‘Gleeks’ will have something to sing about this spring with the release of the second installment of Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2 for Wii. It was today announce the critically-acclaimed Karaoke Revolution franchise will return with an all-new lineup, featuring 20 of the best songs and show moments from part two of Season One from the award-winning hit television series.
Hot off the heels of the original smash hit, Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2 will let gamers once again feel like part of the world’s most popular glee club – New Directions – as they sing alongside their favorite characters. Players will be able to take the mic and belt out “Gives you Hell” alongside Rachel, pose with Kurt as he performs Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance,” or shake the rafters with Mercedes when she brings down the house in “Like a Prayer,” and more. ‘Gleeks’ can also expect some new faces, including songs sung by the Vocal Adrenaline heartbreaker, Jesse St. James! To top it all off, the game will also feature extended performances and exclusive clips from the show offering fans excellent video montages and never-before-seen show moments.
“We knew that GLEE fans were unbelievably passionate and loyal, but even we were surprised by the overwhelming success of the first Karaoke Revolution Glee title and the demand for the follow-up,” said Shinji Hirano, President of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “Well, now ‘Gleeks’ have their wish. With this new game they can perform even more of the hits that have made the show such a runaway success.”
“The close and personal connection that comes with a GLEE videogame is unparalleled. This next installment to the Karaoke Revolution Glee franchise will allow us to bring fans even closer to the music, the storylines and the characters that they’ve come to love,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President, New Media for Fox Consumer Products. “It’s also going to feature some of the hottest musical numbers the show has ever produced, so fans will have a lot to look forward to.”
In addition to Karaoke Revolution’s proprietary voice recognition technology, which accurately recognizes and scores vocal pitch and rhythm, Volume 2 comes fully equipped with all-new audio features and voice applications. A newly added vibrato indicator will help players hit those high notes and improve their vocal skills, while independent volume controls are available to adjust the vocal and instrumental noise levels on each track depending on the singer’s preference. For a truly unique performance, players can also add vocal effects to every song. Additionally, as new achievements are reached, gamers can unlock themed GLEE items to collect in Scrapbook Mode.
Karaoke Revolution Glee: Volume 2 is slated to release this spring exclusively for Wii.
