No touch screen feature for Guitar Hero DS

In what can only be described as very questionable judgment, Vicarious Visions, developers of Guitar Hero DS, have opted against use of the touchscreen for the game. According to Wii News:

Unlike in Ubisoft’s guitar simulator Jam Sessions, which has players using the stylus to strum on-screen strings, Guitar Hero DS won’t use the touch screen as a primary input at all, revealed design manager, Adrian Earle.

Then, there may be a silver lining to this cloud. The exclusion of touchscreen functionality might indicate that there will be a bundled peripheral of some sort to fill the gap. Maybe we’ll end up with a twisted Frankenstein’s monster of a DS controller, with a grafted on fret board and some other method of strumming the thing. Then again, probably not. We’ll see come 2008.
