Harmonix has been a pioneer of interactive music gaming for nearly 25 years, having created titles like Frequency and Amplitude as well as genre-defining, breakout hits like Rock Band and Dance Central™. With FUSER, Harmonix will once again completely revolutionize the music game genre by providing an immersive music sandbox in which players are challenged to perform and create custom mixes from some of music's biggest hits – no peripheral required.

"With FUSER, we are delivering the ultimate music fantasy as a game," said Steve Janiak, CEO, Harmonix. "Music today is an experience. It's not just people listening to albums any more – it's recording and sharing videos of you singing along to your favorite songs, watching your favorite bands play at festivals, and sharing hit music with your friends. FUSER puts players at the center of all that by letting you mix and share some of the biggest hits on your way to becoming a festival headliner."

Powered by Harmonix's proprietary technology, FUSER will allow players to seamlessly blend vocals, bass lines, and other instrumentation from a multitude of different music genres and artists to define their own unique sound through seamless, innovative gameplay. Players will also be able to share their creations socially, making their game performances available for watching online.

"When we first saw FUSER, we instantly knew it was something special," said Dr. Songyee Yoon, CEO, NCSOFT. "It takes the amazing developer pedigree that Harmonix has developed over decades and distills the essence of creating, listening to, and sharing music where every player can be their own star. We can't wait to see all the creations people will make."

With more than 100 songs to be included in the game, this is the first partial list of songs available for users to play with; attendees at PAX East in Boston will be the first to try a FUSER demo. The final track listing will feature songs from the world's top artists in pop, rap/hip-hop, R&B, dance, rock, country, Latin and Caribbean music.
