Lego Rock Band allows up to four players to participate in multiplayer gameplay
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, TT Games, the LEGO Group, Harmonix and MTV Games are building an all-new handheld music gaming experience that lets fans of all ages “Build a Band and Rock the Universe” wherever and whenever they want with LEGO Rock Band for Nintendo DS.
The game is claimed to combine the LEGO style of humour with Rock Band gameplay to introduce a portable Rock Band experience that anyone can play without the need for peripherals to be purchased.
This DS version offers a journey to stardom that friends and families of all ages can enjoy as they rock out in local venues, stadiums and fantasy locations on Earth… and beyond! In a LEGO “build-and-play” gaming experience, players can customise their minifigure avatars to create their own individual LEGO Rock Band style.
The game does not require any peripherals, as players can use the DS buttons or touchscreen to play any or all parts of a song: bass, guitar, drums and vocals. With dynamic track-switching and combo multipliers, the gameplay is accessible for young players, as well as deep and rewarding for even the most skillful of gamers.
Start a band and tour for fame and fortune on-the-go as either a one-man-band or with up to three friends using multi-player mode. Songs on the soundtrack include the Kaiser Chiefs, The Automatic, Ray Parker Jr, Tom Petty, Jackson 5, Vampire Weekend, Blur, Carl Douglas, Europe, Good Charlotte, Pink, Counting Crows and Sum 4.
