GC 10: Michael Jackson game songs work you day, night

Recommended Videos

So yeah, Ubisoft is actually making a Michael Jackson game, and it’s not a remake of the awesome Moonwalker. It’s called Michael Jackson The Experience, and it’s a singing and dancing game that will utilize Kinect for Xbox 360, Move on PlayStation 3, and the stock motion controls for the Wii. The game will also be coming to the PlayStation Portable and the Nintendo DS, but will require far fewer movements on the player’s part. (Read: It’s for lazy people.)

The first batch of songs are being confirmed at gamescom in Germany today, and they’re what you’d expect from a Michael Jackson game. I mean, the dude’s a pop icon, with a ton of hit singles and well-known tracks; it would be hard to populate the track list with unknown songs. So of course tracks like “Bad,” “Beat It,” and “Billie Jean” have made the cut. They’ll join “The Girl Is Mine,” “Who Is It,” “Earth Song,” and “Workin’ Day and Night” off of one of my favorite albums of all time, Off The Wall.

Ubisoft is promising “many more” songs on the final disc, which is scheduled for release this holiday.
