At this point, even if there hadn't been official confirmation, it would be no surprise that Guitar Hero III
is on the way to the DS. Never mind that the DS is ill-suited for the Guitar Hero
experience-- it's a game console.
At least there's evidence that the RedOctane
Power Team is considering ways to make the DS less ill-suited for the game, including the method they used to make the original Guitar Hero
something other than just a simplified Frequency
: peripherals. "It's an integral part of the Guitar Hero experience, so as much as possible, we would like to keep it within the experience as long as it makes sense and it plays well," RedOctane's Charles Huang told CNET.
Bring on the peripherals
, RedOctane. The more ridiculous the better. We're already pretending we're playing guitar
on the DS-- we don't need to look dignified doing it.
