Ouendan 2 shown. New gameplay features, new characters (a rival Ouendan group), no footage but some screenshots. Includes features designed for hardcore players.

Done? Where are our screens??? And damn Nintendo for rejecting the platformer, I want to see something new from iNiS too, I hope their Wii game is original.

Did I hear someone say "Where are the shitty, off-angle, grainy snaps no better than Famitsu scans?" RIGHT HERE.

:lol

So the blog was right, it does look exactly like the first game.

EBA 2

OUENDAN WII

Ouendan VS EBA


AWESOME!!!
As much as I would love to see those games, I hope that Nintendo won't turn these guys into the "Ouendan Studio" like they turned Retro into the "Metroid Studio". I'd hate to see them tire of their creation and leave the industry.

Exactly, plus Ouendan wouldn't work on Wii.

Gitaroo Man wouldn't work on the DS, which is why they made Ouendan. I doubt they'll just port the game over; maintaining the IP doesn't mean keeping the gameplay exactly the same.

Despite these games being published by Nintendo, I'm pretty sure Nintendo has no hold in iNis. They did put out Gitaroo Man Lives on the PSP last year.

If they did Ouendan instead of Gitaroo Man, why wouldn't they just do a new IP instead of changing Ouendan?

Good job 1up. If I could only play Ouendan/EBA games from now on I'd die a happy gamer.
Great to hear EBA2 might be on the cards, definitely thought the poor sales would have put the kibosh on that. Hopefully Ouendan 2 will get the sales it so richly deserves.

Are you saying Ouendan is Gitaroo-Man on the DS? Anyway, I actually would like them to tackle a new genre on the Wii.

Awww, I was hoping the blue squad was evil and cheered for the people to fail! The Jeer squad! Oh well. I can't wait. And I'd imagine a Wii Ouendan would be like Wii music, where you wave the wiimote at the right time. Plus it'd probably need to be in a certain direction so you'd be simulating the cheers (dancing for EBAWii).

An Ouendan Vs EBA would be neat too.

Sure, they might have starved or gotten electrocuted for a bit.. but those animals didn't get run over by a train if you didn't perform. :p

Donahoe did a nice job with the blog, there was no WiFi in the room and we have a lack of mobile cards at Ziff towers.
Oh, so Donahoe wrote this blog? Someone go beat him up for this line:
"PSP: Gitaroo Man (boring!). DS: Elite Beat Agents (hot!)"

After his 10 for Hotel Dusk and this quote, I can safely discredit anything he ever says in the future.

Otherwise, good coverage.

he probably meant it was boring because it was already done once
