SiNG Party is coming to the Wii U and while singing type games on the Wii have been around a while, they pale in comparison to games like Lips and Singstar on rival consoles due to a lack of or limited content, SiNG Party on the Wii U hopes to change that.

The game features a variety of modes that establish dynamic roles for everyone in the room. Party Mode is at the heart of SiNG PARTY. The lead singer, holding the wired microphone included with the game, is not looking at the TV screen but reading the lyrics and performance cues off the Wii U GamePad.
This allows the singer to interact with the crowd, who are invited to become part of the performance by following their own lyrical and dancing instructions shown on the TV screen. Other players can also pick up a Wii Remote to make the sound of a variety of instruments, such as a tambourine – or a cowbell!
SiNG PARTY has been created by FreeStyleGames, the ground-breaking development company behind the award-winning DJ Hero series.
“It has been an incredible privilege to work side by side with Nintendo on SiNG PARTY and we are extremely proud of the game, “ says Creative Director Jamie Jackson. “We can’t wait for it to be released and for players to experience the game we have created. This collaboration was a dream project for us and we believe we have created something truly innovative.”
The developers have drawn on their experience with the DJ Hero and Guitar Hero franchises to create a brand new party experience, with a playlist that has something for everybody.
From current hits like “Call Me Maybe’ by Carly Rae Jepsen, ‘Glad You Came’ by The Wanted, ‘I’m Yours’ by Jason Mraz and ‘Just A Kiss’ by Lady Antebellum to pop classics such as Queen’s ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’ by The Supremes and ‘I Want You Back’ by The Jackson 5, SiNG PARTY delivers a smashing party playlist with dozens of songs for players of all ages and musical tastes – while those who just can’t get enough will be pleased to hear that the playlist can be expanded with downloadable songs after launch.
Information about any downloadable content will be available at a later date since SiNG Party isn’t scheduled for release until January 18th, 2013.
