Yesterday at E3, Nintendo announced Wii Music, their latest interactive product targeted at the casual gaming market. Launching off of successful titles like Wii Sports and Wii Fit, Nintendo is now trying its hand at the established genre of musical video games. The difference with Wii Music is that there is not the focus with reproducing old favorites, instead you must create music. The game gives you 50 instruments at your disposal and is sure to be filled with numerous mini games to keep the uncommitted gamer hooked. You’ll be able to rock out on everything from a cowbell to a violin with up to 4 players. Video game composer/god, Kōji Kondō is a central part of the project and if he can produce anything on par with his iconic music from the Super Mario Brothers series, this is sure to be a hit. Here’s a clip from the unveiling at E3:
