Users Keep the Beat with This Over-the-Top Touch Generations Rhythm Game
REDMOND, Wash., Nov. 6, 2006 - Nintendo's Elite Beat Agents™ are international men of mystery, but the only licenses they carry are licenses to boogie. This Nintendo DS™ game is all about the music with a branching storyline: The more accurately players can tap to rhythmic pop music patterns on the touch screen, the better the story turns out. It's a crazy mix of music, dancing and madness that has already received rave reviews - and it's available in North America on Nov. 8.
Coupled with a collection of quirky story lines and hilarious characters, Elite Beat Agents boasts a number of popular tunes, including "Rock This Town," "Walkie Talkie Man," "Material Girl," "Jumpin' Jack Flash" and more.

It's a head-bopping, toe-tapping phenomenon made portable just in time for the holidays.

"It offers a one-of-a-kind game experience that appeals to everyone, from first-time players to hard-core gamers, making it an ideal fit for our Touch Generations brand, which includes games and experiences that anyone can easily pick up and play."
Elite Beat Agents follows the riotous exploits of three secret agents who help people overcome everyday problems by infusing their targets with "groovy" energy. Whether the mission is to help a lost dog find his way home or aid a babysitter in charming a hunky football player, people of all ages will be lured in by the game's fun and amusing story lines. After all, who wouldn't want the chance to save the day? So, get out your DS Lite because ... "AGENTS ARE GO!"
