Watch: Live Your Air Guitar Dreams With Air Guitar Warrior

Why look like a real guitar player with games like Rocksmith or even a fake rock star with Rock Band when you can play some air guitar? Virtual Air Guitar Company has announced that it’s bringing Air Guitar Warrior to Xbox One via the ID@Xbox self-publishing program. The game will obviously be a Kinect-based game; otherwise, you’d just look silly. You can look like an air guitar pro for $19.99.

Air Guitar Warrior mixes rhythm and shoot’em up genres as players will wield air guitars that double as weapons on a quest to find a legendary sword-guitar and challenge Heavy Metal Zeus at the top of the Temple of the Rock Gods.

Here’s what Aki Kanerva, Founder and Lead Designer at Virtual Air Guitar Company, had to say about this new game:

With Air Guitar Warrior, we wanted to really push the rock attitude—Air guitars that shoot fire, ice and lightning, dinosaur riding, flying flaming demon skulls… it’s going to melt your face!

Oddly enough, despite their company name, Air Guitar Warrior is their first project to feature air guitar playing. Kanerva adds:

It only took 11 years and 11 games, so it’s about time we cranked it up to 11 and made a game with air guitars in it!

Additionally, a full soundtrack has been created specifically for this game by musicians Mika Tyyskä / Mr. Fastfinger and Samppa Siurala. The game will let players be the lead guitar.

Tyyskä says:

I’ve been playing guitar for almost 30 years, it was very liberating to finally write music and riffs for air guitar! For each song, we wrote various lead guitar layers in different speeds: fast, faster, fasterer… no sweat or blood was spared when the most furious parts were laid down!

Siurala adds:

This project was a great combo – creating multiple different styles was an awesome challenge and at the same time it was a dive back to basics: solid rock!
