Who could forget an entire graveyard of zombies doing a collective dance? Or how your jaw dropped to the floor the first time you saw the King of Pop do the moonwalk? No matter what your opinion is of Michael Jackson, there is no denying his influence in the music world, or the world of dance.
I can still remember how giddy I was when I saw him light up the sidewalk in the video for Billy Jean. He was a visionary, no ifs, ands, or buts about it.
We all wanted to dance like MJ, we wanted to glide across the floor, scream “Ho! Who’s Bad?” and summon our virtual whips. Well Ubisoft has just announced that it is introducing a video game, to be unveiled November 2011, (to coincide with a new MJ album) that will allow us to do just that. The game has not been named just yet, but if your goal is to dance like MJ, this is the game for you.
And as an added bonus/method of torture to you and those around you, you also get to test out your vocal skills. It’s a family friendly game, but I have a lingering feeling this game will be come out when some cocktails are had!
The unnamed game will be one of the first of its kind to use motion detection technology to ‘rate’ how players dance like MJ.
“No artist can energize a dance floor in the spirit of fun like Michael Jackson. His God-given gifts for music and dance are something new generations of fans will appreciate even more. 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. It is a game that the entire family can experience and enjoy together and this is something that would please Michael tremendously,” noted Michael Jackson Estate Co-Executor John McClain.
