Link: Harmonix announces Beatles game

Details from Gamasutra. With all the iconic design associated with the Beatles — the Yellow Submarine movie, the Sgt. Pepper concept, the B&W of “A Hard Day’s Night” or the Bond-spoof “Help!”– this could be as fascinating visually as much as anything else. Maybe “Rock Band” meets “Kingdom Hearts”, where the different Beatles eras and concepts serve as the various lands?

Since Harmonix is made up of musicians, it’s safe to assume it won’t suck like the Sgt. Pepper movie. Worst case, it’s Across the Universe, which sits unwatched in my DVR…

BTW, with rumor mongers saying for years that a deal for Beatles on iTunes was close, who would have thought that we’d see them in a game before being on iTunes or one of its rivals?
