Since the death of the King of Pop, we've getting Michael Jackson news left and right - the gaming scene isn't an exception. Apart from the fact that MJ loved games and was a sucker for Mortal Kombat, MJ is gonna get one last hurrah at gaming, even in death. His own MJJ Productions confirm - a new Michael Jackson game is in the works.
Hold on, before you go thinking that this might be some pseudo-tribute to make money off Jacko's death, you must know that MJJ Productions has been working on the title "for several months." In fact, MJ recorded his speech for the game months before his sudden passing.
Release is slated for Christmas later this year for home console release, but since Sony owns rights to MJ's music, we may not see an Xbox 360 version. Needless to say, the game will feature the pop icon's hits, although none were specified. Even with Jackson gone, MJJ will still push through with the project. I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games," said an MJJ rep.
