Nintendo launched Wii Music today saying that the game introduces a new genre in video games. Interest in music games is at an all time high thanks to Rock Band and Guitar Hero, but Wii music is a different animal. The game gives players more than 60 instruments and allows experimentation with them in different ways. The instruments are played using the motion sensing capability of the Wii Remote and Nunchuk to mimic the real-life motions of the instruments.

The game has a song list that offers tracks like Every Breath You Take, Please Mr. Postman, and The Entertainer. Themes from classic Nintendo games like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, and Wii Sports are included as well. The Wii Fit Balance Board can be used as pedals for a drum set. The game sells for $49.99.
“Music is a universal language that inspires and moves people,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “Wii Music provides a fun way for people to play together and be entertained while building a fundamental understanding of musical themes and rhythms. Wii Music can motivate people to learn real instruments or enhance their appreciation of musical performances.”
