Konami Digital Entertainment GmbH has joined forces with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products to bring original content from the award-winning hit television series GLEE to Konami’s famed Karaoke Revolution franchise.
Karaoke Revolution Glee, set to release in the Autumn for Wii TM , will feature the chart-topping music and captivating performances from one of the most talked about shows of the year. The game will give fans the chance to enter the role of the ultimate underdog as they perform the songs featured on the show.
In Karaoke Revolution Glee, fans can play alongside their favorite GLEE characters including the infamous Rachel Berry, football star Finn Hudson, and the GLEE club's fearless leader, Will Schuester. Performing some of the most memorable sequences from Season One, players can belt out 35 chart-topping hits and tunes from the popular TV series. Millions of fans have made GLEE one of the leading musical franchises of our time. “Gleeks” both young and old will now get their chance to engross themselves in their favourite show like never before. In multiplayer singing games, Gleeks can either sing in harmonies or choose to sing as a duet, creating the kind of performance that not even Sue Sylvester can resist!
As an added bonus, unlockable content will be available in a special gameplay mode where gamers can unlock memorable show moments from Season One. Karaoke Revolution Glee will also utilise Karaoke Revolution’s proprietary voice recognition technology, which accurately recognises and scores vocal pitch and rhythm, helping gamers reach those hard hitting notes and perfect their harmonies!
“This partnership with Fox is very important to us and we are thrilled to be the first to bring GLEE to a video game console!” said Kunio Neo, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, GmbH. “We plan to elevate the Karaoke Revolution franchise even further by giving fans a chance to pick up the mic and interact with their favourite characters, themes and music from one of the most popular TV franchises to date.”
“This is the kind of game that GLEE fans -or ‘Gleeks’ as they’re affectionately known - have been waiting for. We all know they’ve been singing along with their favourite characters during the show, and this game will let them rack up points in the process,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President, New Media for Fox Consumer Products. “This partnership also reflects our on-going strategy to develop GLEE as a long-term brand at retail.”
Karoke Revolution Glee will be released for Wii TM in Autumn. For more information, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 0207 502 4462, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
