Harmonix Announces LEGO Rock Band

It's real! Earlier this month at GDC, Harmonix developer senior designer Dan Teasdale unwittingly confirmed LEGO Rock Band. Today, a press release confirms the game.

LEGO Rock Band is being developed by TT Games in a partnership with Harmonix and published by Warner Bros. Entertainment. The game is built (geddit?) around the theme: "Build a Band and Rock the Universe." The teen and tween geared game boasts some of these tunes: Blur's "Song 2", Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting", Europe's "The Final Countdown", Good Charlotte's "Boys and Girls" and Pink's "So What".

"We're thrilled to offer another LEGO branded gaming experience that will deliver humorous and social play for families and friends," said Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, Vice President, the LEGO Group. "LEGO Rock Band is built around the same values of imagination and family-friendly creative role play that is present in other LEGO videogames. It will deliver innovative new elements of game play that complement the fun of the Rock Band experience."

The multi-platform title (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, DS) is slated for a Holiday 2009 and is compatible with Rock Band and "other music game" controllers.
