Rock Band knock-off announced for Wii and DS!!!

Disney on Wednesday announced Ultimate Band for Wii and DS, no peripherals required (but isn’t that part of the fun?).

“Disney is working with some of the very biggest names in rock, alternative, popular, emo and indie rock music, allowing band mates to play sets from a broad selection of current hits and all-time rock favorites,” says a presser. “Friends and families can rock out on guitar, bass, drums or as the front man.”

Ultimate Band will exclusively use either the Wii remote or DS stylus when hitting on screen notes. Without the use of a microphone, however, we wonder if the “front man” will merely play the tambourine, or better still, the cowbell.

Sadly, a list of licensed tracks were missing from today’s announcement, but Disney says the included songs are “instantly-recognizable.. from every decade since the 60s.” The game is slated for a 2008 holiday release on Wii and DS.

More rhythm games can only be a good thing, but we’ll keep our expectations low until we learn more about Ultimate Band. – Gamepro.com
