Michael Jackson to appear in video game
Michael Jackson, King of Pop, is all set to come back to life! The singer-dancer-composer will be the main character in a new video game for which he had already recorded voiceover lines shortly before his death.
The game is produced by the singer’s firm MJJ Productions. According to reports, a spokesperson for MJJ Productions said, “I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games.”
This is not the first time that 50-year-old Michael Jackson has appeared in a video game. In 1990, the pop icon co-developed ‘Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker’, which was playable in arcades and on home consoles and based on his Moonwalker dance steps.
The story follows Jackson as he uses various music and dance related abilities to defeat enemies while on a quest to save kidnapped children from the hands of the evil ‘Mr. Big’. Some of his biggest hits, including ‘Beat It’ and ‘Smooth Criminal’, were incorporated into the game.
