REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - November 9, 2004 - Konami Digital Entertainment - America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced that Karaoke Revolution(tm) Volume 3 for the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system has shipped to retail stores. Karaoke crooners can now experience the groundbreaking series' new Duet modes that will let gamers sing with - and compete against - friends with the addition of two mic gameplay. Available bundled with a special Konami branded Logitech(r) microphone or as a standalone game that is compatible with any PlayStation 2 compatible USB headset or microphone, Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 includes more than 35 new songs - from timeless classics to today's hottest pop, rock and R&B hits to deliver the ultimate party game for the entire family.
Karaoke Revolution Volume 3's new gameplay modes allow for karaoke fun for hours on end. Duet mode lets aspiring pop stars play as a team and sing for high scores to classic karaoke duet tunes such as "Under Pressure," "Love Shack" and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough." Players can even practice their separate parts and learn how to harmonize with each other to achieve the perfect score. For some friendly competition, two players can square off and take turns singing every other phrase in a song while joining together during the chorus in Sing-Off mode. The player with the most points at the end of the track wins. Knockout mode offers the fiercest karaoke battle yet, pitting players against each other while singing the same song in unison. A battle meter keeps track of the gamers' progress and when it fills up for one player, the other is knocked out!
Karaoke Revolution Volume 3 combines the game's proprietary vocal analyzer technology, which judges and scores players as they sing their way to stardom, with a variety of new characters, outfits and venues, plus many hidden and bonus items. The collection of well-known tunes includes "Beat It," "Killing Me Softly," "New York, New York" and "You're The One That I Want." Following is a list of songs included in the game:
