Taylor Swift lends her likeness and sound to the game Band Hero due out this November just in time for Christmas.
Taylor Swift’s smash hits ” Love Story”, “You Belong With Me” and “Picture to Burn” are all going to be included on the fall release of Band Hero. From the makers of Guitar Hero, Band Hero encourages people to pick up an instrument and play either as, or alongside their favorite artists in the game, which Taylor is a big fan of!
“Anything that encourages people to pick up an instrument and play, I’m fully behind. And, I’m really excited about Band Hero, because not only are fans getting to play my songs, but I’m actually in the game,” said Swift. “There are so many awesome things that go into being in Band Hero, like getting to customize my band to look like my touring band, and it’s so cool for people to feel like they are experiencing one of my concerts. This is one of the closest things out there to going to see me perform!”
Taylor spent quite a bit of time with the creators of the game having her signature moves and sound fully broken down and built into the game so players can get the full Taylor Swift experience.
“Taylor Swift’s impressive rise to the top of multiple music genres, along with the broad appeal of her songs, makes her a great example of the type of experience we are bringing to music fans with Band Hero,” said Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Guitar Hero. “We’re thrilled to announce her as the very first of several playable in-game artists and showcase her many talents in our game.”Other Band Hero artists include No Doubt, All American Rejects, The Jackson 5, and Lily Allen.Country Music Photo Gallery
