Nordic Games will fight to top the Wii karaoke market this summer with We Sing Encore.
The game features 40 new songs that span rock, pop, rap and R&B, from artists such as Coldplay, Black Eyed Peas, Elton John, Lady GaGa and more.
Encore is due for launch around the same time as Mindscape’s U-Sing: Girls Night.
“We Sing Encore takes the central premise of We Sing and builds upon it in every way,” said Nordic Games’ sales and marketing director Nik Blower.
“With free rein to pick any song from any label, we’ve come up with what we think is the best line-up on Nintendo Wii. And the addition of 10 tracks exclusive to the English, Swedish and German versions will ensure players in those markets will benefit from even more of their favourite tracks.
“With major improvements and more tracks, We Sing Encore represents incredible value for money, and will once again prove that we’re the only karaoke game on Nintendo Wii that has such a broad, mainstream appeal.”
Nordic Games says that the title will be backed by a monster marketing campaign, including a celebrity-packed launch event, a heavyweight TV ad push as well as sponsorship of the VIP areas at some of this summer’s festivals.
Other new additions to We Sing Encore include a singing lessons area, a ‘real-karaoke’ mode and a jukebox mode.
The entire game engine has been overhauled, and now boasts a visual makeover, anti-lag features and HDTV support.
We Sing Encore will launch for Nintendo Wii in July.
