In an announcement made Monday at Ubisoft E3 2010 video game show in Los Angeles, Michael‘s fans will be able to moonwalk next to Michael in a new video game to be released this holiday season by Ubisoft Entertainment
The game will be among the first to use new motion-detecting camera systems to be available later this year for Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Sony’s PlayStation 3.
The game will also work with hand-held controllers on Nintendo’s Wii and on the smaller Nintendo DS and PSP portable console from Sony. The as-yet-unnamed game will be among the first to use new motion-detecting camera systems.
The launch will roughly coincide with the planned sale of a new album containing unreleased Michael recordings in November.
Ubisoft marketing vice president Tony Key says as part of the game, players will learn how to mimic Michael’s signature moves. Key adds; “You are going to learn to moonwalk.” A video was shown and a team of Michael’s dancers from ‘This Is It’ performed to Michael singing ‘Beat It.’
