Amplitude blends rhythm gaming with sci-fi spaceship action, and it's heading to PlayStation 4 on January 5th, for $20 via the PlayStation Store. This is the new, Kickstarted version of Harmonix's beloved 2002 PlayStation 2 franchise -- Amplitude raised $844,127 on Kickstarter in 2014, partially because the crowdfunding cards were stacked in its favor.

The PS4 version of Amplitude includes a single-player campaign, plus competitive and cooperative local multiplayer modes. The soundtrack has more than 30 songs, featuring well-known gaming composers Danny Baranowsky (Super Meat Boy), C418 (Minecraft), Darren Korb (Transistor) and Jim Guthrie (Indie Game: The Movie), plus other studios and artists, such as Insomniac Games and Freezepop.

Anyone who pledged more than $40 to Amplitude's Kickstarter will get the game two weeks early, on December 23rd. There's no word on a PS3 launch date so far.
