Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits

Guitar Hero On Tour: Modern Hits is a music video game for the Nintendo DS system based on the Guitar Hero series. The game is developed by Vicarious Visions and published by Activision. Gameplay involves gamers to follow the lead guitar portion of a rock song as note patterns scroll by on the game’s screen. Instead of the normal guitar peripheral used in other game console versions, On Tour is packaged with the “Guitar Grip”, a four-fret controller that fits into the Game Boy Advance slot on the Nintendo DS hardware (not compatible with Nintendo DSi). The game has an ESRB: E10+ / OFLC: G / PEGI: 3+ rating.

Features

Guitar Hero On Tour features a set list comprised of 28 master tracks from artists including Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Tenacious D, The Strokes and Weezer. The game expands on Guitar Hero® gameplay on the Nintendo DS by introducing a Fan Request system. By completing Fan Requests players build their fan base and open up new challenges before jamming to an entire song in Hyperspeed, battling it out in a Guitar Duel with active Bomb Notes or whammying every single hold note in a song. Players can choose how they take their band from the underground music scene to worldwide rock stardom with non-linear gameplay progression in Guitar Hero On Tour. The game comes bundled with the Guitar Hero™ Guitar Grip™ which mimics a guitar fret board and fits in hands to deliver the same core gameplay that defines Guitar Hero. There is a single player Career Mode, allowing the player to select from six different characters; Axel Steel, Judy Nails, Pandora, and Johnny Napalm are present from past Guitar Hero games, while new to On Tour are Gunner Jaxon and Memphis Rose. Completing Career Mode will unlock more venues and options for the selected character's appearance. The game utilizes the local wireless abilities of the Nintendo DS to support both 2-player co-operative play and competitive play. The competitive play introduces “Guitar Duel”, where one player creates a temporary distraction for the other player by completing certain sections of the song. These distractions require the affected player to utilize features of the DS to remove the distraction. The game also features song streaming which allow players to share songs via local wireless connectivity. Players can rock out together in multiplayer modes, jamming to tracks from all three versions of the game.
