Video game lets players be ‘Bad’ to Michael Jackson hits
LOS ANGELES — An upcoming video game starring Michael Jackson is set to be “Bad.”
Video game publisher Ubisoft announced Wednesday its dancing-and-singing “Michael Jackson The Experience” game will feature such Jackson hits as “Bad,” ”Beat It” and “Billie Jean.”
The title is scheduled to be released later this year for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii, as well as the handheld consoles Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable.
Other tunes for the game centered on the late King of Pop include “Earth Song,” ”The Girl Is Mine,” ”Who Is It” and “Workin’ Day And Night.”
“Michael Jackson The Experience” will be among the first to use Kinect and Move, the new gesture-recognition systems for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
The game’s songs were announced at the Gamescom convention in Cologne, Germany.
