We Sing franchise surpasses 1 million units worldwide
Nordic Games has announced that its We Sing franchise for Wii has surpassed 1 million units worldwide.
The figure comes two weeks after the launch of We Sing Rock, which is the seventh title in the series.
“Whilst these figures may not be in the same league as Modern Warfare 3, we’re nonetheless extremely proud of them,” says Nik Blower, sales and marketing director at Nordic Games. “The original We Sing was the first entry into the Wii karaoke market, and we’ve made that market our own, despite tough competition. These are exciting times for the series – we’ve recently branched out into Dance, and continue to look at fresh opportunities. There’s no doubt that this first million milestone will not be our last.
“2012 will prove to be another year of We Sing growth. Despite the perception the market is in decline, We Sing’s audience remains healthy and loyal, and we’ll soon be announcing exciting new developments for the series. For now, we’d like to raise a glass to our fans and thank them for their support.”
We Sing launched in November 2009, followed by the We Sing releases Encore, Robbie Williams, UK Hits, and Rock, along with two regional titles We Down Under and We Sing Deutsche Hits.
