Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has announced it will return to the singing genre, with the advent of Karaoke Revolution®, an all-new sing-along title for PLAYSTATION®3 and Wii which will be released in November.

Developed by Blitz Games, Karaoke Revolution allows up to 16 players to get together and take each other on in singing contests in an ongoing quest for fame! The game is perfect as either a solo game or a multi-player get-together.

The new game offers 50 licensed tracks. For the first time, Karaoke Revolution will offer five hits from the Jackson 5 and Michael Jackson– including the number one hits´I'll Be There´ and´ABC´. The Jackson 5 songs will be accompanied by their original album artwork and commemorative themed videos.

Karaoke Revolution offers a number of key game modes, including a Party option for 16 users, which allows participants to compete against each other and create bespoke playlists. The PLAYSTATION®3 version will also feature wide-ranging online play, allowing users to compete with rival singers from all over the globe and download additional tracks in the future.

Solo players can also enjoy Career Mode, wherein players can create their own on-screen persona and lead them to singing glory. During the user’s career, players start in a series of smaller venues, before unlocking bigger stages and accessories. Karaoke Revolution has ten new venues, each boasting elaborate themes and special effects, with amazing pyrotechnics and visual effects designed to complement the onscreen action. Similarly, players can customize the venues, and even play music videos behind their character on a jumbo screen!

Karaoke Revolution enjoys compatibility with most available wireless and USB microphones, and the PLAYSTATION®3 version enjoys full use of the PlayStation Eye camera.
