Yesterday's official announcement of LEGO Rock Band had just enough details to get the ball rolling on the teen and tween targeted band game. But it didn't reveal much about the giant robot battles.
The Xbox.com description of LEGO Rock Band—the Xbox 360 version, anyway—sheds a bit more light on what will separate the LEGO branded version from its forebears—with the exception of customizable LEGO brick minifigs, easier difficulty and exclusive-for-now tracks.
New to the younger-skewing version will be "LEGO-themed rock challenges" which include the option to "destroy a giant robot, summon a storm, and demolish a skyscraper using the power of rock!" The emphasis is theirs, but I'll second it.
While the official release mentioned a customizable "entourage, including roadies, managers and crew," the product description also notes that LEGO Rock Band lets players build "cooler vehicles" and "buy furniture, decorate the walls and customize your band's hang-out" in your "LEGO rock den."
We still do not see mention of customizable LEGO groupies, but we're looking really hard for that information.
