Rom² Karaoke - Volume I © 1989 NEC Avenue, Limited.
This is the first CD-Rom from a series of five karaoke discs from Nec Avenue. If you are not familiar with Karaoke the principle is really simple: a music plays with no lyrics and the goal is to sing while the song lyrics are progressively revealed. A movie usually accompanies the song but here, simple animations with drawn sprites or slideshows of digitized pictures are played instead. All the lyrics are, of course, in japanese. Rom² Karaoke Vol.1 contains eight songs: Mugo.N...Iroppoi, Waku Waku Sasete, True Love, Tatoo, Namida O Misenaide, Ai Ga Tomaranai, Tenshi To Yu-Waku and Kataritsugu Aini.
Nec also released a Karaoke Unit with a mixer, a microphone and two speakers.
