Cynicssaid it would never work, but Guitar Hero On Tour for DS, the forthcominghandheld version of Vicarious Vision’s muli-trillion selling gaming franchise,actually looks like it could well be a lot of fun from the new video demo ofthe game released from the Activision vaults this week.
Karthik Bala, CEO of Vicarious Visions (the development team behind Guitar Hero:On Tour) says of the game: “It was a very unusual project to work on…The gameactually started out over a year ago as an idea that some of our handheld guyswere batting.
Bizarre prototypes
Bala explains that the team were faced with a number of design challenges such as, "would it even be possible tobring the Guitar Hero experience to portable form?"
And, of course: “How do you recreate theessence of Guitar Hero for a portable without making everyone carry around afull size plastic guitar?”After a number of bizarre-looking prototypes. Some were ridiculous... others atotal disaster. But going from the demovideo on GameTrailers it looks like they’ve cracked it.
TechRadar should be gettinga hands on with the game in the coming weeks, so stay tuned for more…
