Rock Band Blitz will launch on PSN on August 27 and XBLA on August 28 for 1200 Microsoft Points on the latter, Harmonix has announced.

The game differs from most others in the popular franchise in that it is an arcade title wherein the player uses a standard controller to match beats and obtain power-ups.

Harmonix also revealed four more songs on the game's track list: Kool & The Gang's "Jungle Boogie," "We Are Young" by Fun, "Sing" by My Chemical Romance, and Avenged Sevenfold's "So Far Away".

These four join a line-up which includes Barenaked Ladies’ “One Week”, Rick Springfield’s “Jessie’s Girl”, as well as songs from Blink 182 and Fall Out Boy.

Fortunately, the game is able to import and use any existing Rock Band purchases a player has made, so sick bags won’t need to be included as day one DLC.
