That\'s right. Guitar Hero for the DS! We\'ve got the details on how you\'ll rock out this summer.
Activision has revealed the latest addition to their growing Guitar Hero franchise - Guitar Hero: On Tour for Nintendo DS. The game will include classic rock, alternative and pop favorites such as Nirvana, OK Go and No Doubt.
The game will be packaged with a Guitar Hero Guitar Grip peripheral that fits snugly into the DS and a unique Guitar Hero pick-stylus. Guitar Hero: On Tour has been designed specifically for the DS platform.
Players use the Guitar Hero pick-stylus on the touch screen to strum the virtual guitar while the other hand pushes the colored buttons.
Players can also enjoy co-op mode using a local wireless network, or battle each other in a Guitar Duel using new Battle Items unique to the DS. For example, players must blow into the microphone to extinguish a pyrotechnics effects gone wrong, or use the touch screen to autograph a crazed fan's shirt in the middle of their set.
Featured in Guitar Hero: On Tour are five unlockable new venues, customizable guitars and six characters -- two of which are all new and exclusive.
Guitar Hero: On Tour is scheduled for release this summer.
