There Is A New Michael Jackson Game

The King of Pop Michael Jackson is no stranger to video games. Besides appearances in SEGA games like Space Channel 5 and Space Channel 5: Part 2, Jackson also had his own game Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. That's not all.

Today, Ubisoft showed a new performance-based Jackson game. According to the publisher, the game puts players in the shoes of the popstar and enables them to relive his most iconic performances through dancing and singing.

The game features iconic songs like Beat It and Billie Jean.

"Michael always pushed every limit when it came to technology to give his fans unforgettable entertainment experiences, whether it involved his videos, his recordings or his concerts. Now, with this interactive product, we have the chance to bring Michael, the artist, into households around the world in a perfect match of Michael's artistry and the family entertainment which he always highly valued," said John Branca, co-executor for The Estate of Michael Jackson.

"This game is a natural extension of what he would be doing today to raise his artistry to even greater heights for his fans of all generations," Branca added. "It is a game that the entire family can experience and enjoy together and this is something that would please Michael tremendously."

Previously, there have been reports of a new Jackson game, which will coincide with a "new" album and re-released works.

Michael Jackson: The Game will be released this Christmas on the Xbox 360 for the Kinect and the PS3 for the Move. There will also be Wii, PSP and DS versions.

    All the phoney fans who jumped on the bandwagon when he died can buy this. I won't be buying this game. If i want to listen to Michael Jackson, i'll stick to my albums thanks.

    Wow... another terrible post-humorous money grab by the sounds of it...

      Hey Chuloopa, that's an awesome spelling mistake lol. I usually never do the grammar nazi thing, it sucks, but the term post-humous is even better when it's said post-humorous, because that damn games such a joke lol!

      I can't wait to see the DLC where Tito, Jermaine and the other two try to get themselves digitally inserted because 'the fans demand it'!

        haha yeh i noticed after i posted - but honstly i also think it fits quite well.

        I think your also missing the "Quest for bubbles" DLC

          Haha

          "The Quest for Bubbles:

          Play as an RSPCA (SPCA in America) agent who gets called to Michaels house when they hear hes in the bath blowing bubbles..."

    I'd prefer a HD PSN and XBLA remake of that old Moonwalker Game.

    This may be a way to get money, but this is a good idea. There is only one other game that michael had appeared in by himself, and not just phoney fans will be buying this. If you don't want to buy the game in repects for Michael you can do so, but others will want to remember him in their own way, most will read others will dance or sing. But others want a more interactive way to remember him.
