Band Mashups Brings Musical Warfare to Wii
THQ has announced Band Mashups is on its way to the Wii. The game uses the Wii-mote to execute fast-paced combat. Players can customize their bands choosing from 150 tracks and five musical styles: rock, funk/hip-hop, country, marching band and Latin.
“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.”
As the bands battle, the one that’s ahead controls the style of music heard. Just hope the guy who loves the marching band tunes isn’t hardcore.
