More 'Hero' Games Without Guitars Likely 105

In light of the popularity of the Guitar Hero game, Next Generation reports that it is very likely RedOctane will be publishing several more 'Hero' series games. From the article: "The next logical step within this category is to make other music instrument-based games. What most people have been asking for and would want next are products that we're likely already working on."

    We've had all this stuff in Japan for awhile now.. The guitar game hooks up with the drum game (that's a full drum set, single-pedal) which also hooks up to the DJ game (turn table + 9 buttons). There's also the Taiko Drum game, but that's wholly separate. Some of the people on the drum set are ridiculous. They bring their own sticks and bust out these crazy power songs. I can't even see the things moving on the screen, but they rack up combos in the thousands like it was nothing at all.

    Note: I don't see this happening in the US. We also have Pop'N Music 10 or 11 here, which is a really popular arcade game with 9 circular "bubble" buttons that are to be hit just like any rhythm game. The thing is, the coordination and concentration that game and the drum game require is incredible. Once you get past 6 or 7 possible inputs, you might as well just learn to play an actual instrument.
