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 :)

    GriftGFX And some left (I think) Joycons have antenna issues, but I don't know how common that is/Nintendo has been replacing them. (3 Hours ago)

    asdfg How are the switch on the hardware side? Any design flaws like the 1st gen of a new system can have? (3 Hours ago)

    Megido It's fascinating how Nintendo always make like 3 copies of everything, especially when it's super in demand. (3 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX Why can't retailers keep doing pre-orders, anyway? (3 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX They need to do a better job at meeting demand too. How are people supposed to keep interest in a thing they can't buy? (3 Hours ago)
