As we were promised yesterday, Harmonix has announced Fantasia: Music Evolved, and brand new “musical motion video game”. Fantasia is said to be inspired by Disney’s classic animated film by the same name, first released in 1940, and is in development for the Xbox One and Xbox 360 with Kinect.

The game casts players as the new apprentice of sorcerer Yen Sid, who send them “on an interactive and immersive motion-controlled journey through worlds of music and magic.”

With controller-free gameply, Fantasia will let gamers to control the way the music flow “in exciting and surprising new ways”.  This can be done by adding new layers of sound or simply switching between the original recording and new remixed versions of each music track.

The new incarnation won’t feature classical masterpieces like the original film, but instead will include tracks by more contemporary musicains like AVICII, Queen, Fun and Kimbra. “Music Evolved” indeed…

Fantasia: Music Evolved will be playable at Disney’s booth at E3 this year, so expect our hands-on impressions soon enough. Below you’ll find the game’s reveal trailer and first screenshots.
