Blur coming to Lego Rock Band
10/16/2009 9:07:00 AM
Warner Brothers revealed today that the LEGO likenesses of Brit rockers Blur will be making their way into LEGO Rock Band
which makes sense as the band's seminal song "Song 2" is part of the game's soundtrack. I'm guessing this eliminates the possibility of Oasis making an appearance in the game as the two groups aren't particularly fond of each other.
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and MTV Games today announced that LEGO® Rock Band™ will feature the likeness of UK band Blur. Singer Damon Albarn, guitarist Graham Coxon, bassist Alex James and drummer Dave Rowntree will be shown in the game as LEGO minifigure characters as players perform the group’s hit “Song 2.”
LEGO Rock Band puts the power of rock into the hands of tweens, teens, families and gamers of all ages as they go on a wild journey to stardom as they “Build a Band and Rock the Universe.” The game is developed by TT Games in partnership with Harmonix for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and Wii™ home videogame console. LEGO Rock Band for Nintendo DS™ is co-developed by TT Games and Harmonix in partnership with Backbone Entertainment, a Foundation 9 Entertainment studio. All versions are scheduled for release holiday 2009
