Rock Band Breaks Out The Beatles in September!

|

Fans of the Fabs now know that the Beatles catalog is going to be digitally remastered and placed in stores this September, 9/9/09 to be exact. From “I Should Have Known Better” to “Carry That Weight,” all those jewels are going to gleam.

But 9/9/09 is big – make that massive – in the gaming world, too. The Beatles: Rock Band will be released that day. It’s the first time that rock’s most influential songbook has been applied to a game. The opportunity to grab an instrument and knock out everything from “I Feel Fine” to “Get Back” is going blow a lot of minds. Paul, Ringo, Yoko Ono, and Olivia Harrison helped tell the world at the E3 confab last week. As you can see from above, VH1 News was there.

Perhaps the coolest part about the game is its authenticity. The instruments are superb replicas of the signature basses and guitars the band played. The “venues” that participants rock out in are the ones the Beatles actually played, from the Cavern Club to Shea Stadium.

We’ll deliver more Beatles: Rock Band news as it’s announced. CHECK A GAMEPLAY TRAILER
