At its E3 conference this year, Ubisoft didn’t say much about its Michael Jackson game, other than that it existed. It was waiting for an event in London apparently, where it revealed most of the details for the title, called Michael Jackson: The Experience.
The game puts players in the shiny loafers of the King of Pop as they re-enact his dances and performances, including “Beat It” and “Billie Jean.” The Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game will feature support for Kinect and Move, respectively. The Move support is apparently similar to what was seen in Ubisoft’s Your Shape: Evolved title, using the Kinect camera to mirror the images of the player on the screen. You’ll also be singing along to the hits as well — the game will support microphones, with auto-pitch technology so you won’t make neighborhood strays howl.
The title will also be available for the Wii, as well as the Nintendo DS and the PSP, the latter consoles featuring gameplay that has you tapping to the rhythm of the tracks.
Michael Jackson: The Experience is out this November, just in time to make it on to everyone’s holiday wish lists.
