3rd May 2012: The 80s will be remembered for many things – big hair, fluorescent socks and Cabbage Patch Kids, to name but three – but perhaps its most famous export is the music.
Fans of the decade which gave us power ballads, soft rock and some of the most memorable songs ever written are in for a treat this October, as Nordic Games Publishing announces We Sing 80s.
We Sing 80s will feature 30 nostalgic favourites, covering the unforgettable decade’s cult hits and dazzling disco tracks, all of which include the original videos. Each song has its own difficulty rating and can be played in short or full length song modes.
“This addition to the We Sing collection will replicate everything that the 80s was adored for,” says Nik Blower, Sales and Marketing Director, Nordic Games. “The game’s customisable interface means that it will be packed full of flamboyance, big hair and disco colours as we continue to provide fans and new friends of the series with a fresh singing experience.”
Fun for all the family, the singing series will continue to support up to four players together simultaneously using four separate microphones in any of the eight multiplayer modes.
Party mode includes We Sing, Versus, Group Battle, Pass The Mic, First to X, Marathon, Blind and Expert. There’s also Solo mode, which can also be played in Blind and Expert mode. Karaoke mode strips the track of vocals to really challenge players, or those that fancy an authentic karaoke experience.
Other features include Singing Lessons to help singers fine tune their voices and a Jukebox to queue up songs like their own personal music channel.
In-game awards come from playing either single or multiplayer modes, adding further depth and replay value to We Sing 80s. Plus, once a track has been sung, players can replay performances and add cool effects to their voice.
More points come thanks to Star Notes which provides extra points for hitting hard notes and Player Statistics give a detailed breakdown on performance on notes hit and missed with a comment on your performance at the end.
