Wednesday 8 th June 2011: Nordic Games Publishing has today confirmed another new We Sing game coming this year; We Sing Rock! will be the fifth title to be released in the UK and eighth overall in PAL territories.
We Sing Rock! will feature some never-before-featured classic rock songs alongside current headbangers. Covering four incredible decades of music, the tracklist is shaping up to be one of the greatest collections of rock songs on a singing game ever.
“Although the We Sing range has a great selection of music across its portfolio, there are fans who have been crying out for a rock-focused karaoke game for Wii,” says Nik Blower, sales and marketing director, Nordic Games.“We Sing Rock! will open up the We Sing brand to gamers who prefer singing to music with drums and a classic guitar’s riff.”
We Sing Rock! will feature a testosterone filled tracklist, with 40 sing-a-long rock anthems, the majority of which include the original videos. Each track has its own rating and can be played in short or full length song modes.
Fun for all the family, We Sing is the only singing series of games to support four players in any Party mode, using four separate microphones. Party mode includes We Sing, Versus, Group Battle, Pass The Mic, First to X, Marathon, Blind and Expert.
There’s also Solo mode and Karaoke mode, which strips the track of vocals to really challenge players, or those that fancy an authentic karaoke experience.
Other features include Singing Lessons to help singers fine tune their voices and a Jukebox to queue up songs like their own personal music channel.
In-game awards come from playing either single or multiplayer modes, adding further depth and replay value to We Sing Rock!. Plus, once a track has been sung, players can replay performances and add cool effects to their voice.
More points come thanks to Star Notes which provides extra points for hitting hard notes and Player Statistics give a detailed breakdown on performance on notes hit and missed with a comment on your performance at the end.
More information including full tracklist and release date will be announced in coming months.
Nordic Games has also announced We Sing UK Hits offering the best of British music spanning an incredible six decades of music, We Sing Pop!, and We Sing America (exclusive to the US audience). We Sing UK Hits! will be playable at Nordic Games’ stand at E3– Concourse Room 8005. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment and to reserve your review pack.
