Gitaroo Man Announces A New World Tour
The king of the power chord cranks it up to 11 for his PSP return


Who knows where he’s been in the intervening years. Rehab? Struggling to get over the break up of Busted? Penning songs from a takeaway strewn Vegas hotel room? Fighting off the Gravillian family on another planet? None of that matters any more, now that the axe man is back and ready to rock.

With his unique collection of battle songs and his talents for blazing out shark shattering anthems, Gitaroo Man is tuned up and ready to hit the road. Gitaroo Man Lives! Makes clever use of the PSP’s analogue controls and includes brand new wi-fi games where two tunesmiths can either join forces or pit their talents against each other to see who is the ultimate string legend.

With a playlist worth blowing your speakers for and some of the most colourfully bizarre visuals on PSP, bus journeys will never be the same again.


  • Music is the weapon in this fabled rhythm game where you help beautiful loser U-1 transform into rock legend Gitaroo Man and find true love.
  • For the first time ever, share the spotlight in new Duet Mode while jamming to previously unreleased Gitaroo songs Metal Header and Toda Pasion!
  • Battle for rock supremacy in Vs. mode via wireless (ad hoc).
  • Includes all 10 colorful stages from the original including, “Flyin' to Your Heart”, “Bee Jam Blues”, and “Born to be Bone”.
  • Music styles range from Rock, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Latin and more!
  • Single Play, Vs. and Duet Play with three levels of difficulty.
  • Music by COIL, with visual design and illustrations by pop artist 326.
