Yoostar 2 Preview – Let The Movie-oke Begin!

Yoostar 2 is coming to stores on March 8th, and it’s a curiously fascinating idea, especially if you have an XBOX Kinect. It’s hard to describe without calling it a sort of Movie-oke, but basically you put yourself into classic movie scenes and either give your own version of the classic lines, or reinvent the scene with your own ideas. Either way, you get to see yourself in the film scene, and as crazy as the whole things may sound, it looks like fun.

The list of scenes and sets has been released, and apparently more will be available for download once you have the game. Check out the list, some screenshots, and a couple of videos that will give you a good look at this game.

Rehearsal begins as Yoostar Entertainment Group (www.yoostar.com) today announced the complete set list for the March 8 release of Yoostar®2 for the Kinect™ for Xbox 360® and PlayStation® 3 computer entertainment system. The first console game to insert players into their favorite films and television shows, Yoostar 2 is launching with 80 scenes in the box, offered in five different languages, with hundreds more scenes available online.

“There is a certain challenge to selecting the right mix of movie and TV scenes that have the prerequisites needed to be both fun and entertaining,” said Nicholas Reichenbach, Chief Content Officer for Yoostar Entertainment Group. “But all that effort was worth it as we have some phenomenal content – from tear-jerkers and slapstick comedies, to Hollywood blockbusters and cult classics. Yoostar 2 will awaken and inspire the performer in each one of us.”

A new breed of social gaming for consoles and an ideal party game, Yoostar 2, brings the magic and fun of Hollywood to living rooms everywhere. Using the magic of Kinect for Xbox 360 or the PlayStation®Eye, players insert themselves into famous movie and TV scenes, starring alongside or in place of their favorite actors. Perform the lines as written in English, Spanish, French, Italian or German, or “flip the script” and deliver a personalized improvisation. Yoostar 2 then scores the performance and lets players upload the scene to Facebook, Twitter, Yoostar 2’s in-game social portal on Xbox LIVE® online entertainment network and PlayStation Network, or Yoostar.com.
