Guitar Hero: On Tour is coming to the Nintendo DS. Its not out yet, but according the GuitarHeroOnTour.com, the game is set to be released this summer.
I have Guitar Hero 2, and have played the third one a bunch. The game series is awesome, and I have battled against my friends (and family) to declare domination of songs like War Pigs, Sweet Child O’ Mine and Woman.
This new installment looks interesting, but I’ll have to wait to see how it actually plays. Unlike the console versions of the game where you have a guitar shaped controller, the DS On Tour version has a small peripheral that attaches to the DS. On the peripheral you will find 4 color keys similar to the keys found on the console versions guitar controller (as seen in the pic)
Along with the single player campaign, Guitar Hero: On Tour will also support multiplayer. The game will feature both co-op as well as competitive two player options using the local wireless functions of the Nintendo DS system. The game’s battle mode will feature similar gameplay as the mode created in Guitar Hero III, with power-ups created specifically for Guitar Hero: On Tour. For example, players can activate power-ups that’ll send raving fans to the other screen, and the opponent will have to sign autographs on the touchscreen to get rid of them. Or out-of-control pyrotechnics will be set ablaze, and players will have to blow them out using the Nintendo DS microphone.
I can’t seem to find which songs are going to be on the game, but I’m hopeful that they hit the mark!
