Redmond, Wa. – Millions of Wii U consoles have been flying off of the shelves recently, all thanks to a children’s game. My First Songs, available on the Wii U e-shop, is a karaoke application designed for toddlers to learn their ABC’s and nursery rhymes, but that hasn’t stopped the nation’s hardcore gamers from joining in on the fun. “I couldn’t even look at Titanfall after seeing those adorable farmers on the screen,” mused a teenaged gamer, who only asked to go by his gamer tag “DeathAdder69XXX.” “Once I started humming along with ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star,’ I was instantly hooked. There’s no going back now.”
Nintendo of America, maker of the Wii U, has had difficulty keeping up with demand since the game has become popular. “It’s incredible,” says Wendy Baxter, a local GameStop employee. “People are rushing into the store, trading in their PS4, their Xbox One, all of their games… They’re purchasing A Wii U and an e-shop card, and humming ‘Old Macdonald Had a Farm’ as they run back to their cars. I’ve never seen anything like it.”
In an interview with RingZero Games, publisher of My First Songs, a company representative seemed fairly calm about their newfound fanbase. “We anticipated this kind of reaction,” stated Robert Gallway. “We knew that once the public experienced the mesmerizing audio and visual effects of the game, they’d be completely enamored.” When asked about accusations of subliminal and mind-controlling messages buried deep in the game’s code, he declined comment, saying only “RingZero has big plans for the future. VERY big plans.”
RingZero demonstrated their next game for the press, in which the player pushes buttons on the controller to make simple words like “OBEY” and “FOLLOW US” appear on the screen. While very simple, this reporter can’t wait to play it again, and do whatever our benevolent overlords at RingZero tell me to.
