Eidos has announced a new Nintendo DS rhythm-action title with Looney Tunes: Cartoon Concerto
, in development by Amaze Entertainment (Call of Duty: Roads to Victory
) for a June 2008 release.
The title uses the DS stylus to conduct the music to Looney Tunes cartoon scenes, featuring characters like Bugs Bunny, Porky Pig, Daffy Duck, Sylvester the Cat and Tweety.
The game will feature numbered circles to be tapped in time to the music, unmistakably similar to the core gameplay of iNiS's Elite Beat Agents
. Once players successfully recreate the Looney Tunes scenes, they are rewarded with clips from the cartoons.
Eidos brand manager Richard Lassiter commented, "This is a game for absolutely everybody who enjoys simple but addictive gameplay. The DS is the perfect console for this type of pick-up-and-play game, and Looney Tunes: Cartoon Concerto
is the best way to relive those classic Looney Tunes moments."
