Players help the JONAS band members juggle concerts, school, friends and fans to find the balance between their rock star world and ordinary lives. VP of Marketing: 'JONAS is the perfect complement to the hit television show, giving fans additional access to the Jonas Brothers as they portray the Lucas Brothers, their music, their fashion and their lives.
The game delivers a blend of adventure, humor and music that will keep fans
of the Jonas Brothers entertained and engaged this holiday season.' The game features other main characters from the show, including good friends Macy and Stella, and lets fans explore familiar locations including the brother's firehouse and school as seen in the television show.
Players can also customize the JONAS band members' wardrobe for their daytime antics, as well as cool outfits for when they take the stage. JONAS allows players to collect musical notes to power up their guitars and then..
..strike the right guitar chords to overcome obstacles and help JONAS band members. The game also features hit songs the show. Fans will be able to perform to the songs in concerts after each level is completed.
JONAS includes access to DGamer, the online community exclusively for Disney gamers on the Nintendo DS, allowing them to chat with other players and unlock additional items in their game. JONAS will be available this fall for Nintendo DS. Will YOU play it?
Jonas Brothers' JONAS moving from Saturdays to Sundays, according to NYDN: Just weeks into its run with the new show JONAS, Disney Channel
has moved original episodes from Saturday to Sunday.
The show, while doing okay in the Nielsens against super-tough Nickelodeon fare on Saturdays, hasn't set the ratings on fire nor even come close to matching the excitement the Jonas Brothers have gained before.
Until late last week, Disney had JONAS scheduled for Saturday, but viewers instead found the film 'Cars.'
A Disney spokeswoman said the network usually airs a summer schedule from Memorial weekend through August, and the JONAS move was part of that plan.
Starting this weekend, films will fill Saturdays, and comedy series Fridays and Sunday: 'In addition to its Sunday airing, JONAS will be seen in other time slots throughout the summer to provide viewers an opportunity to sample the series.'

Jonas Brothers new single 'Paranoid' isn't faring as well as it should on Radio Disney or on mainstream raido.
The song has yet to hit the Top 40 of pop radio in its third week in release.
Radio Disney has the song at #20 on their official countdown and is more interested in playing 'Live to Party.'
On iTunes, the song has been in and out of the Top 100, sitting at #91. Disney is not panicking even though their 3D concert film didn't match expectations and new episodes of their JONAS series on Disney Channel continuously get beat out in the ratings by Nickelodeon shows.
With an upcoming tour spanning three continents and the new album hitting stores in June, the band could be feeling the pressure. Nick said, 'We're all about taking those gradual steps. Kev, 'We definitely have no expectations.'
End of one of the biggest brother bands in teen pop history? Johnny
Wright: 'People are wrong when they say the bubble has burst. It's just changing. We are focused on longevity and transitioning to a slightly older audience. When you do that, you risk losing some of your core fan base.'
