Japanese Web site Ruliweb.com presented new details today about Nintendo's upcoming title Wii Music.
According to the report, the gameplay in Wii Music will revolve around 'Play Sessions.' Up to six characters can participate in a session, four of which can be human-controlled. Players can expect the game to feature both old and new music from Nintendo's internal sound team. Replay options for each session should also be available.
Players will have access to the conductor baton and over 40 instruments, such as the Folk Guitar, Bass Guitar, Trumpet, Xylophone and Maracas. Different instruments will feature different controls. The trumpet will make stronger sounds when the Wii Remote is held at a high angle and weaker sounds at a low angle; the drums can be played using two Wii Remotes; a button can be used as a "pick" when playing the guitar to elicit both single sounds and full chords, and so forth.
Wii Music currently carries a tentative 2008 release date for all territories.
