Rock on the road to fame.

Ultimate Band is a new music video game that allows you to build a band or jam alone to become the ultimate rock performer.

People of all ages will realise their dream of becoming a star as they rock out to more than 30 songs, from popular classics to today's chart-topping hits.

Aspiring rockers can try their hand at every aspect of a band - choose from the drums, bass guitar, lead guitar, or take on the role of the frontman of your band.

It's all about how you perform and own the stage as you unleash your inner star to some of the biggest names in rock, alternative, popular, emo and indie music.

Experience the rush of the road to stardom in story mode. Advance your music career and popularity from humble beginnings playing in a neighbourhood garage to performing in front of an international audience at a world-famous venue.

Players can also create a unique look for the band as you aim for the top of the music tree, creating and customising characters to reflect their personalities.

On the Nintendo DS, players can perform to 15 timeless songs on the drums, lead guitar, bass guitar or rhythm guitar. You can also attempt to become the best songwriter in rock history, as you lay down tracks in the recording studio and apply creative mixing effects to create the song that will make you the Ultimate Band.

Two-time Grammy nominees Plain White T's are featured in Ultimate Band for the Wii, with exclusive videos, including an acoustic performance of the single Natural Disaster.

Plus a re-recorded version of Our Time Now allows players to use male or female voices for their own uniquely customised frontman.

As players progress through the game's garage to stardom storyline, they unlock specially designed Plain White T's band characters while performing Our Time Now.

These characters can be then played during any song throughout the game.

Our Time Now is also featured in the Nintendo DS version of the game. Players increase their fans by strumming along to the chords on the lead, rhythm or bass guitars, as well as keeping the beat on the drums..
