Michael Jackson was no stranger to video games, I use to play Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker on my Sega all the time, throwing around Michael’s hat in an attempt to thwart the plans of bad guys. Now we’ve come to learn that a new game is set to be released by Ubisoft before the end of the year.
The game is still untitled at this time but is being deemed a “dance karaoke” type game. It should be interesting to see how gamers pull off the moonwalk on a dance pad.
According to sources close to the project it will be available on the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 gaming consoles and the Microsoft version will use Microsoft Kinect motion capture technology, which lets the user ditch the controller.sd
Xbox gamers will also be judged based on their body movements, making it a bit more complex/frustrating for gamers who aren’t really up on their dance moves.
If dancing isn’t really your thing, there is also a karaoke setup with popular MJ songs.
The Michael Jackson estate is fully on board so we’ll lock this one up for a “just before” Xmas release.
Not familiar with the original game, here’s a screen capture:
