Elite Beat Agents gameplay video



Elite Beat Agents
, the wacky English version of music-and-rhythm seizure game, Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan!, sees the cheerleaders getting replaced by gyrating secret agents who swoop in whenever people are in need of their rhythmic assistance. In the case of this video (higher resolution version here), they're called upon by a frantic film director struggling to complete his latest masterpiece, "Romancing Meowzilla." Looks like the English variant will be every bit as zany and unpredictable as the Japanese original.

[Thanks, Sense!]

1. Bah, I'd only get it if they kept the original Japanese music, which isn't happening, so I'm not getting it!

Humbug.

2. Ahem Elite Beat Agents is a new game. New story, new characters, new music.

It's basically something that the Japanese fans of Ouendan would import from the US.

Nice to see something interesting coming for the Japanese import market at last.

5. Well, I love Ouendan... love it love it love it... finished it on Cheergirls difficulty and everything. There were two songs in the E3 build of Elite Beat Agents, and while they were only vaguely familiar to me, they in no way ruined the game. They weren't pop tripe... and they fit the storylines as well as the music in Ouendan fit the storylines.

If anything, Elite Beat Agents looks like it'll be more fun, as the text of the comic strips was hilarious (something I can't appreciate in Ouendan not speaking japanese) and the storylines are probably even more off the wall if these two were anything to go by.

Sadly, the game only had easy difficulty, so I can't compare the two just yet, as I'm used to much harder patterns, but the signs are good. It's not Ouendan it's a whole new game that uses the same game dynamic, that looks to have been pulled off with the same style that made Ouendan great in the first place.

Buy both.

6. I'm actually happy they didn't retain the Japanese songs and went for new songs and new scenarios. That way, we'd have 30 unique songs and stages total from Ouendan+EBA.
