Guitar Hero is returning to consoles this year with a new look and a new peripheral.

Guitar Hero Live is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Wii U, and mobile, and will be US$100 including a controller.

The mobile app will offer the same experience as consoles, with the controller connecting via Bluetooth.

The new controller has two rows of three buttons rather than a single row of five, so the game is not backwards compatible with old instruments or the music from previous games.

The cartoon avatar look of the previous games has been replaced by footage of actors, and the game is played from a first-person perspective.

There is a new mode called Guitar Hero TV, which will offer music videos you can play along with – against other players if you like.

Bands already confirmed for the game include: The Black Keys, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Gary Clark, Jr., Green Day, Ed Sheeran, The War on Drugs, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Pierce the Veil, and Blitz Kids.

The game is in development at UK studio FreeStyle Games (DJ Hero).

More information has been promised at E3, and the game is expected to launch in spring.
