Ubisoft has announced Just Sing for PS4 and Xbox One. It is expected to launch on Sep 6th.
It’s being developed by Elite Beat Agents and Lips developer iNiS. Players can hook up with the game by using a dedicated app on their smartphones.
Party Mode will let up to four players lip-sync along to the tracks and record their own music video, which can be captured using either the smartphone app, PlayStation Camera of Kinect. Battle Mode is your more traditional scored singing contest.
40 songs will come with the game, with a number of artists already confirmed including One Direction, Ellie Goulding, Justin Bieber, Queen, A-Ha and Meghan Trainor.
Just Sing is unlike more traditional karaoke and music games for consoles in that it does not come with a USB microphone. Instead, players will connect their smartphones to the game using an app, and then they can hold it out in front of them like they are taking a selfie. In this mode, the camera will broadcast both the audio and video of the player’s performance into the game and — if they choose — online for others to see.
The game will feature two main modes — Party mode, in which up to four players can create a music video together, and Battle mode, a 1-on-1 competitive mode. Music videos will either be recorded via the Xbox One Kinect or PlayStation Camera, as well as through any smartphone that is connected to the same Wi-Fi network as the console players are using for Just Sing. Smartphones can also be used as microphones for the game.
The following songs are confirmed for the game:
