Heavy metal icons Metallica have let the black cat out of the bag. Guitar Hero: Metallica is coming to North America March 29th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and the rest of the world sometime in May. The PS2 and Wii versions are coming this Spring, "also most likely in early May," according to the band's website.

For those who need a little reminder, this is Guitar Hero ... with Metallica. Oh, and there's "expert-plus" drums. The game includes 28 songs from the group's discography, as well as tracks from
Alice in Chains, the Foo Fighters, Slayer, Machine Head, and Queen (as in Freddie Mercury, not of the Stone Age variety). We've placed the trailer after the break.

[Thanks Nicolo!]
