To kickstart the month, Guitar Hero 5 will be released packing in over 80 songs (with DLC to come in the near future) and some new features including the use of a 32GB SD Card, which may hold up to 800 songs. Online will once again be present, bringing as many as eight players at once.

A new feature, exclusive only to the Wii, will be the connectivity between the Wii and DS called "Roadie Battle". In this game mode, each team will have the option to opt in their DS to become a Roadie.
