Encore? But we didn't hear anyone clapping...
We Sing Encore is a game about singing. It is not, however, a game about singing well. The game is a sequel to 2009's We Sing, and as the new title suggests, it is really just more of the same, meaning more competitive karaoke for up to four players with 40 new tracks. The game sees you singing along to...
We Sing Encore will be available in July 2010, and will include 40 great new songs the majority of which feature their original videos.
The songs span pop, rock, rap and R&B, and bring together party classics such as Love Shack (B52s), contemporary hits like Fight For This Love (Cheryl Cole), crowd-pleasers like Don't Stop Movin' (S Club 7), hip-hop hits like Shut Up (Black Eyed Peas) and housewives' favourite I'm Too Sexy (Right Said Fred).
We Sing Encore introduces a host of additions to the best-selling original. A single-player reward system will offer soloists a stimulating challenge, whilst groups can opt for competitive or co-operative achievements designed to reward the very best performances. The addition of a 'real karaoke' mode offers the greatest challenge, removing backing vocals entirely. Other gameplay enhancements include the introduction of 'Star Notes' and a new jukebox mode allowing non-stop music. Technically, the entire engine has been overhauled, boasting HDTV support, specific anti-lag features and an impressive visual makeover.
Can't sing? Don't worry: the new singing lessons area will teach players how to sing like professionals. And those who fancy messing around will enjoy playing back their own performances and adding voice effects in real-time.
