Guitar Hero heads to Wii and DS

Spong reports that the publisher has vowed to significantly increase its support for both Wii and DS throughout its next financial year, with Activision president Mike Griffith confirming the following in a conference call:

“In fiscal 2008 we will double our offerings on the DS and the Wii, including Spider-Man, Shrek, Transformers, and Guitar Hero. The key difference in our strategy versus the prior cycle is that in addition to full support on Sony and Microsoft platforms, we will aggressively target the Nintendo platforms consistent with our multi-platform strategy and Nintendo’s expected growth.”

Whilst the arrival of Spider-Man, Transformers and Shrek is good news for Nintendo owners, it’s the mention of Guitar Hero that sparks the imagination.

Whether the Wii version would use Nintendo’s remote or a guitar controller like the existing PS2 iteration is yet to be seen, whilst the possibilities for the DS version are obvious.
