Rock Band drumming up more business on mobile phones


Get out your toothpicks, because Rock Band is coming to cell phones. After shrinking the rhythm franchise down for Rock Band Unplugged on PSP, EA is looking to make it even smaller on September 16th, when Verizon gets a mobile version. The 25 included songs are listed after the break.

The title will also support multiplayer, along with quickplay, "Tour mode," and leaderboards. We're currently unaware if players will be able to download additional tracks -- there's nothing we'd like more than adding another category to our novella-sized Rock Band Weekly posts.

30 Seconds to Mars – "Attack"
30 Seconds to Mars – "The Kill"
