Breaking: Guitar Hero comes to the Wii

During Activision's conference call on Wednesday, CEO Mike Griffith stated that Guitar Hero will be making it's way to the Wii:

"The key difference in our strategy versus the prior cycle, is that in addition to full support on Sony and Microsoft platforms, we will aggressively target the Nintendo platforms consistent with our multi-platform strategy and Nintendo's expected growth. In fiscal 2008, we will double our offerings on the DS and the Wii, including Spider-Man, Shrek, Transformers, and Guitar Hero."

Or every time a game get annouced for the wii I get a headache trying to figure out how the control scheme is going to work.

Slap the mote into a shell?
It'd be nice if they could use the 'mote and 'chuck in the style of an actual guitar, but I don't see that as being terribly effective. Seems like you'd either miss too many notes, or just be using a totally revamped and weird new control scheme that'd change the game considerably. Maybe they could make it work, I dunno... but the shell idea looks likely.

I think the most logical control scheme for this would be to put the Wii Remote into the neck of a guitar shell, probably at the very top, connected to the internal controls of the shell guitar via the same connector used for the nunchuck. I think the coolest possibility for this setup would be to see your character on screen holding the guitar and manipulating it the same way you are manipulating the guitar controller.

That all being said, I'm hoping for two things: that the Wii Guitar Hero game is the rumored "Guitar Hero: 80's Edition" and that extra songs will be avaliable for download through WiiConnect24. 'Cause that would just rock.
