Band Mashups announced

Band Mashups announced

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 :)

    Loakum @GriftGFX: trends. 2D fighters was all the rage, then 3D fighters took over, now it switched back to 2D fighters. It'll switch again. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX There are too few 3D fighters anymore but I guess the genre shifted hard to 2D a while ago. (1 Hour ago)

    MrWhite I recently played the original quake in VR, and it almost reminded me and felt like the first time I played that game back in 1996. It brings the tension back to it, and its just really fun. (6 Hours ago)
