Michael Jackson Karaoke/Dance Videogame Announced

Text

“We’ve signed a legend,” said Ubisoft Entertainment CEO Yves Guillemot at the E3 games conference. He was referring to Michael Jackson, whose likeness will appear in an Ubisoft game that will be released in time for this year’s holiday season.

The game, which has been authorized by Jackson’s family, will allow players to follow along with the King of Pop to learn how to moonwalk and execute some of his other signature moves. There will also be a karaoke portion, so players will be able to give their best attempt at classics such as “Billie Jean.” The game is expected to be released for several movement-sensing platforms, such as the Wii, as well as on the new Microsoft Xbox Kinect, which would allow people to play without controllers.
