The Voice Set

If you’re a fan of the reality television singing competition, The Voice, you’re in luck. The video game publisher Bigben, known for titles like WRC 5, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter, and of course, I Love My Pony, have announced that a video game based on the hit TV show The Voice will be hitting consoles later this year.

The game is being developed my music game company, Voxler, and is coming out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, as well as the aging Wii (with compatibility for the Wii U). Voxler are certainly not beginners in the music game industry, having developed titles like Let’s Sing 2016 and Now That’s What I Call Sing.

The game is said to feature all the different stages featured in the actual show such as “The Blind Auditions, The Battles, The Live Show and the famous red chairs.”

The CEO of Voxler, Nicolas Delorme had the following to say about the game:

“We are very happy to be working with Bigben on this ambitious project, and we will bring all of our experience and passion to bear to reproduce the experience of The Voice in a video game as faithfully as possible.”

The CEO failed to mention how a game based on The Voice and developed by Activision has already been out for 2 years. As one might expect, it didn’t get the best ratings and currently holds a 3/10 rating on Destructoid.

It remains to be seen whether there are enough fans of the show for the game to actually sell well. However, considering how every single one of the 11 seasons of the show, gathered over 10 million viewers each, the game could have good sales. With that in mind, the two games Voxler has on Steam, Let’s Sing and Let’s Sing 2016, both have mixed reviews. While the show might have a great audience, the game might not be up to par with what its audience is looking for in a game adaptation of their favorite show.
