More On: Sing It: Family Hits
Disney’s Sing It: Family Hits releases today and we have a batch of new screens and some box art to share. This game is a bit different than the other releases, as it incorporates scenes from classic Disney films into the game as background to the songs that they spawned. I also think it will sell to not only children, but their parents that fondly remember the songs from when they were kids, or even today as big kids. The game has 30 tracks and will sell for $39.99 as a standalone title or $49.99 bundled with a Logitech microphone for the Nintendo Wii or PlayStation 3.  Check the release after the jump for a list of some songs that come in the game...
