Don't cry for Wii, Ninty gamers
Before Wii shuffles off to the back room to be replaced by its more modern, flashy and powerful successor, it has a few more months as Nintendo's current generation home console. While the release schedule is looking rather bare, fans of singing and dancing on the console may have one final curtain call before the actions shifts to Wii U.
Andrew Lloyd Webber Musical: Sing & Dance has been announced by Koch media, and is set to hit the stage from 14th September onwards: it's unclear at the time of writing whether this is a PAL-only or worldwide release. Featuring singing and dancing modes alongside a career mode that combines the two, this title will take many of the biggest hits from the legendary musical writer and squeeze them onto one disc. There's certainly plenty of material in the back catalogue, and if you want full details check out the press release below.
