Moero! Nekketsu Rhythm Damashii: Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan 2 is a Nintendo DS video game by iNiS that was published by Nintendo and released in 2007. The game is the successor to the 2005 game Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, also released for the DS. The series' only release in Western territories is Elite Beat Agents, which was never released in Japan due to the heavy Western influences found within it. The game has Rumble Pak support when playing it on a Nintendo DS or DS Lite. The Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, and any Nintendo 3DS don't feature this feature due to the omission of the Game Boy Advance slot where the Rumble Pak was supposed to be inserted. The game contains the same features as the original, with enhanced gameplay, new scenarios and new songs.
