Activision announces Guitar Hero 5, Band Hero and DJ Hero for fall

Activision continues to “exploit” its Guitar Hero franchise this year with three new full titles coming this autumn. The newly announced Guitar Hero 5 will offer “the ability to drop in and out of songs and change band members, instruments and difficulty levels on the fly.” The press release contains no other details regarding the game, but you can bet it’ll be pretty similar to Guitar Hero: World Tour.

Band Hero is the second of Activision’s Hero trifecta for this fall. Band Hero is completely separate from Guitar Hero. Except it’s very similar — it’s Activision’s attempt at a family-oriented Guitar Hero game, rated E10+, and will be facing off against Harmonix’s Lego Rock Bandlater this year. 

Finally, DJ Hero is something we’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about for a while. It will feature “diverse music genres including hip-hop, R&B, Motown, electronica and dance” and will include the turntable controller, images of which we posted earlier. Apparently the title “transforms players into DJs who rule the club scene by creating original mixes of popular songs and music from the world’s most exciting artists and DJs.”  What do you think about thsi new IP, are they too much?
