The game is similar to Rock Band, with gamers building their own band by using the Wii Remote and DS stylus.
“Ultimate Band invites kids, tweens and teens to join in the jam session,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president, global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios.
“And whether they choose guitar, drums, bass or front man, members don’t need to buy costly, single-function peripherals to play their way through Ultimate Band’s deep song list, dynamic venues, and customizable characters. The Wii Remote and DS stylus are the only tools they’ll need to reach rock stardom in Ultimate Band.”
The game is being developed by Fall Line Studios, with help from London-based music consultants, Radical Music. According to the publisher, Ultimate Band will feature classic tunes as well as today’s hottest songs.
