RedOctane and Nintendo Team Up for a Guitar Hero DS Bundle
Like playing a small novelty accordion
Starting June 22, Specialty silver and black DSes branded with the Guitar Hero logo will be making their way to stores bundled with the latest Guitar Hero game, "On Tour", as part of a limited-time promotion.
"This one-of-a-kind bundle makes Nintendo DS even more appealing to our ever-growing audience of players," said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "Like Nintendo DS itself, the Guitar Hero franchise has attracted millions of new players to the world of video games."
"We are thrilled to be the first third-party publisher to partner with Nintendo on this unique offering," said Dusty Welch, Head of Publishing for RedOctane. "With the Guitar Hero-branded Nintendo DS and our Guitar Hero: On Tour game and peripheral, this amazing bundle delivers gamers a complete Guitar Hero experience they can enjoy anytime, anywhere."
Seems like there's some new version of the DS out every month or so these days. If someone really were inclined to buy a new one just for Guitar Hero, though, I can't see them going with any color other than black, especially with the Guitar Grip peripheral being the same color. Anything else just feels wrong somehow.
