Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. announced to Tuesday that over a dozen classic Jimi Hendrix songs will be coming to the BandFuse: Rock Legends video game and fans that attend the upcoming Experience Hendrix Tour will be able to play the game at the shows.

The new deal calls for 15 signature songs from the Jimi Hendrix catalogue tp be made available to players. The tracks will begin to roll out in January 2014 as downloadable content in the BandFuse: Rock Legends Music Store.

The Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. camp sent over these additional details: Later in 2014, Hendrix will be integrated into the game as a rock legend, which will include interviews with present day guitar greats talking about Jimi Hendrix's technique and experimental style paired with archival video footage from his illustrious career.

"Jimi was never afraid to go beyond the limitations of traditional guitar teachings, and when fans jump into BandFuse they will be amazed at how cool it is to learn to play guitar like Hendrix," said Janie L. Hendrix, President/CEO of Experience Hendrix L.L.C. "The game provides players with the ability to play his exact sound, capturing the fuzz, feedback and tones that made his style legendary."

These special event performances represent an ongoing tribute to the music and legacy of Jimi Hendrix. BandFuse: Rock Legends will have playable kiosks at each stop of the 20-city tour, giving attendees a hands-on experience. The tour features two of the in-game instructors from BandFuse: Rock Legends, metal legend Zakk Wylde and funk master Bootsy Collins.

"We are ecstatic to be working with the Jimi Hendrix team to bring his immensely explosive talent to BandFuse: Rock Legends," said Jeff Marshall, Director of Artist Relations, Realta Entertainment.
