PopStar Guitar features songs from top pop music stars including 3 Doors Down, Simple Plan, Blink 182 and many more, allowing players to unlock their inner pop celebrity and star as the lead guitarist in their very own band.

PopStar Guitar allows players to unlock their inner pop celebrity and star as the lead guitarist in their very own band.

"The popularity of music rhythm games is at an all time high, but to date the games have primarily featured hard core metal, classic and alternative rock music," said Steve Grossman, chief executive officer of XS Games. "With popular songs from today's top pop artists, PopStar Guitar is a game the whole family can enjoy. We've also created a dynamic new air guitar game play experience with our AirG peripheral for the Wii, allowing players to have a blast as they unleash their inner pop star."

PopStar Guitar features a single player Career Mode and two-player Co-operative Mode, along with single player and multi-player mini-games. The game takes the player on a musical journey that starts with forming a garage band to playing at 25 unique venues and eventually performing in the worldwide "Battle of the Bands" contest. Twelve playable characters are featured in the game and can be customized to give the band its own unique look. PopStar Guitar features over 50 pop songs, including several masters performed by the original artists.

Exclusively for the Wii, PopStar Guitar will come with the AirG, a peripheral that snaps onto the Wii Remote and turns the controller into an electrifying air guitar. For PS2 players, PopStar Guitar will function with any PS2 compatible guitar peripheral.

PopStar Guitar will be available for the Wii and the PS2 in October 2008.
