Harmonix is bringing Amplitude back, Kickstarter is live

Planned for PS3 and PS4

Surely you remember PS2 beat-matching games Frequency and Amplitude. Classics, right? Harmonix told us that they've been waiting to create a new title in the series, and they're announcing a Kickstarter today to do just that. They're hoping to fund a new version of Amplitude for PS3 and PS4.

In the decade or so since these games, Harmonix has become a bit of a big deal with Rock Band, Dance Central, and others. They're wanting to get back to basics, but they hope to be able to plug in some of the creative power they've built up over the years for this new Amplitude. They'll also plug into their mastery of beat-matching that they've learned during Rock Band's development, giving them better control over timing windows.

Expect "an updated soundtrack, incredible visuals, and fine-tuned controls" added to the classic formula, as well single and local multiplayer modes. Oh, and crazy difficulty -- that'll be back. Harmonix says that they are aiming for 60 frames per second on PS3 and PS4. Think of this as the HD, upgraded version of the classic, one that could become a full sequel depending on your contribution and feedback. 

Be sure to check out the single concept image in our gallery below.
