Rock on, Tommy

Guitar Hero Live is coming to Wii U later this year, and will use live action video segments to put you in the action. GameSpot has published a video which not only shows how this will work, but also gives a little glimpse of the new controller peripheral that will be launching alongside the game.

While the use of video gained a few skeptical comments when the game was first announced, this clip shows how well these segments integrate into the gameplay. It remains to be seen exactly how much variety these clips offer - if you end up seeing the same video over and over, it's more likely to destroy immersion than create it.

Have a watch of the clip and let us know what you think of this forthcoming resurrection of a gaming legend.
