“Guitar Hero created a unique and strong link between music and videogames. It was a natural step that this great concept would come to the Nintendo DS, which itself has attracted millions of new players to the world of videogames, comments Laurent Fischer, Managing Director of Marketing & PR of Nintendo of Europe. “We know this title will provide another new and original way to be entertained on the go”
