Last month we brought you news of a contest for XSEED Game's upcoming title Orgarhythm, but without any news of the game's release outside of a general Fall timeframe. The publisher has now announced the finalized release date and price for the title and its closer than you'd think.
Orgarhythm is a unique title that combines the strategic elements of an RTS game with the speed and coordination of a music rhythm game. Troops, formations, and temporary enhancements are each assigned through rhythmic button presses on the PlayStation Vita's touchscreen, which level-up your characters when performed successfully, and level them down when presses are mistimed. Playing as the God of Light, players will battle the forces of the God of Darkness by guiding elemental soldiers and issuing rhythm-based attacks synced to a hypnotic mix of rock, club, and tribal music. In the game, rhythm is a weapon and different attacks occur on different beats, making the game's catchy soundtrack dynamic to user input.
Orgarhythm will be released exclusively on PlayStation Network as a digital download for $29.99 on October 23.
