Get ready to build a band and rock the universe with LEGO® Rock Band™, the multiplayer music videogame that will have the entire family drumming, strumming and rocking to the beat. Published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and MTV Games, a part of Viacom’s MTV Networks), LEGO Rock Band is available now at retail stores in North America for Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Wii™ console, and Nintendo DS™. Offering affordable family entertainment, LEGO Rock Band for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii is available for $49.99, and Nintendo DS for $29.99.
Combining two of the most popular videogame brands, LEGO Rock Band pairs the fun, customization and humor of LEGO videogames with the multiplayer music experience pioneered by Rock Band. Filled with 45 chart-topping songs and classic favorites, LEGO Rock Band allows family members of all ages and skill levels to break loose on the bass, drums, guitar and mic to a soundtrack filled with hit songs from Queen, Foo Fighters, Jackson 5, The All-American Rejects, Jimi Hendrix, Good Charlotte, Tom Petty and more.
With LEGO, Rock Band brings its highly successful series to Nintendo DS for the first time. In addition to the classic instrument play found in the console versions, LEGO Rock Band offers the same level of engagement without the need for peripherals to play the game and is compatible with Nintendo DS, Nintendo DS™ Lite and Nintendo DSi™. Also unique to LEGO Rock Band is the introduction of Rock Power Challenges. Players can harness the power of rock to pull off killer riffs so intense they can demolish a building, thwart an angry octopus or send gamers on other crazy missions. And in the LEGO style of “build-and-play” gaming, players can customize their own experience by creating their minifigure avatars, band and entourage.
Fans can extend their experience with family-friendly downloadable content from the massive Rock Band™ Music Store on their Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles that contains more than 350 songs that can be played within LEGO Rock Band. Players can also export songs from LEGO Rock Band to their Xbox 360 beginning November 3, 2009 and PlayStation 3 beginning November 12, 2009 to play across other Rock Band games. LEGO Rock Band is compatible with most third party instrument controllers and microphones. For a list of compatible peripherals, please visit http://www.rockband.com/compatibility.
