THQ prepares a new musical game for the Nintendo Wii : Band Mashups, where up to two players will be able to use one of the 11 bands available which are trying to topple the evil Mr. Hong. The concept is a modification of the musical style as the game progresses (rock, funk/hip-hop, country, latin and marching band). The game has 30 unique tracks from the last four decades recorded in all the above styles for a grand total of 150 tracks. Release date is set to next April.
The developers were not inspired at all by the design of Guitar Hero. If they give me a country version of Hammer Smashed Face (Cannibal Corpse) or a rock version of Everytime We Touch (David Guetta), I'll be happy (won't happen)! What, it would be funny :)
during the 64 era Nintendo at least had Rare in their prime, but it was the start of real painful gaps in content. (1 Hour ago)
if you skipped the 64, Gamecube and Wii you may not feel their software issues the same as others. From what they've shown so far they've done little to correct their previous console issues. (1 Hour ago)
I don't think Nintendo can or will fit the mold he expects them to though. They never have, really. (2 Hours ago)
Jim always presents a solid argument. I think Nintendo has more wiggle room with this thing than people think if the market responds poorly to it. A portable SKU for example. (2 Hours ago)
@droezelke: The complaints he has in that video are mostly valid I'd say, sadly. (2 Hours ago)
