"The video is just a demonstration for the game. The Japanese test describes some features of the game, such as 8 people can play off a single cartridge (might want to double-check how true that one is) and that there is a two-button beginner mode."Reader Ian Hammond says,
I don’t know enough about the DS to tell you whether they were indeed playing Diagasso! Band Brothers. However, it warmed my heart to see a bunch of Japanese adults geeking out to an anime intro theme song. If you’re interested, the song is from the recent series “Fullmetal Alchemist,” and I believe the track is titled “MELISSA” (a clip is apparently available on the site I linked). Thanks for making my Friday that much happier!
