Hoping to somehow diminish our aversion to the sight of Miis playing musical instruments
, Vicarious Visions is working the user-created, er ... "avatars" into the Wii version of Guitar Hero World Tour
in a so-called unique way. In an interview with IGN, the developer explained how the recently revealed
Mii mode, known as "Mii Freestyle," will work.
Using the guitar or drumkit peripherals (or, if you're
so inclined, the Wiimote and Nunchuck for "air drumming") the mode lets you and a friend jam in a variety of music genres, laying down single notes, chords, and beats as you wish. According to Vicarious Visions, it'll all sound good because, well, it's programmed to clean up what you do. Take that, years of practice!
