Wii Music was shown at E3 just a couple of minutes ago, and frankly it looks awesome! They started off by showing of some air drumming. You use the Wii Remote and Nunchuk as your own drumsticks and the Wii balance board as a bass foot pedal. This system seems to work quite well and looks like it’ll give Rock Band and Guitar Hero a run for their money.
After the drum solo had ended, Shigeru Miyamoto walked onto the stage, playing a ’saxophone’. He did this by holding the Remote to his mouth, recorder style, and used the buttons to emulate the notes…
Wii Music will appeal to all gamers. There are over 50 different instruments that you can play by just moving your body. All you have to do is hold the Wii-remote and move your hands in the way you would with a real instrument. For example, you can play a violin by simply using the nunchuck and its buttons as the neck and strings and the wii-remote as the stick. There are a variety of percussion instruments, and you can even play a guitar how you would really play it in real life.
The game includes lessons where you can learn to play the instruments. You can also even create your own music videos! You will be able to play with your friends in a band, playing some of your favorite Nintendo theme songs.
Wii Music has so much content, which is a good reason why it has probably been delayed all this time. Nintendo has been hard at work with this game so keep an eye out for it. We’ll keep you updated as E3 goes on.
