Technic Beat is an innovative and addictive music game for the PlayStation 2 that allows players to actually create, alter and dance on screen to their own music. Developed by Arika and featuring tunes from some of Namcos most popular games, Technic Beat is expected to release in late September 2004.
In Technic Beat, players listen to music represented in the game by radiating concentric rings of sound. Picking up the beat, they dance into the middle of the rings and try to catch the music. If successful, they achieve the power to manipulate the sound rings and create entirely new music. As players progress and gain skill they are rewarded with spectacular visual displays, bonuses, and power ups.
