4 Quick Steps to Creating Your Own KickBeat Track


Upcoming PS3 and Vita rhythm kung fu fighting game KickBeat will launch with 18 licensed tracks. Those should be enough to keep you busy during the single-player campaign, but the real fun will begin once you dig into your personal music library and begin importing your favorite tunes into the game.

Zen Studios today explains and demonstrates how the game’s track generator tool works. There are four easy steps to follow:

1. Select a track from your music library on your PS Vita or PlayStation 3.
2. Find the rhythm by tapping the Triangle button along to the beat of the track.
3. Once you find the beat, continue tapping the Triangle button to set the beat.
4. The Track Generator will check the rhythm to ensure the beat is correct.

That’s all it’ll take to generate a custom track. See, easy. Still not convinced? Here’s a new trailer showing how the system works.

Available September 3rd as part of Sony’s PlayStation Vita Summer Select PSN promotional event, KickBeat will be a $9.99 cross-buy title for PS3 and Vita. Check out our interview with Zen Studios from last year to learn more about the game.
