Those of you who are thinking about hanging up your cape up and tights and quitting the Guitar Hero business might want to reconsider. Speaking with the Seattle Times, Guitar Hero founder Kai Huang gave fans a glimpse into the future of his finger-frying franchise.

“We haven’t made any specific announcements of what we’re doing with new technologies in Guitar Hero 6 and beyond, but one of the areas we’re exploring certainly is camera technology and what you can do — track your movements and maybe have your characters on the screen do certain things you’re doing, or personalize it more so it can look more like you on stage rather than just be an avatar,” he said.

“There are a lot of possibilities that technologies like Natal will bring, and we’re definitely exploring those possibilities.”

Rock Band’s next installment, meanwhile, is aiming for more realism, which almost assuredly means drugs, alcoholism, being stalked by a starving paparazzi that subsists off your soul, and crazy fans who want to steal your clothes and auction them on eBay.

Oh, he was talking about the instruments? You don’t say.
