If you enjoy singing along with your games and have a Wii, you are in luck as Konami have now released Karaoke Joysound to the masses. Made famous in Japan, this title lets players not only have access to a huge song library, but customize their avatars and play mini-games.
Here is a bit more information from the publisher themselves:
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
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.
I don’t know how I feel about “renting” a song for a game, but this concept is certainly unique and should attract that casual music loving audience quite quickly. You can find Karaoke Joysound on the Wii as of today.
