Look, we know that Guitar Hero has been pretty much smacked down for an undetermined period of time, but a new report is that Activision is planning to bring the series back at the latest on Nintendo’s freshly revealed console, the Wii U. The latest rumor comes from everyone’s favorite “industry analyst,” Michael Pachter.
According to Pachter, he was talking to “the guy who runs Guitar Hero” when the proverbial beans were spilled.
“I walked out with the guy who runs Guitar Hero. And I said, ‘I can’t believe that that’s not on Wii U, and he goes ‘It’ll be on Wii U, but we’re not gonna announce that yet.’ And so there you go.”
The report also claims that after that conversation, Pachter apologized to that source that he anonymously cited. The “guy” who apparently gave Pachter the information is only known as “Dave.” We pretty much knew that Hero would be making a return in 2012, as the hints dropped by Activision had the subtlety of a carpet bombing, but it’s always nice to hear more information and rumors in regards to Activision still thinking about our lovely little IP.
More information is sure to come soon, perhaps even at E3, since that still has plenty of time left before that wraps up. So does this give you hope for more Hero in the near future? How do you think Activision will utilize the power/features of the Wii U in order to capitalize upon the functionality of the new console?
