When the concert ticket, the downloaded album and the official t-shirt aren't enough, there is the official video game of the band. Why play Linkin Park's video game? It is for the fans.
The trailer for Linkin Park: 8-Bit Rebellion title shows a side-scroller, a throwback to the run-right-and-punch-the-guy brawlers of Double Dragon and River City Ransom of times past. Kotaku played the game yesterday on an iPod Touch (it is also coming to iPhones), and it is indeed kind of like that. Customize a character's hairstyle, face and outfit, then bring them to several districts of a digital city, questing to repel the soul-crushing forces of the PixxelKorp group while collecting six pieces of what will comprise, by game's end, a game-exclusive Linkin Park track. The game is set to a soundtrack of Linkin Park songs transformed into 8-bit sounding retro tunes.
