Ouendan 2 set to bring more rhythm-action genius to DS.
Ouendan 2, the sequel to the Japanese-only rhythm-action game that was so popular they ported it for us, is in the works according to Dengeki Online.
Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2, is the full Japanese name, which Google's translation tool hilariously interprets as "Burn! Thermal blood rhythm soul Pushing patience! Fighting obtaining! Cheer group 2."
Other internet translations came up with "OtherBurn! Fervorous Spirit of Rhythm! Go! Fight! Cheer Squad 2" and various other seeming random babblings.
Whatever the title, the catchy tunes and crazy characters of the original Japanese Ouendan earned it a huge cult following in the West and is considered one of the best games on DS by those in the import scene. The game was later adapted over here and released under the name Elite Beat Agents.
The first one looked fun and addicting even though I never played from first hand. I don't know why though but after ten minutes of someone playing it it looked boring. But one question remains, what will be the difference between part one and the new to be released part 2?
I dunno, maybe new dance moves? New music? Maybe the guys that dance will have new hairstyles and moves, maybe even a new coloured suit. Well, we could only hope. But seriously, I think if you played the first one, you just played the second one as well.
