Debuting on the Sony PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system in November 2003, Karaoke Revolution will feature an outstanding catalog of hit songs set to beautifully rendered 3D graphics. Now, game players worldwide will be able to turn their living rooms into a concert stage, complete with a live band and roaring audience.
Karaoke Revolution expands on Konami's popular Dance Dance Revolution series that features music as the focus of the game and gets people of all ages up on their feet and dancing. With this new karaoke title, music is again at the heart of the game - but now, gamers will show off their vocal skills as they sing along to their favorite songs.
Turning the PlayStation 2 console into the ultimate karaoke party machine, Karaoke Revolution gives players the opportunity to show off their singing abilities in the comfort of their own living rooms. Designed for amateur singers of all ages and all levels of musical abilities, Karaoke Revolution boasts a robust catalogue of popular songs, including karaoke favorites, rock, dance, pop and R&B hits.
Utilizing proprietary voice recognition technology and the official Sony headset/microphone peripheral, Karaoke Revolution judges each player's pitch and rhythm during their performance to determine their ultimate score. Adding to the drama and fun of playing the game is a dynamic in-game crowd that reacts in real time to each note sung - either cheering on their favorite performers or booing them off stage!
For players looking to take their singing career one step further, Karaoke Revolution features the "SHOWTIME MODE" which allows players to work their way up from singing at clubs to becoming the next pop star, headlining at the ultimate concert venue. Additional in-game play modes including "ARCADE MODE" and "KARAOKE MODE" will have players singing all night long!
Karaoke Revolution is being developed by cutting-edge music videogame creator Harmonix. Based in Cambridge, MA, Harmonix previously developed Frequency and Amplitude for the Sony PlayStation 2 computer entertainment system.
