Jam Sessions 2 To Be Released This Fall

Ubisoft has revealed plans to release a follow-up to its critically acclaimed Jam Sessions video game with Jam Sessions 2 for the Nintendo DS(TM) and Nintendo DSi(TM) systems. Scheduled for release in Fall 2009 in North America, Jam Sessions 2 is a guitar game developed by Plato that makes improving your guitar skills fun and rewarding.

Each song in the gameplay mode serves a different role in advancing players' guitar skills and songwriting abilities. By progressing through the songbook, players learn techniques that will help them play the guitar and write songs. Armed with their new skills, players can play, create and share their own original music with others.

"Ubisoft is pleased to present players of all ages with a music game that builds on the unique foundation of the first title,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. "In Jam Sessions 2, players can freestyle sections of featured songs and make them their own. With a push of a button, players' created works can be included in the game play and instantly converted into a playable level.”

Gaming Nexus elaborated further:

"Developers at Plato ensure some originality by having players develop actual guitar and songwriting skills (don’t say video games don’t teach kids anything). While the Guitar Hero and RockBand series require some practice to get the hang of the controls, Jam Sessions 2 will expect a little more of their gamers. A pretty elaborate UI setup (strings, a note chart, and guitar chords) in tandem with song editing software give us gamers more opportunity to actually play with the game. After getting through the songbook, newfound musicians can make playable (and shareable) songs instantly. You even have a selection on what electric guitar you want to use.

"After making enough songs to qualify as an album, said musicians can create an artist profile and launch their album, complete with cover art of their choosing."
