We Sing DownUnder hands Australia the mic

Australia has brought some wonderful musical acts to the world. The country is responsible for AC/DC, silverchair and The Wiggles – and, now thanks to THQ, the nation can unite in song with We Sing DownUnder, the first ever all-Aussie karaoke game, exclusively for Wii.

It’s out now, and I’m a little bit excited. The lineup features a blend of modern tracks – like The Veronicas’ Hook Me Up and Guy Sebastian’s Like It Like That, plus some classic Oz-Rock anthems like Eagle Rock from Daddy Cool and I Touch Myself by The Divinyls. For the purists, there’s even a version of Waltzing Matilda thrown in – as performed by none other than Slim Dusty.

The 30-song lineup has been put together by Australians, for Australians. Last year, THQ asked the public what they wanted to sing in an all-Aussie game – and these tunes were selected from the thousands of suggestions.

And it’s not a bad collection, representing decades of Australian music so that everybody should be able to find a favourite.

Unfortunately, THQ have explained that there are currently no plans to export Australia’s finest musical acts to the rest of the world, so if you’re not in the right geographical location, it might be time to befriend an Aussie and ask them to grab you a copy!

It should be no surprise that this particular ditty is #1 on my to-sing list…

We Sing DownUnder features game modes including solo and karaoke – plus the four-way multiplayer modes Group Battle, Pass the Mic and First to 5000 Points. Never let singing get in the way of your competitive nature!
