It looks like the rumors were right as LEGO Rock Band
has been officially announced
. I'm still not sure why we need a LEGOified version of the game as it's just the same engine with little LEGO people instead of the regular in-game avatars but I have a feeling I'm not necessarily in the target audience for this one. Like the original game you'll get to configure your figures a bit through earned money and the game will allow you to use all of the plastic instruments that are occupying space in the nooks and crannies of your home.
Here are the four new songs have been confirmed for the game:
- Blur - "Song 2"
- Carl Douglas - "Kung Fu Fighting"
- Europe - "The Final Countdown"
- Good Charlotte - "Boys and Girls"
- Pink - "So What"
I'm all in for Song 2 and the Final Countdown but not sure about the rest, hopefully we get a few more reasons to get the game as I think this might be a pass for those who don't have kids or a serious Rock Band
