Guitar Hero: On Tour is a music video game for the Nintendo DS. As the name implies, it is part of the Guitar Hero video game series and the first released for the DS. It is noted as the highest priced retailed Nintendo DS game at $49.99 USD. It doesn't include a guitar, but rather an enlarged game cartridge that features four (rather than the usual five) buttons that the player can press. The player is required to hold the DS on its side as if you were reading a book (ala Brain Age and Hotel Dusk: Room 215), while the four buttons will be featured on the side where the Game Boy Advance slot is.

In the fall of 2008, Nintendo announced and released a second redesign of the Nintendo DS called the Nintendo DSi. The DSi was soon thereafter confirmed to not include a cartridge slot for Game Boy Advance video games, thus meaning that the accessory required to play Guitar Hero: On Tour and its sequels, which was released after the announcement, would not be compatible with it, much to Activision's dismay. This is also the same for the Nintendo DSi XL and any Nintendo 3DS. As a result, only the original Nintendo DS and Nintendo DS Lite were compatible with playing the game.
