San Francisco headquartered developer Hands-On Mobile (WPT Texas Hold ‘Em, Duckshot) has announced an agreement with Activision to bring the Guitar Hero franchise to mobile devices. Since its launch in 2005, Guitar Hero has become a popular console game series, with Guitar Hero II topping the charts as the best-selling console game in dollars for the U.S. for the month of December, according to The NPD Group. With Guitar Hero, Hands-On Mobile expands its portfolio of Activision franchises, which includes the Call of Duty series. Previously, Hands-On had announced the HOMBRE development platform. "Guitar Hero is an epic game experience that has mushroomed into a cultural phenomenon," said Erik Pavelka, Vice President of Business Development, Hands-On Mobile. "We are thrilled to bring this award-winning franchise to mobile and to continue our successful relationship with Activision." "The lifestyle of music is strongly immersed into our everyday culture, and having Guitar Hero on mobile platforms will now allow our dedicated fans the opportunity to passionately feel the music, anytime and anywhere," said Dusty Welch, head of publishing at RedOctane. "Hands-On Mobile has extensive experience and success in bringing established franchises to mobile devices, and we greatly look forward to extending the Guitar Hero brand to mobile users."
