Disney promises the Ultimate Band experience on the DS

Disney has announced a new Wii/DS music game called Ultimate Band, developed by Fall Line Studios. The game is a Rock Band-style multi-instrument simulator that doesn't use any wacky peripherals (except, of course, for the supremely wacky peripherals both systems use by default). Both versions will allow players to play guitar, bass, drum, and vocals, and will feature "a broad selection of current hits and all-time rock favorites." Yes, many of those "current hits" will no doubt be the latest from Disney Channel stars.

Of the two, the DS version definitely sounds the most interesting: it is advertised as a "rhythm-based music game with a built-in recording studio" that allows players to record guitar, bass, drum, and vocal tracks for original songs and mix them in-game. We're slightly wary, having been fooled by promising-looking Disney music games before. Both versions will use Disney's Dgamer social network ... thing.

We foresee problems when Disney decides to start making sequels to a game they've already labeled "Ultimate." Although Square doesn't seem to have had any problems in that area.
