PAWTUCKET, R.I. (June 8, 2017) – Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) today revealed ten new songs and Party Mode, a new way to play the upcoming music mixing game DROPMIX™ from Hasbro and video game developer Harmonix Music Systems, Inc. First announced in March, the DROPMIX game features multiple game modes, including Clash Mode and Party Mode that allows players to create unique mixes of songs by playing cards on a game board connected to a mobile app. The DROPMIX game will be available in Fall 2017.
Unlike Clash Mode, which pits two teams against each other as they battle to master the mix, players in Party Mode work together to quickly fulfill crowd requests coming from the DROPMIX app. Playing together, friends will create an ever-changing stream of surprising music mixes – livening up any get together with a fun and unexpected soundtrack.
“The DROPMIX game featuring Clash Mode and Party Mode offers fans either a competitive or collaborative music mixing experience with friends,” said Samantha Lomow, senior vice president of Hasbro Brands. “The multiple modes and all-star line-up of artists across different genres provides a one-of-a-kind experience with unique and unexpected mixes each time you play.”
Joining more than 30 previously announced songs, Hasbro shared more tracks from globally-recognized artists from multiple music genres including Pop, R&B, Dance, Indie, Country, Rock and Hip-Hop. The newly announced songs include: “AM I WRONG” by ANDERSON .PAAK (FT. SCHOOLBOY Q), “BOOM BOOM POW” by THE BLACK EYED PEAS, “BRING ME TO LIFE” by EVANESCENCE (FT. PAUL MCCOY), “LIKE A G6” by FAR EAST MOVEMENT (FT. THE CATARACS & DEV), “WORK FROM HOME” by FIFTH HARMONY, “RADIOACTIVE” by IMAGINE DRAGONS, “KIDS” by MGMT, “GENGHIS KHAN” by MIIKE SNOW, “PUMP UP THE JAM” by TECHNOTRONIC, AND “NO SCRUBS” by TLC.
To play DROPMIX, users need the DROPMIX Music Gaming System which includes an electronic DROPMIX Board, 60 DROPMIX Cards, and the DROPMIX app, which will be free to download on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices. When a DROPMIX card is placed on a Mix Slot, the electronic DROPMIX Board immediately starts playing the corresponding part of the song (bass, beat, loop or vocals) noted on the card. The board reads up to five DROPMIX Cards at a time and the groundbreaking software in the app seamlessly combines the music within each card to create a unique mix.
The DROPMIX Music Gaming System will be available at major retailers and online in Fall 2017 for the suggested retail price of $99.99. In addition to the 60 DROPMIX Cards in the Music Gaming System, Hasbro will release Playlist Packs with 16 themed DROPMIX Cards for the suggested retail price of $14.99 and Discover Packs with five DROPMIX Cards from different genres for the suggested retail price of $4.99.
