a trailer and the official description of the game below –
Double Kick Heroes is an explosive metal rhythm game set in an apocalyptic world. Lead your band on a roadtrip through the wasteland! Blast zombies with your Gundillac and crush them with the power of Metal.
Shoot zombies by beating the keyboard the way you’d beat a drumset. Double Kicking is the name of a drumming technique to speed up the music. But it’s also the name of a deadly weapon you will have to master to survive. Grab your keyboard and let’s beat it to death!
