Put your guitars to use with Fret Nice this week

Sick of just using your guitar controllers to play Rock Band and/or Guitar Hero? Look no further than Tecmo’s platformer, Fret Nice, due to hit the North American PSN store this week.

Fret Nice will also hit the European store at a later date, but for now, North Americans can use the power of rock to help the Vibrant Chordbusters defeat the Hair Bängers (note the totally metal umlaut). The game has a quirky and unique art style, and looks to be a weird experience all-round. The title features online leaderboards and character customisation, with unlockable items and instruments.

Details are scant on how it actually plays. Apparently, Riff Combos you play with the guitar are in tune with the stage’s background music, meaning you can jam with the music, and the notes you need to play in combat depend on the eyes and tentacles of your enemies.

The game’s website also displays the Xbox Live Arcade logo, but no release date has been provided. When made available, it will join the indie shooter Battle Beat (which has a free demo!) on the service.
