Ubisoft 'Jam Sessions' turns DS into guitar

jam sessionsUbisoft has picked up the North American publishing rights to Hiite Utaeru DS Guitar M-06, simplifying the name to 'Jam Sessions' and adding a save feature. Guitar Hero this is not. Gone is the rock star play-along backdrop, replaced with bare chord cues and player-generated rhythms. Jam Sessions morphs your DS into a simulated acoustic guitar, meaning that "it's both cooler ... and potentially way more niche" than the Harmonix pastime. Picture it: Minibosses take the stage and rock an entire 'Unplugged' sesh on their DSs.

Jam Sessions is scheduled to ship in June.
