KONAMI ANNOUNCES KARAOKE REVOLUTION® FOR THE WiiTM, PLAYSTATION®3 AND XBOX 360®

Only Karaoke Game to be Released on All Next Gen PlatformsFeatures All-New Songs, Expanded Multiplayer and Party Modes and a Brand New Career Mode

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – April 21, 2009 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced Karaoke Revolution® for Wii™, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The newest title in the groundbreaking music series distinguishes itself in the market as it is the only karaoke game that will be available on all next gen platforms. Additionally, the game will let karaoke fans sing and compete against friends with expanded multiplayer modes, 50 all-new hit songs from master recordings, as well as 16 original customizable venues and newly enhanced customizable characters including facial and body morphing.

Transforming video game consoles into a high-end interactive karaoke machine, Karaoke Revolution’s expanded multiplayer modes allows players to throw karaoke parties with their friends where they can perform as teams or choose to play in the single player career mode. If you just want to hear your favorite songs in succession, create a playlist and whenever you’re ready to perform, pick up the microphone and jump in at anytime! Players can join together on a wide variety of contemporary hits and classic favorites from licensed master recordings. Additionally, those using either the Xbox 360® or the PLAYSTATION®3 can utilize the co-op Party Mode with multiple game modes for up to 16 players or battle with or against each other in the ultimate competition.

“There is not gonna be a Terminator Salvation for Nintendo Wii. I’m sorry the press release wasn’t clear about that. We actually explored the possibility to develop the game on Wii and PS2 but then we dropped the idea and concentrate on the next-gen consoles and PC.” – Vice President of Halcyon Games, Cos Lazouras

I was never expecting Terminator Salvation to end up on the Wii. It is a shame, however, that a Wii version was never developed, especially since the idea was considered.
