What may have seemed like a late April Fool’s internet rumour has now come to light as definitely happening. Rock Band and Lego will be making a game together.
The game will come from TT Games and Harmonix, with gameplay very similar to Rock Band, and will be played by using either Rock Band or Guitar Hero peripherals. Both Rock Band and Lego have a way of latching onto franchises with there being Lego Batman, Star Wars and Indiana Jones games, as well as Rock Band: The Beatles (epic!). It does seem quite convoluted that they would merge together for a game, thats why almost everyone thought it just a joke. The playlist seems to imply younger players and that definitely fits in with the Lego aesthetic. Hopefully some Lego gameplay mechanics will be integrated as well and a Lego Guitar controller would be very nice. Expected to be released in the 2009 Holiday season.
