A 3DS version, titled ''Daigasso! Band Brothers P'', was released in 2013 in Japan only. It added vocal support using Music/{{Vocaloid}} technology, the ability to publish creations onto [=YouTube=], and online play. However, songs available in-game require "[[{{Microtransactions}} tomatoes]]" to download. In December 2019, Nintendo took the game off of the eShop and online services for this game specifically shut down the following May.

''Jam With The Band'' is a RhythmGame for the NintendoDS, released in Japan in 2008 and Europe in 2010. It is the sequel to the 2005 game ''Daigasso! Band Brothers''.

The gameplay is mostly typical Rhythm Game fare, requiring you to hit buttons in time with the displayed notes, but unlike most Rhythm Games, your errors are directly reflected in the sound of the music, because unlike most rhythm games, you aren't just hitting notes, you're literally playing the music. Not to mention being able to play any instrument within the song.

The game includes a song creator, which lets you create your own compositions and renditions of your favorite songs in {{MIDI}} format, allowing for a fully customizable soundtrack, supplemented by the 50 pack-in songs and DLC song server, allowing up to 50 songs (100 in the Japanese version) to be downloaded from Wi-Fi.

!!These games provide examples of:

* BadExportForYou: The Japanese version of JWTB allows you to download 100 songs from Wi-Fi. The European version limits you to just 50.
* CopyProtection: JWTB and DBBDX have a copy protection system set in place that prohibits users running pirated copies of the game from downloading songs from Wi-Fi. Two years after the Japanese release of the game, and this still hasn't been cracked, and will likely never be cracked due to the nature of the copy protection.
** Also, JWTB does not work on emulators.
* DevelopmentHell: DBB was originally intended for the GameBoyColor, but was moved to the GameBoyAdvance by the time Nintendo unveiled it in 2001; it was delayed, and moved to the NintendoDS.
* DifficultySpike: Pro mode separates the men from the boys, requiring you to use eight of the DS' buttons, in comparison to the four of Amateur Mode. Interestingly enough, the transition between Pro and Master mode has the fewest added buttons - only two, but is ''much'' harder than Pro mode.
* DownloadableContent
* EasierThanEasy: Beginner mode lets you hit any button on the DS to play a note and even has a larger timing window.
* ExpansionPack: The original DBB got an expansion pack in the form of a GBA cartridge that added 31 more songs.
* [[{{Feelies}} Feelies]]: The Japanese version of the original DBB didn't have a normal manual, it had three ''posters'' that had the manual on the backside, and original print copies of the game came with earbud headphones.
* GratuitousEnglish The Japanese version of both games has Engrish ALL OVER THE PLACE.
* LevelEditor: The song creator, of course.
* MarthDebutedInSmashBros: Barbara the Bat, the main character in DBB was an Assist Trophy in SuperSmashBros Brawl long before her game was released anywhere outside Japan.
** She was also in Master of Illusion, another DS game that ''was'' released overseas.
* NintendoHard: While some songs can be easy to moderate in difficulty, some songs can be downright impossible.
* NoExportForYou: Despite the original DBB getting a tentative title (Jam With the Band, in fact) in America shortly after the launch of the DS, the project was eventually canceled. To this date, the original game has only been released in Japan, and the sequel only in Japan and Europe.
