With the glut in popularity of musical games (cough Guitar Hero 583) Nintendo are putting finishing touches to Wii Music which was first shown at the initial announcement of the Wii many years ago.

New information revealed by N-Europe today suggests that there will be 40 different instruments to play requiring both button presses and gesture commands.

The game launches this year in Japan with a worldwide release likely to follow. This will definitely be one of the big showings at E3 this July.
