If you're curious enough to give Disney's Fantasia: Music Evolved a go, ahead of its launch for Xbox One and Xbox 360 later this month, then you can sample it today. A demo of Harmonix's latest Kinect foray is available to download right now, offering several tracks to play from the selection of dozens you'll find in the full game.

The Fantasia: Music Evolved demo includes the game's 'Performance Mode', in which you'll be able to take the first steps as the new Sorcerer's Apprentice, under the tutelage of the one and only Yen Sid. You'll be guided through the rhythm motion gameplay, with Bach’s “Toccata and Fugue” and Lady Gaga’s “Applause” teaching you the basics, before getting to grips with music creation in 'Sound Sketcher' with one of five 'Composition Spells'. 

The demo also includes six tracks to play either solo or with another player in Fantasia's 2-player Multiplayer mode. The tracks included in the demo are:

  • Gorillaz - “Feel Good Inc.”
  • Imagine Dragons - “Radioactive”
  • Lady Gaga - “Applause”
  • Lorde - “Royals”
  • Mozart - “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”
  • Queen - “Bohemian Rhapsody”

Fantasia: Music Evolved will be coming to Xbox One and Xbox 360 on October 21st with over 30 tracks to choose from, spread across several genres including "contemporary pop, hip hop, rock, classical, and more". You can download the demo here, and you'll find our hands-on preview here.

  • Cant Find it
  • Yeah, I can't seem to find it for the XB1, just the 360. I'm considering it for the XB1 so I want to play the demo on XB1. Any word either way?
  • Huge Rock Band fan, would love to be able to support Harmonix but I'm not a huge kinect gamer and can't justify $60 on this. However, might pick up Dance Central at that easy price point, really hoping for a next gen Rock Band with a similar model, cheap game lots of DLC
  • wow rare we get a demo pre-release these days !!!!
  • @5 aye it is but think they had no choice with this one as SO many people said it looked stupid so think is a case of "here look its not stupid"
  • any idea on the xbox one version ???
  • Would have been a day 1 buy had they not put pop music into it. Now it's a no-buy.

  • Still no demo for XB1.
  • There's a bunch of classical music in the game, and that one Frozen song is a preorder bonus that'll probably be DLC later. Played this at PAX and it's super fun; everyone should give it a try.
  • Search for "Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved demo" and it'll show up on the XB1, if your using smartglass to find it it will be right at the bottom

  • @12 thank you kind sir
  • so, are there Disney songs on there? Or is it just basically a Kinect music game marketed by Disney?
  • There's classical music that was in Fantasia, but the only Disney song I saw was the Demi Lavato version of Let It Go. So, everyone hating on it because it's Disney.....stop. There's very, very little Disney influence on it. If you're hating on it because it doesn't have metal songs.....well, those wouldn't work very well in this game anyway. Pop songs sell, even if we hate them. Basically, if you don't like the pop DLC, don't buy it. I think the track list they've got in the actual game is a good mix, though. I played through the tracks earlier (at least up until it told me to buy the full version and stopped the songs early), and I think it's a lot of fun. The Kinect 2.0 seems to track a LOT better than the 360 Kinect does, and I saw very few errors. It didn't have any problems seeing me OR my 9 year old son when we were playing. If you hunt around in the Xbox Store, you can see the DLC that's coming up for it. There's also a digital bundle for the game and ALL the DLC for $89.99. Looking at the DLC, I probably won't be buying EVERY song, so I'll probably just get the $59.99 game.
  • The opposite of hating on it for me. If it had the Menzel version of Let It Go, plus stuff like Part Of Your World and Colors Of The Wind, I would've bought it straight away. No selling point for me without actually Disney songs. Thank for the info
