In English, "-licious" is taken from "delicious" to form portmanteaus with other words.
Karaoke is a portmanteau of a Japanese word and a borrowed one. Despite having a Japanese word there, it looks like the entire thing is rendered in katakana. I would assume the same practice would hold for your invention.
Nihongolicious --> ニホンゴリシャス
