Rock Thunder Guitar for Wii works with Rock Band and Guitar Hero

Talismoon has announced a new guitar controller, shaped like the Gibson Flying V, called the “Rock Thunder Guitar.”

What’s cool about it is its compatibility with all versions of Guitar Hero and Rock Band for Wii. And it’s wireless, has a five position switch for choosing guitar effects, and a tactile feedback strum bar.

The best part? It has its very own motion sensor which means that you do NOT have to insert your Wiimote into the guitar when playing Rock Band (sorry Guitar Hero).

Rock on.

  • Pre-order Rocksmith, get $25 off a guitar

    Most other rhythm / music games come bundled with their own plastic peripherals. Rocksmith doesn’t, but Ubisoft would like to make it easier for you to buy the real guitar you’ll need to play the game.
