GAME DETAILS

Enter into the world of musical combat where your rhythmic skills and weaponized instruments are your tools for domination. Welcome to the Battle of the Bands!

  • 5 music genres: Rock, Country, Marching Band, Hip Hop and Ranchero
  • 11 unique style bands
  • 30 licensed tracks (each in 5 genres totaling 150 songs)
  • 70 special weapons and attacks

In each game, a song will be played in one genre for about 10 to 15 seconds and then another, flipping back and forth. Points are earned by beat-matching, and successive matches will automatically launch weapons such as smoke bombs, land mines and flip outs. The more points earned, the more the music will be played in the player’s genre.

  • Battle of the Bands: Prove your favorite music genre is better than the opponents’
  • Weaponized Instruments: Battle to the top of the charts with an array of artillery and attack styles
  • Intense Rhythm Action: Feel the rhythm by swinging the Wii-mote in sync with different music melodies
  • Innovative Music Switching: Explore chart-toppers mashing up in different genres
  • Versus mode: Heads-on battles perfect for social and party game setting
  • Adventure mode: Compete with bands of other genres one by one all the way to the Big Boss battle
  • Music player: Blast out all 150 songs
