EL SEGUNDO, Calif.– October 31, 2012– Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the famed franchise KARAOKE JOYSOUND, has made its North American debut and is available in retail stores nationwide. KARAOKE JOYSOUND, already a hit game in Japan, is ready to take the United States by storm by giving players an expansive song list, fun mini-games and high-energy singing along with avatar customization. Unlike other karaoke games, KARAOKE JOYSOUND uses an "on-demand" subscription service, giving players immediate access to over 1,000 hit song renditions to stream directly onto their Wii™ console.
KARAOKE JOYSOUND brings out the inner crooner, boasting over 30 songs across all genres available on the disc. From there, players maximize their karaoke experience by accessing KARAOKE JOYSOUND's music streaming service online via their Wii internet connection. Users can "rent" the entire music library for a day, three days or even a month at a time. With over 1,000 songs in the music library, KARAOKE JOYSOUND is perfect for parties, family get-togethers or the aspiring singer to hone in on their skills.
KARAOKE JOYSOUND's on-disc music list includes chart-topping songs of today and hits from the past, including song renditions such as:
SONGS - MADE FAMOUS BY:
Material Girl - Madonna
Womanizer - Britney Spears
It's Raining Men - The Weather Girls
One Less Lonely Girl - Justin Bieber
Get Back - Demi Lovato
All Star - Smash Mouth
Celebration - Kool&The Gang
KARAOKE JOYSOUND is more than just the music. Inside, awaits fun mini-games for players singing and watching, allowing them to play alongside multiple friends, using the Wii remote in interactive games using the microphone and your voice.
This immersive experience essentially gives people the chance to create their own karaoke party in middle of their living rooms.
In addition to one of the largest song libraries on Wii, KARAOKE JOYSOUND also allows players to enjoy extensive customizations across the game. These features give players an additional level of individuality as in-game points are awarded as currency, so the better the performance, the more points players accumulate to spend on customizing everything from personal aesthetics (hair, outfits, etc) to stages and backgrounds.
KARAOKE JOYSOUND is made exclusively on Wii and is available in retail stores nationwide for $29.99 software only and $39.99 bundled with a microphone. For more information, including the new trailer and screenshots, log on to www.konami.com/karaokejoysound.
