Elite Beat Agents is a rhythm game for the Nintendo DS. In Korea, the game is called Dowajweo! Rhythm Hero. The idea for the game came after surprisingly high import rates for Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan. Afraid that the Japanese culture references would be lost on the Western audience, they made Elite Beat Agents for the Western market. In an effort to give the game more attention to an expanded audience, Nintendo marketed the game under it's Touch Generations label.

Story

The Elite Beat Agents are members of a government agency for helping people out. When someone is at the end of their rope and yells for help, the Elite Beat Agents appear. They help indirectly by motivating the person with their singing and dancing.

Gameplay

The game is made up of different episodes. In each episode, there is a person who needs help. The Elite Beat Agents motivate him with song and dance.

On the bottom screen, various markers appear. The player must tap, drag, or spin the markers in time to the music to keep the Elite Meter up. If the Elite Meter is empty, the player has failed that stage. Each stage has several different endings depending on how well the player did.

The game tracks the players high score on each stage as well as giving them a cumulative rank. There are unlockable stages for those who achieve a certain rank.

The game also uses the Wi-Fi connect for a Multiplayer Mode. Players can compete or work together.
