Konami has signed a deal that gives the company the exclusive videogame rights for American Idol.

“Not only is American Idol one of the biggest television programs in the U.S., but its format lends itself perfectly for making compelling video games,” said Kazumi Kitaue, Chairman and CEO of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “With Konami’s leadership and expertise in music video games and American Idol’s popularity and strength as a recognized franchise, this is a powerful synergy that will greatly benefit the consumer.”

The games will be distributed throughout America, Canada and Latin America with more details to be revealed at a later date.
