Rock Band 2 Announced for Wii

Rock Band 2 Announced for Wii
July 10, 2008 at 4:19 PDT – Source: Press Release

MTV Games and Harmonix will launch the game as an Xbox 360 release this September with a Wii version to follow sometime later this year.
MTV Games along with Harmonix offically announced yesterday that Rock Band 2 is slated for a Wii release later this year. Currently it is unknown as to whether or not the Wii version will support everything found in the Xbox 360 version, specifically downloadable content.

Rock Band 2 is confirmed to ship with over 80 songs on the disc, all of which are master tracks. Currently ten tracks have been revealed, spanning nearly five decades, they are as follows:


Dream Theater "Panic Attack"
System of a Down "Chop Suey"
Foo Fighters "Everlong"
The Muffs "Kids in America"
Red Hot Chili Peppers "Give it Away"
Motörhead "Ace of Spades"
Cheap Trick "Hello There"
Elvis Costello "Pump it Up"
Journey "Anyway You Want It"
The Who "Pinball Wizard"

Rock Band 2 will also feature a slew of new modes including Tour Challenges, Drum Trainer, and Battle of the Bands. Tour Challenges will replace the original Rock Band's Solo Tour and will allow the player to take on a random or focused set of songs in a similar fashion as the multiplayer Band World Tour. The Drum Trainer mode will help players develop their in-game drumming skills through a series of tutorials. The Battle of the Bands mode will feature contests that will allow virtual bands to take on other bands through challenges online that will constantly be produced by Harmonix.

In addition to these new modes, Band World Tour will be refined and include online play, the ability to have any character play any instrument and hirable staff. Quickplay will now be easier to navigate and also grant you the ability to make your own setlists.

Rock Band 2 is due for release on the Wii later this year, specifically after September.

Start A Band, Rock The World!

Developed by Harmonix, the world's premier music videogame company, and published by MTV Games, Rock Band™ 2 is the next evolution of the groundbreaking music platform that forever changed the face of music videogames. Rock Band 2 builds upon the original, challenging players to put together a band and tour for fame and fortune while learning to master lead/bass guitar, drums and vocals, and raises the bar to include an entirely new level of depth, connectivity, authenticity and exhilarating features.

Rock Band 2 will feature more than 80 tracks on disc – but it doesn't stop there. Players will have access to all DLC tracks, packs and albums released to date as well as future DLC releases; that's more than 200 song choices and counting. The music in Rock Band 2 features all master recordings and spans all genres of rock from punk, metal and alternative to classic and southern rock.

Rock Band 2 will be released on Xbox 360™ videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft this September and will have an exclusive launch window in North America. Rock Band 2 will be available for the PLAYSTATION® 3 and PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment systems and Nintendo Wii™ system later this year.

They better make the Wii version like the 360 edition.







EDIT:
OMG, Wikipedia said you could freeplay with your drumset to your MP3 songs on your 360.

Also that thing looks awesome.

You can really play with songs that you have? Awesome!! I'm definitely going to try to get this game (especially for free: that would be nice).
