Nintendo is set to launch a rival to the ‘Rock Band’ and ‘Guitar Hero’ computer game franchises – which allow players to simulate playing musical instruments.
The firm will launch a new game, ‘Music’, for the Wii console, which will see players using the Wii Remote controller to simulate playing from a selection of over 50 different musical instruments.
See a video demonstration of the game by clicking on the video below.
The demonstration, made at the E3 games conference in Los Angeles, came after Nintendo announced details of a new hyper-sensitive remote for the Wii console.
The Wii MotionPlus will add greater sensitivity to game-playing, paving the way for more complex music simulation games in the future.
‘Music’ is set to be released later in 2008.
