Lego Rock Band will work with "current" Guitar Hero controllers, Traveller's Tales boss Jonathan Smith has confirmed.
"We're certainly compatible with all the forthcoming new Rock Band instruments - and in the future you'll continue to be able to use any instruments which are Rock Band-compatible, as are the current Guitar
Hero controllers," the boss told VG247.
The game, which releases for PS3, 360, Wii and DS later this year, ended up being a Rock Band product rather than a Guitar Hero one due to Harmonix's enthusiasm for Lego, Smith added.
"The team at Harmonix have passion for Lego, and really pushed the idea forward," he said.
"The core Rock Band idea of 'building a band' is perfectly aligned with the values and playfulness of Lego gaming."
