Not sure strumming a guitar to run works? Tecmo plans to release a demo too. When it was first announced, Tecmo said Fret Nice would be for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. Since it wasn’t mentioned in today’s announcement we asked Tecmo about the Xbox 360 version. A representative replied, “Yes. It will be coming to XBLA soon as well.” Unfortunately, we don’t have a set release date.
