THQ Joins in Rhythm Game Fun with Band Mashups (Update: Screens Added)

Publisher THQ today announced that this April will see the release of Band Mashups, a Wii-exclusive rhythm/action game, and released three screenshots of the title.

The game features 30 tracks that have been popular at some point during the past 40 years, all recorded in rock, funk/hip-hop, country, Latin and marching band styles. During the game, which features a single-player campaign and can also be played against a friend, you will be able to switch styles thanks your musical weapons. nope

"Band Mashups takes an innovative approach to the rhythm/action genre by blending music and combat in the ultimate battle of the bands," said Randy Shoemaker, global brand director, THQ. "Using a rhythm based game-play mechanic, the game delivers 70 over-the-top musical weapons and utilizes the Wii Remote's functionality to deliver a completely original musical combat experience. Fighting with a sniper violin or flamethrower guitar is something gamers should definitely look forward to."

Band Mashups is in development at Planet Moon Studios, the studio behind such games as Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Infected and Armed & Dangerous.
