LEGO Rock Band is a unique family-friendly music experience, which will allow families, tweens and teens to experience a wild journey to rock stardom where they can "Build a Band and Rock the Universe."

LEGO Rock Bandfor DS combines the LEGO style of humor with Rock Band gameplay to introduce a portable Rock Band experience that anyone can play without the need for peripherals to be purchased.  The game also includes a multiplayer feature that allows up to four players to participate in local wireless multiplayer gameplay.

The DS version of LEGO Rock Band offers a journey to stardom that friends and families of all ages can enjoy as they rock out in local venues, stadiums and fantasy locations on Earth… and beyond!  In a LEGO “build-and-play” gaming experience, players can customize their minifigure avatars to create their own individual LEGO Rock Band style.  The game does not require any peripherals, as players can use the DS buttons or touchscreen to play any or all parts of a song: Bass, Guitar, Drums and Vocals.  With dynamic track-switching and combo multipliers, the gameplay is accessible for young players, as well as deep and rewarding for even the most skillful of gamers.

Start a band and tour for fame and fortune on-the-go as either a one-man-band or with up to three friends using multi-player mode.
