Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, the latest attempt at a music gaming sensation from the genre maestros at Harmonix, has received an official release date today. The Kinect-powered motion control rhythm game based on the classic animated Disney film Fantasia will be available October 21st on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Six new tunes have also been confirmed for the game’s soundtrack, including:

– Depeche Mode – “Enjoy the Silence”
– Drake – “Take Care” (ft. Rihanna)
– Tchaikovsky – “The Nutcracker Medley”
– Police – “Message in a Bottle”
– MIA – “Galang”
– The Who – “The Real Me”

So far that brings the count of revealed songs up to 23 of the more than 30 tracks slated to feature in the full game. Previously confirmed tracks include:

– AVICII – “Levels”
– David Bowie – “Ziggy Stardust”
– Antonin Dvorak – “Symphony No. 9 from the New World”

– Modest Mussorgsky – “Night on Bald Mountain”
– Queen – “Bohemian Rhapsody”
– White Stripes – “Seven Nation Army”
– Antonio Vivaldi – “The Four Seasons: Winter, 1st Movement”

Last but not least, a new trailer is grooving away on YouTube. I honestly can’t tell what the objective of the game is supposed to be — it just looks like random arm flailing to trigger different notes and beats to me. But I do know that the video has singing and dancing vegetables. Who doesn’t enjoy musical veggies?
