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 :)
