Good news for GH fans. In a recent interview, the developer of Guitar Hero World Tour on Wii confirmed that downloadable songs will be available.
VV's CEO Karthik Bala had a few choice words to share:
"Guitar Hero World Tour will be the first Wii game to offer downloadable songs through an in-game music store. Players can preview, purchase and download songs using Wii Points. We'll have new tracks available on a regular basis".
Concerned about storage? Worry no more! Songs can be stored in a "rock archive" on SD cards, and used directly from there when needed. To store the music, a compact new format specific to Wii has been developed. The game disc itself will contain 85 tracks, which is a lot of music.
Bala says they were surprised at how many people were playing the Wii version of Guitar Hero 3 online, and the multiplayer this time around has really been fleshed out, with head-to-head modes, co-op modes and online career modes.
"The Wii is definitely a platform that appeals to a wide variety of people. A big part of Guitar Hero's success has come from its accessibility and broad appeal. In a way, it inherently overlaps with the Wii audience and their interests. Having said that, we are working on some Wii specific features that I can't quite talk about just yet".
If you're a Wii owner and into rhythm games, this sounds like it could be a winner.
