Disney Interactive Studios today announced that Disney Sing It: Pop Hits, the third game in the video-based karaoke video game franchise, will be released this fall. Disney Sing It: Pop Hits features 30 master recordings and popular music videos from fan favorites, including Miley Cyrus, Jonas Brothers, Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat, Demi Lovato, Hannah Montana, Jesse McCartney, Coldplay and One Republic. This instantly recognizable mix of Radio Disney and platinum-status talent allows players of all ages to connect with current artists right in their own living rooms.
“Great music, chart-topping artists and immersive gameplay are the key components in making this franchise popular with tweens and families around the world,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “In addition to an exciting new collection of songs, the fun factor has been raised with new multiplayer elements that will bring hours of enjoyment to music fans of all ages.”
In Disney Sing It: Pop Hits, fans will enjoy familiar single and multiplayer game modes such as singing solo, duet and head-to-head. Players will learn how to sing from a professional in the newly expanded “Sing It Pro” mode. Led by Disney Channel star Tiffany Thornton from “Sonny With A Chance,” this series of voice exercises runs through the basics of pitch and breathing, all the way up to harmonizing in a duet and riffing. These exercises are designed to teach players how to sing so they can unlock special rewards based on vocal improvements as they play.
Additional expanded and new features include:
Sing It Encore: Record and play back performances, and apply special effects
Run the Risk: Attempt to outbid opponents on predicted scores
Duet Mode: Harmonize with friends to earn higher scores
Unlockables : Earn pins and themes to customize console wallpapers
Slated for a fall release, Disney Sing It: Pop Hits follows last year’s release of Disney Sing It and this spring’s Disney Sing It: High School Musical 3: Senior Year. These titles provide a fresh and interactive social experience for fans, where they can team up or compete in lively performance battles with friends.
Developed by Zo Mode, Disney Sing It: Pop Hits will be available this fall for Wii™ and PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system. The game will be sold as a standalone or bundled with one Logitech microphone for all systems.
