> Guitar Hero: On Tour

Guitar Hero: On Tour is the game for the Nintendo DS, released June 22nd. The game comes with a four-button fretboard attachment. The game features 26 songs: twenty-one songs exclusive to On Tour, and five from Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock. It is the first game in the Guitar Hero series not to be released for the Playstation 2.

Gameplay

The gameplay in On Tour was designed to be similar to the home console games while still maintaining the portability of the Nintendo DS. The new Guitar Grip peripheral replaces the guitar controller of the home games with an adapter for older DS systems; it attaches to the DS's GBA slot and features four fret buttons. In order to strum, the player uses their stylus (a special pick-shaped stylus is included with the game) to strum the notes on the touch screen. Star Power is activated either by blowing or speaking into the DS's microphone, pressing one of the system's face buttons, or tapping the Star Power meter.The Guitar Grip for the game. Returning characters are Pandora, Axel Steel, Judy Nails and Johnny Napalm along with two unique characters made specifically for Guitar Hero: On Tour, Gunner Jaxon and Memphis Rose. The game also features a redone version of the band you play seen in previous games. The Female Singer from previous games has been replaced by a different one, along with a new drummer, and The Singer replaces The Bassist.

Soundtrack

Guitar Hero: On Tour features two different track lists, one for primarily English-speaking regions including North America, the British Isles, and Australia, and another for other non-English-speaking European countries with five replacement songs.[1] Both track lists includes 26 licensed tracks including one bonus track, with about 85% of them being master recordings.[2] Twenty are exclusive to this version of Guitar Hero while the remaining six songs have previously been used within the series. Freezepop's "I Am Not Your Gameboy" is a bonus song that is unlocked by completing Guitar Duels on one difficulty in the game.

Trivia

  • On the On Tour website it says that Gunner Jaxon is Gunner Jackson and Memphis Rose is Memphis Belle. It is unknown why these names were changed.
  • There have been rumors about having 5 bonus songs for the game: I Am Not Your GameBoy by Freezepop, Welcome to the Jungle by Guns n' Roses, Crazy Train by Ozzy Osborne, Master Of Puppets by Metallica and Dani California by Red Hot Chili Peppers. I Am Not Your GameBoy is the only real bonus song.
  • This game will not be compatible with the new Nintendo DSi, due to it's lack of a GBA slot to attach the Guitar Grip to.
  • Guitar Hero On Tour: Decades will be able to "share songs" with Guitar Hero:On Tour using a wireless connection. In other words, if one person person had Guitar Hero:On Tour and another had Guitar Hero On Tour:Decades, both players would be able to "share" and play the 26 songs on Guitar Hero:On Tour and 28 songs on Guitar Hero On Tour:Decades, adding up to a total of 54 songs. But once the connection is interrupted or stopped , one player cannot play another game's setlist until the connection is restored or restarted.
