BandFuse: Rock Legends announces final in-game mentor

Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho

BandFuse: Rock Legends, the music videogame that claims to transform players into real-world guitarists, bassists, and vocalists using legendary rockers, has announced its eighth and final in-game mentor: Alexi "Wildchild" Laiho from metal band Children of Bodom.

Laiho was voted as "Best Metal Guitarist" in Guitar World's 2008 Reader's Poll, and joins other in-game luminaries Slash, Bootsy Collins, George Lynch, Mike Ness, Zakk Wylde, and Five Finger Death Punch's Zolthan Bathory and Jason Hook.

We've previewed BandFuse a bit in the past, and it looks to join the ranks of Rocksmith as far as being a "we'll teach you how to play" game. However, the addition of vocals (and vocalists) to the set of what you'll learn should help separate the game, at least partially, from the pack. I know I'll be playing it when it drops on November 19, but is anyone else planning on picking BandFuse up?
