E3 video: Sound Shapes brings the beat to PlayStation Vita

June 06, 2012 | 2:12 p.m.

One of the stars of E3 is Sound Shapes, a new game that combines electronic music and an old-school side-scrolling game sensibility.

From developer Queasy Games, which made Everyday Shooter, Sound Shapes has PlayStation Vita players collect coins, each of which is assigned a specific sound sample. As the player progresses, the sounds come together to make electronic songs.

Several high-profile artists — including Jim Guthrie and Superbrothers (of Sword and Sworcery fame) and D.J. Deadmau5 — loaned their talents to the game, providing each level with a rich soundscape.

Sound Shapes is expected to hit stores this year. In the meantime, Hero Complex got its hands on the game. Check it out in the video above, and see the trailer here.
