‘Kickbeat’ combines kung fu and your music collection

By 05.24.12

The Vita has different problems than the Kinect, but the issue for both is the same: awesome hardware, limp software. There’s a chance that kung fu might aid Microsoft’s motion sensing device, but what about Sony’s portable? Kickbeat certainly looks like it has the potential.

From the makers of Zen Pinball comes a martial arts beat ’em up that’s entirely driven by music, a concept that the trailer above somewhat gets across. Details can be found via the PlayStation Blog, which paints a mighty enticing picture.

But here’s the best part: you’ll be able to use your own music collection in the game. Now, we’re talking. More music games need to let you use the music you want to hear! Just forget the fact that putting your own mp3s is somewhat of a pain, at least on a Mac.

No word yet on the release date; let’s just hope the Vita is around long enough for the game’s completion.
