on November 9, 2012 10:41 PM

For gamers who have played Rock Band, Karaoke Revolution, or SingStar, SiNG PARTY is the Wii U’s first karaoke videogame, set to release at launch along with the Wii U on November 18.

The Songs

SiNG PARTY is coming out with a wide, wide range of music from many different genres and eras, with a focus on “creating the best party atmosphere for both singing and dancing.” Artists included will be current pop stars like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, The Wanted, and Selena Gomez & The Scene, and past music stars like James Brown, the Jackson 5, the Village People.

Gameplay

SiNG PARTY will make use of the GamePad by allowing the “lead singers” to read the lyrics off of the small screen and move around the room to face their audience. The audience can join in with the lead singer, sing the background vocals, and dance along with the moves on their TV screen.

In Sing Mode, players will be judged–solo, duets, or in competitive–by their vocal quality and scored on the TV in real time. So yes, you will have your own Wii U version of Simon Cowell built into your system.

Other Info

SiNG PARTY will be released at a retail price of $59.99 and will include a microphone. The game is also available for download directly from the Nintendo eShop for $49.99, but without the microphone provided. The good thing is that the game is compatible with all licensed Wii microphones, with new microphones available at a suggested retail of $24.99.
