Japanese Bands to Invade Rocksmith 2014

By Michelle Balsan, 5 years ago
While much of the rhythm game industry has faded away, Ubisoft's Rocksmith has continued to move forward, not only continuing to release DLC, but also revealing that a new edition of the game, the aptly named Rocksmith 2014 Edition, was in the works. Since that reveal, we've learned a little bit about what is on the tracklist, including tracks by Aerosmith, The Smashing Pumpkins, and a Japanese band called B'z.

Ubisoft has now revealed that B'z won't be alone in representing the land of the rising sun in Rocksmith, as several other songs from Japanese bands will be available as DLC. This information comes from Gamer, a Japanese gaming site, and was run through a translator, and then had my limited knowledge of Japanese applied, so apologies in advance if we dropped a name. If so, just let us know in the comments so we can apply corrections.

Here's the DLC announced for the game:

ACIDMAN - "New World"
9mm Parabellum Bullet - "New Light"
9mm Parabellum Bullet - "Punishment"
Golden Bomber - "Earphone"
Golden Bomber - "Death Mental"
Golden Bomber - "Memeshikute"
Kazuyoshi Saito - "Yasashiku Naritai (I want to be Tender)"
Straightener - "ROCKSTEADY"
Straightener - "From Noon 'til Dawn"
The Birthday - "Stupid"
B'z - "Easy Come, Easy GO!"
B'z - "Juice"
B'z - "Giri Giri Chop"
Tomoyasu Hotei - "Bambina"
Tomoyasu Hotei - "Thrill"
Tomoyasu Hotai - "Battle Without Honor or Humanity"
RIZE - "Paradox"
One OK Rock - "Liar"
One OK Rock - "No Scared"
While Rocksmith 2014 is due to be released in October, no set schedule has been made available for these DLC releases. We'll be sure to update you with that information as it comes available!
