In yet another new Wii game announcement, THQ today revealed Band Mashups
would be coming to Nintendo's home console this May in Australia. The game combines both rythm and action-based gameplay with full use of the Nintendo Wii Remote. The concept sounds pretty unique with a varying number of band and music types, all duking it out in new and interesting ways.
"Band Mashups takes an innovative approach to the rhythm/action genre by blending music and combat in the ultimate battle of the bands," said Randy Shoemaker, global brand director, THQ. "Using a rhythm based game-play mechanic, the game delivers 70 over-the-top musical weapons and utilizes the Wii Remote's functionality to deliver a completely original musical combat experience. Fighting with a sniper violin or flamethrower guitar is something gamers should definitely look forward to."
See, unique. Not much else is known about the title, though the Press Release
did reveal there will be "150 tracks and five distinct musical styles: rock, funk/hip-hop, country, marching band and Latin". I don't know about you, but I'd be pretty keen to have the funk/hip-hop style try and slog it out with country - if only they had metal and hardcore as well...
