    Ubisoft recently announced the development of an interactive performance based game, inspired by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.  The game is family entertainment at its best and will provide an interactive experience that enables players to step into the shoes of Michael Jackson himself and re-live his most iconic performances through their own singing and dancing.  The upcoming game will include the most famous tracks from Michael Jackson’s extensive catalogue such as Beat It and Billie Jean, as well as an array of his awe-inspiring dance moves for players to learn and emulate within the game.  Additionally, fans will be able to sing along and test their vocal skills while immersed in the performance.

    “Michael always pushed every limit when it came to technology to give his fans unforgettable entertainment experiences, whether it involved his videos, his recordings or his concerts.  Now, with this interactive product, we have the chance to bring Michael, the artist, into households around the world in a perfect match of Michael’s artistry and the family entertainment which he always highly valued.  Kids, their parents, extended family members and friends will now have an opportunity to all come together and experience Michael’s music and dance in an innovative, exciting and fun way,” said John Branca, co-executor for the Estate of Michael Jackson.

    “We’re delighted to have an opportunity to develop a game based on the songs and moves of one of the world’s most incredible performers of all time,” said Yves Guillemot, chief executive officer at Ubisoft.  “We expect the game to bring Michael Jackson fans, families and friends together with the energetic song and dance of The King of Pop.”

    The game is set to be released this holiday season for on XBox360 for Kinect, Playstation 3 with Playstation Move and the Wii.
