IGN's Exclusive Reveal: Guitar Hero DS

More than a year ago, Activision revealed that the company was interested in branching its Guitar Hero franchise onto platforms such as the Nintendo DS. It's been a long wait, but the company has finally revealed exclusively to IGN and Yahoo the Guitar Hero game that will soon hit the dual-screen handheld later this year.

The Nintendo DS version -- Guitar Hero: On Tour -- is in development at Vicarious Visions, the team best known for the Tony Hawk and Spider-Man series on the dual-screen handheld, as well as the Nintendo Wii conversion of Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock released late last year. This portable version will feature the same rhythm-based "play to the music" gameplay of the big boys, 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.

The story is too old to be commented.

i didnt think they would implement it like this, but it looks pretty cool

I was thinking something else like a addon to the side of the DS and have all 5 buttons and another addon to the other side for the strum...but this is 1000X cooler ^_^

That does look like it will be weird to play....and probably will cost quite a bit. That was also a terrible commercial.

the commercial is quite stupid, but it actually may be fun
