Wii Karaoke U by JOYSOUND will be released in Europe as a software download from the Wii U eShop beginning October 4th. The download will be free, and after a free one-hour trial, players will need to purchase hourly “Tickets” that allow them to compete for either one hour, 24 hours, or 30 hours at a time. Wii Karaoke U participants will have the ability to connect a Wii U Microphone (sold separately) to the console via a USB connection, or players can simply use the microphone built into the Wii U gamepad.
Wii Karaoke U by JOYSOUND was announced for European release back in July, but gamers have not been provided with an official release date until now. The game will have 1500 songs available at launch, with more arriving later through regular software updates.
