Band Hero ships on November 3 for a wide variety of platforms, including your home consoles like the Wii, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360. But when it comes to the Nintendo DS this fall, it brings along its own peripheral — the drum grip.
Activision went to an shopping mall to show it off and shot this trailer which is mostly a bunch of girls giggling about how “omg, they can totally play Band Hero.” Then there’s like one guy who can confirm that the game features all of the stuff you’d hear on the radio, because he listens to the radio like, all of the time. Then, there’s this girl with the big hair, who… well… I’ll leave that one alone.
I haven’t had a chance to try out the Drum Grip, but I have to be honest, I’m kind of interested in seeing how it feels. The Guitar Grip cramped my hands a bit, but it did the job pretty well, otherwise. Plus, I’m a huge fan of Avril Lavigne.
