EA Mobile's Twitter feed spilled the beans last night, and the company made it official today by announcing Rock Band for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It'll feature multiplayer, vocals and 20 songs.
A news release from EA mobile promises "live Bluetooth multiplayer" — OK, that part was all-capped, but we chose to spare your eyeballs. If you want to rock with friends not in the same room, the app says it will synch you up with bandmates via Facebook invitation. Yes, you read that right.
You get the same four instruments in the mobile version — git-tar, drums, bass and vocals. Multiplayer functions like it does in the console game — you'll hear your bandmates' missed notes and be able to save their arse with overdrive.
EA says it ships this month. It arrives with 20 songs (listed below) with more to come through an in-game music store.
The track list in the core game:
Attack-30 Seconds To Mars Girls Not Grey – AFI Move Along - All American Rejects Sabotage - Beastie Boys All The Small Things - Blink-182 Hanging on the Telephone – Blondie Learn To Fly - Foo Fighters Everlong - Foo Fighters Bad to The Bone - George Thorogood & the Destroyers Hymn 43 - Jethro Tull Bad Reputation - Joan Jett Simple Man - Lynard Skynard Ace of Spades '08 – Motorhead Debaser - Pixies Ladybug - Presidents of The United States of America Give It All - Rise Against Lazy Eye - Silversun Pick Ups Cherub Rock - Smashing Pumpkins Take The Money and Run - Steve Miller Band We Got The Beat - The Go Go's
