Elite Beat Agents 2 announced, fingers everywhere blister

Nintendo has just released its 2007 Japanese release schedule. Very obvious tickets like Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl for the Wii make appearances, but the biggest surprise has to be the inclusion of Ouendan 2 for the DS. The original Ouendan (released as Elite Beat Agents here in the States) was nothing short of brilliant and easily one of my favorite games for the Nintendo handheld.

Although a sequel seemed inevitable, this news is still just as sweet as it is unexpected. Assuming that the follow-up is brought to America, Elite Beat Agents 2 has just become one of my most anticipated games of the coming year (wiping up drool). No specific release date was mentioned (other than 2007), but four-player multiplayer was confirmed. Hit the jump for the entire list.
