Traxion ditched, PSP loses unique music puzzler as LucasArts and Kuju split

Filed under: , ,

sony pspIn a surprise development, LucasArts and Kuju have announced they're breaking up, putting an end to the pair's would-be lovechild Traxion. Billed as a music-puzzle game, Traxion was going to integrate Kuju's music analysis technology with a player's MP3 collection (stored on the PSP Memory Stick), generating a series of minigames that would correspond to certain elements of each song -- the game would also include its own licensed tracks. Unfortunately this ambitious project has proved to be the undoin g of Kuju and publisher LucasArts's partnership.

While Traxion's future is uncertain, Kuju has confirmed it's developing other music-based software for unspecified platforms.
