Confident they will find a niche in the crowded singing game market, Disney Interactive Studios announced today a new entry into their Sing It franchise. Sing It: Family Hits will bring forth levels of manliness and testosterone not found in other current music games, such as the Guitar Hero or Rock Band series.
Destined for the PlayStation 3 and the Wii, Sing It: Family Hits is scheduled for a summer release. The game will feature songs from the classic Disney movies, such as Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book, and more modern titles, including Toy Story and Cars, The Lion King, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid. Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, for Disney Interactive Studios had this to say on the exciting announcement:
“The Disney Sing It franchise has produced a passionate fan base, and they’ve expressed a big demand for songs from Disney’s timeless movies.
“Now, music fans of all ages will be able to enjoy Disney Sing It: Family Hits, both as an engaging karaoke performance game as well as perfect entertainment for family fun.”
Focusing entirely on singing, the game will allow for up to eight players in the “Family Mode”. Certainly, this game will probably not appeal to the majority of us. However, a little competition never hurt anyone. The Guitar Hero and Rock Band franchises could use a little competition to jump start innovation within the games.
