We Sing Encore, the sequel to the sold-out We Sing, had already had 30 of it's 40 songs announced via the standard medium of press release, and with a real mix of karaoke classics, and more modern hits, the line-up was already looking pretty solid.
The remaining ten songs were to be announced - one a day - through a rather inventive game of 'Twangman', a version of the classic hangman game through the social-networking site, Twitter. The remaining ten songs - exclusive to UK versions of the game - are as follows:
Girls Aloud - The Promise
Florence & The Machine - Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)
The Saturdays - Up
Will Young - Leave Right Now
Kasabian - Fire
S Club 7 - Don't Stop Movin'
Stereophonics - Dakota
The Proclaimers - I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)
N Dubz - I Need You
Baddiel & Skinner & The Lightening Seeds - Three Lions
Cheryl Cole, showing off both her vast vocabulary, and immense lyric-writing skills. No, we don't believe she wrote them herself either.
We Sing Encore is a karaoke game for the Nintendo Wii, due out this July, and comes with a whole host of modes to get you and your friends singing. Featuring both single player and multiplayer modes, allowing up to four players to play either co-operatively, or competitively, there are three different difficulty levels to choose from, meaning whether you're an established songstrel, or a budding primadonna, you'll be able to find a difficulty to suit you.
The game also features a brand-new rewards system - similar to the achievements on the Xbox 360 - that reward players for completing specific challenges in single player, along with a new 'real karaoke' mode, which removes the backing vocals entirely - which sounds rather scary, if you ask us. And even on days when you've got a sore throat, or don't feel like singing, the brand-new jukebox mode allows you to just sit back and listen to the songs.
We've been lucky enough to have been invited to a hands-on preview event for the game, at a Karaoke bar in central London, in around a week's time, so if you want to know how the game's turning out, and whether we think it'll be worth your hard earned cash, be sure to come back in a few weeks time, to read our latest impressions.
Oh, and if you're in the Soho area, it might be an idea to reenforce your windows...
