sort of covered the musical DS toy thing, but we are so impressed with every aspect of Jam Sessions.
great, it looks fun, the interface, while a little homebrew
-looking, is just ... pleasant. Look at that floral background!
We now know a little more about Jam Sessions
, like that it will come loaded with 20 licensed songs to play along with, complete with lyrics, and that your playing is limited to strumming rather than picking individual notes-- sorry, no solos. You can also change the sound of your guitar, adding distortion and delay effects. There's still no game attached, just songs you can play along with, or freeform strumming.
This game (well, toy
) just goes so far against what usually gets released in the US in so many ways. It looks totally fun and totally relaxing.
