Rock Band 3 to include keyboards

May 25, 2010

When the Green Day: Rock Band demo was released today, it carried with it a surprising tidbit about the next Rock Band game, Rock Band 3.

The last screen you see when exiting the demo is a teaser page for the upcoming Rock Band 3. This page shows the trademark icons of the Rock Band series in a line next to each other: guitar, drums, bass, three part vocals, and keyboard. Wait, keyboard? That’s right, it appears that Rock Band 3 will feature a keyboard as yet another instrument for your repertoire.

Rumors have swirled for years regarding the introduction of a keyboard to either Guitar Hero or Rock Band, but this is the first confirmation of such an addition to either series. So, keyboard enthusiasts, crack your fingers and get ready to rock.
