In case you haven’t heard of Wii Music, it was revealed at E3 2008 during Nintendo’s Pre-E3 Press Conference and it allows literally anyone to jump in and start playing an instrument using the Wii Remote & Nunchuck to mimic gestures they’d make with that actual instrument.
Like shown in this video, where a girl plays the Cello!
The game supports 40 instruments (click the game name above to see a list of which specific instruments are in the game) and includes support for up to four-players so the whole family can get in on the action.
Now that Wii Music has a release date, I’m wondering what else Nintendo has planned for release this year, or if we won’t hear anything new until Christmas? Because Animal Crossing: City Folk is hitting on November 16th. That leaves only Wii Sports Resort (coming in 2009) from Nintendo (Wario Land: Shake It is releasing on September 22nd) and the rest of their line-up is a complete mystery. Hopefully they have a lot of stuff in the works. I guess we’ll see.
Here are some more Wii Music videos showing three other instruments being played with the game:
