Guitar Hero: On Tour Latest News - DS

Guitar Hero: On Tour
Game Description:Your jock will be rocked with the first DS entry in Red Octane's music series for guitar gods. This portable version features the same rhythm-based "play to the music" gameplay of console game, and will even have its own peripheral to get the job done: Red Octane has developed what it's calling the Guitar Grip to give players the ability to finger chords in similar fashion as the console version's guitar peripheral. Guitar Hero: On Tour will contain a wealth of licensed songs from bands as Nirvana, OK Go, and No Doubt, allowing gamers to rock out to tunes by some of their own guitar heroes. Players will be able to pick from six different guitarists to represent them in-game, with secret venues and outfits to unlock. And in addition to a full Career Mode, the game also has co-op or competitive two-player play, including special "On Tour" challenges exclusive to the DS game (with power-ups that will send opponents into a frenzied touchscreen autograph session or set their pyrotechnics display to go haywire and require players to blow out the fire.)
