Guitar Hero: Van Halen confirmed

Includes guest acts

The heavily anticipated but never confirmed Guitar Hero game Guitar Hero: Van Halen has been announced at E3.

Activision acknowledged its existence on the show floor where we'll be hopefully having a go on it sometime during the next couple of days.

In addition to tunes from the mighty Halen, guest acts will also be playable including Queen, Weezer, Blink 182, The Offspring and Queens of the Stone Age.

Van Halen follows Metallica and Aerosmith in having a Guitar Hero game all to themselves. The release will hit shelves in late 2009, definitely in time for Christmas.
