Mad Catz has announced that it has signed a multi-year license agreement with Nintendo to build Rock Band accessories and peripherals for the Nintendo Wii. The agreement allows Mad Catz to produce and distribute a bass guitar and a portable drum set.

Rights granted allow the distribution of these items worldwide, outside of Asia. Mad Catz says that the products will be available in early 2009. I hope we see some accessories for the PS3 versions of the game too.

“We are thrilled to enter into this agreement with Nintendo,” said Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz. “Together we will provide Rock Band fans the opportunity to enhance their gameplay with Mad Catz’ premium instruments for Nintendo’s extremely popular Wii system.”
