Just when you thought Michael Jackson’s collection of unheard tracks, unseen photos, and untouched legacy items were dwindling down, fans and lovers of the late King of Pop will have the chance to experience him in a digital life.
Ubisoft announced the release of the Michael Jackson video game some time ago and is getting ready to release it in November.
“Michael Jackson: The Experience” will be available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation Portable, Wii and Nintendo DS.
Gamers and fans will learn some of Jackson’s signature moves. With motion technology that projects an image onto the screen, users will attempt to mimic his move and dance like Michael. It works something like “Guitar Hero,” where players advance according to their performance. The better you do, the higher score you receive.
According to theboombox.com, players will also be able to test their mic skills on the Xbox, PS3 and Wii editions, where they can sing karaoke to some of MJ’s greatest hits. The Nintendo DS and PSP versions will be akin to music video game Elite Beat Agents, where users tap out rhythms on their screens to keep the beat of the tune, and will include a series of mini-games and quizzes.
Also to be released soon are two new albums of never-before released material.
