Over in the US, the CTIA Wireless expo is a-happening, and the lucky folk at CNet have made us green with envy, as they got to fool around on the new Guitar Hero Mobile game.
The mobile version of the game first created for the PS2 is loosely based on Guitar Hero 3, but much more simplified for easy mobile handset usage. There are two characters – Alex Steel and Judy Nails, four guitars, and just 15 songs, however users subscribed to the service can buy three extra songs each month. If you’re wondering how the console game which calls upon use of a guitar peripheral has been adapted to mobile-use, you’ll be pleased to hear the gameplay isn’t too difficult, with only three buttons on the phone controlling the frets of the guitar.
Sadly it hasn’t as yet been announced for UK users, so don’t go getting excited about playing Iron Man when on the bus home, but our friends in the US can purchase the game from Verizon Wireless in December. Oh well, at least we’ve got Guitar Hero on the DS to look forward to…
