Guitar Hero: Modern Hits DS confirmed

25 tracks, fan requests.

Activision has confirmed that the rumoured Guitar Hero: Modern Hits is in development at Vicarious Visions, although its release date is still to be confirmed.

The publisher said today that it would consist of 25 master tracks from the likes of Coldplay, Fall Out Boy, Tenacious D, The Strokes and Weezer.

There's also a Fan Request system that "challenges players to jam like never before", by completing tasks fans demand like jamming in Hyperspeed, doing a Guitar Duel with active Bomb Notes or whammying every held note.

So far we've been told about two of the five venues: Rusty Rocco's and Casino Vicarious. The former kicks off with Wolfmother's "Dimension", Coldplay's "Violet Hill" and Lenny Kravitz's "Where Are We Running'" before the headline acts open: Evanescence's "Sweet Sacrifice", The Strokes' "Reptilia" and The Bravery's "Unconditional".

Then in Casino Vicarious you get to play Fall Out Boy's "This Ain't A Scene", Weezer's "Everybody Get Dangerous", The Kaiser Chiefs' "Ruby", 12 Stones' "Adrenaline", Tenacious D's "The Metal" and Atreyu's "Falling Down".

There's no word from Activision yet about whether it's come up with a new, DSi-compatible peripheral to replace the one that plugs into the GBA slot on the DS or DS Lite, but there are some shots of the game in action.

You can check those out in our Guitar Hero: Modern Hits screenshot gallery.
