THQ's Band Mashups Bringing Musical Warfare to Wii in April 2008

THQ today announced that another not so Guitar Hero like music game named Band Mashups is scheduled exclusively for Nintendo's Wii console in April 2008. Band Mashups is in development at Planet Moon Studios, the studio behind such games as Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Infected and Armed & Dangerous. It will feature 150 tracks and five distinct musical styles: rock, funk/hip-hop, country, marching band and Latin. "Band Mashups takes an innovative approach to the rhythm/action genre by blending music and combat in the ultimate battle of the bands," said Randy Shoemaker, global brand director, THQ. "Using a rhythm based game-play mechanic, the game delivers 70 over-the-top musical weapons and utilizes the Wii Remote's functionality to deliver a completely original musical combat experience. Fighting with a sniper violin or flamethrower guitar is something gamers should definitely look forward to."Source: THQ
