Players can play as a group with other friends or play a solo game as well. The Wii Remote and DS stylus control all the action. Players can choose from guitar, bass, drums, or be the front man for the band. "Ultimate Band invites kids, tweens and teens to join in the jam session," said Craig Relyea, senior vice president, global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. "And whether they choose guitar, drums, bass or front man, members don't need to buy costly, single-function peripherals to play their way through Ultimate Band's deep song list, dynamic venues, and customizable characters. The Wii Remote(TM) and DS stylus are the only tools they'll need to reach rock stardom in Ultimate Band."
The game is set to be available for the 2008 holiday season and Disney says the music track list will include tunes from multiple genres from classic rock to current pop tracks. The game will be rated E10+ and the DS version allows players to create their own songs as well.
