Guitar Hero: Van Halen arrives in Europe

Activision's latest Guitar Hero title - Guitar Hero: Van Halen - was released in the United States before Christmas, but - for reasons entirely unclear to us - its European release was delayed until 19 February. It's finally here now, though, so you can go pick it up from your favourite videogame shop.

As previously reported, the game has 25 of Van Halen's biggest songs, three of Eddie Van Halen's guitar solos, and a big pile of other bands that have been "inspired" by Van Halen, including Lenny Kravitz, Weezer, Foreigner, Queen and Blink-182. It's got all the other bells and whistles you'd expect from a Guitar Hero game - various multiplayer modes, track composition etc.

Activision's SVP of Guitar Hero, Will Kassoy, said: "Guitar Hero Van Halen offers music fans of all generations the chance to experience one of the most renowned and celebrated bands in the world in an entirely unique way. Eddie Van Halen is a guitar legend and this game will give Guitar Hero fans a new appreciation for his talents, while also providing hours of entertainment".

It's out now on Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. It'll set you back somewhere between £35 and £50, depending on where you buy it from.
