The musical combat game, KickBeat, has been warming up since it was first announced back in May 2012, but Zen Studios is finally ready to bring their latest downloadable game to the dance floor/combat arena on September 3. In addition to the Vita version, Zen will release a PS3 version as well, and with Cross-Buy, a single purchase will unlock both versions.
KickBeat relies on fully 3D animated characters for action cues, rather than bars, arrows, and button icons used by other rhythm titles. Enemy attacks are cued to the beat of songs from artists like Marilyn Manson, Papa Roach, and Rob Zombie. If those artists don't satisfy your musical tastes, Zen Studios also told the PlayStation.Blog that players will be able to use their own music in the game.
