Guitar Hero World Tour kit surfaces

Poodle rock wigs at the ready – all the new kit for Guitar Hero World Tour has finally made it into the wild. And man are we ready to rock our f

The new axe is bigger than the previous model, and now totes a touchpad on the neck, letting you grind out solos, alter notes by sliding your hand up and down and even play slap bass if you want. Just think that dude who played on Paul Simon’s Graceland and you get the picture.

The drum kit, which we’ve already caught a glimpse of, has also been officially outed. You get three pressure sensitive pads, two cymbals and a bass drum. Basically, all you need to become this generation's Bonzo.

Word on the music creator software has also filtered out, with word reaching us that you’ll be able to truly let rip and overdub tracks and share your offerings with the world.

The game itself is due to drop this autumn. If you can’t wait that long, you can always snag Guitar Hero: On Tour and rock out on the bus ‘til then.
