If karaoke is your jam, then you probably know about Japan's Karaoke Joysound hit franchise. North America's very first taste of this comes in the newly launched Wii title, which adds new minigames and avatar customization to its singing.
Karaoke Joysound comes with 30 or so songs, but its on-demand subscription service gives players access to over 1,000 more streaming selections, making it work a lot like the machinery in a real karaoke booth. Singers can rent the entire library for as long as they'd like, paying for the time they plan to use it.
This Wii game adds minigames to keep the spectators busy while you try to belt out a power ballad. In-game points are awarded as currency, letting players customize characters, stages and more.
If you're ready to sing, Karaoke Joysound is in stores now, priced at $29.99 for the software, or $39.99 with a microphone (no, not the sex toy mic). I can't wait to hear your Nickelback rendition.
