Wii Karaoke U has been announced by JOYSOUND, developers of the SiNG Party series. It’s a free game coming out in the west later this year, and you can either use your the microphone in your Wii U GamePad, or your existing SiNG Party mics to embarrass yourself.

Nintendo Life reports that the game will be available for free on the Wii U’s eShop, with the option to buy streamed songs, or pay for a limited time pass at one day, one month and 30 days. It’s also compatible with a range of USB mic devices.

The game comes with three modes – traditional score-graded play, a mode that gives you more-detailed feedback on your wailing, and finally, a mode that sees your Mii avatar swaning around the screen striking poses as you sing.

What do you think? Would you use this?
