News: No joke, MJJ Productions confirms a new Michael Jackson game will be released this year.
As you know, Michael Jackson was no stranger to video games
, appearing in a handful of games over the years, including Michael Jackson's Moonwalker
. Now, according to the late singer's own production company, a new Michael Jackson game is in the works and will be released this year.
MJJ Productions told MCV that the game would be released on "home consoles" by Christmas 2009 and that development of the game has been ongoing for "several months."
The game, which is currently untitled, will include several of Jackson's hit songs along with his likeness and digitized speech samples. And for those worried the game will never be released after Jackson's death, MJJ Productions had this to say: "I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games."
We'll have more soon.
