THE FIRST SINGING GAME WITH FOUR MICS, FOUR SINGERS… TOGETHER!

Karlstad, Sweden: Nordic Games Publishing AB today proudly announces We Sing, the first singing game to utilise four microphones, allowing four players to sing at the same time. We Sing will be released in time for the festive season, exclusively for the Wii. It’s not going to be a quiet Christmas day. Now the whole family can sing their hearts out at the same time to their favourite tracks.

Agreements have been made with all the leading record companies including EMI, Warner, Universal Music and many Independent Record Labels to source a diverse selection of quality modern and back catalogue songs from best selling artists.

Christian Svensson, Capcom’s Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development recently answered a question regarding the chances of seeing a new Mega Man Legends game over at Capcom-Unity…

“I can’t really speak on behalf of Inafune, but I do know that MM is near and dear to his heart. And if Inafune wants something badly enough, he is rarely denied in our greenlight/CS management meetings.”

We haven’t seen a true Mega Man Legends game in quite awhile. It’d be interesting to see what a new game would be like on the latest console hardware.
