WiiMusic is chockfull of all the instruments you’d expect to be available for waggling your Wiimote to, as well as a few other ‘instruments’ that you absolutely didn’t expect. While the full hands-on report will be arriving to the site a little later on, I figured I’d whet your appetite for what’s to come by introducing WiiMusic‘s Puppy Suit instrument. Available amidst the harmony options, the Puppy Suit is, well, your Mii wearing a Puppy Suit. Making puppy sounds. Oh yeah.
But what is a Puppy Suit? Where did it come from? How on earth does it make music? Take a look at the above video (sorry for the loud showroom noise in the back) and then hit the jump to hear more about this musical furry costume and a special explanation of the instrument by yours truly to the puppy loving Chad Concelmo!
When choosing the Puppy Suit as your harmony instrument in WiiMusic, the Wiimote and the nunchuck become your large, plushy puppy hands. By moving them in front of you, your Mii will emit tiny puppy yelps. It’s ridiculous, and adorable, to hear the Super Mario Bros Puppy remix, but it feels kind of weird to ‘play’ the suit when you’re just pawing at thin air.
You’ll also notice in the video the option to use turntables and beat boxing as instruments. Fancy huh! I get a little more in depth about those when explaining my experiences to Chad in the video bleow:
