Sing Your Way to Stardom on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi with Just SING!

PQube has today announced that Just SING!, the first karaoke game to be released on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi, will launch on 3rd December 2010 and will be available from all major retailers with an RRP of£29.99.

Published by dtp young entertainment and developed by Engine Software, Just SING! boasts 18 original songs from chart topping artists including Lady Gaga, Nelly Furtado, Timbaland featuring OneRepublic and many more. In Just SING! players take their first steps towards musical stardom in the single player career mode story. Players start with nothing and must improve their performances in order to progress from playing small town bars through medium clubs to, ultimately, performing on some of the biggest stages in the world.

Rob Noble, PR and Marketing Manager for PQube, comments:“ Just SING! is the first ever karaoke game on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi and, as such, it brings a popular and fun genre to a portable console. It also, in the process, creates an all new gaming experience for players.” He continues:“We have recognised a big gap in the market in terms of there being a portable,“take anywhere” singing experience, and Just SING! on the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi fills this gap. It’s an innovative take on a popular genre and we think we’ve taken things to a new level.”
