Battle of the Bands brings the ultimate battle of the bands to the Wii! Using a rhythm-based gameplay mechanic, the game utilizes the Wii remote’s functionality to create an original musical combat experience, using 70 over-the-top musical weapons ranging from the sniper violin to the flamethrower guitar! Choose your musical style and battle it out with your customizable band, taking on 10 bands before trying to topple the nefarious big boss Mr Hong.
Battle of the Bands introduces the concept of “music switching,” putting the player winning the battle in control of the style of music both players hear. When an opponent turns the tide of battle, the music changes as well, switching between different music styles. The game features 30 classic and modern chart-topping hits from over the last four decades, all of which have been recorded in five different styles - (rock, funk/hip-hop, country, Latin and marching band) - for the game, resulting in a total of 150 unique, playable recordings.
