Konami signs the Jackson 5

Better late than never

Konami has scored some Jackson 5 tunes from Universal Music Enterprises to be featured in Karaoke Revolution for Wii, 360 and PS3.

According to Konami you'll be able to "sing to original music of Jackson 5 classics including the number one hits I'll Be There, and ABC."

The content will be featured on the final disc at launch along Jackson 5 themes and photos. Konami's banking on the fact that this'll be the first karaoke game to feature licensed music of the Jackson 5 across "all next-generation gaming consoles". We think they mean current-gen machines.


"The music of the Jackson 5 is timeless," said Careen Yapp, VP of licensing and business development. "We are thrilled to partner with UMe and EMI to pay homage to the American institution known as the Jackson 5 in Karaoke Revolution. The Jackson 5 was the first group to have four consecutive number one singles, and to have those iconic hits like 'I'll Be There' or 'I Want You Back' will give fans both old and new a chance to experience their music in a way they have never before."
