Ubisoft today announced the first set of tracks licensed for Michael Jackson: The Experience,
the multiplatform dance-n'-sing-along game coming this holiday. Only seven cuts deep, the list was accompanied by the publisher's assurance of "many more" -- eh HEE HEE! --
songs to be revealed:
- "Beat It"
- "Billie Jean"
- "Earth Song"
- "The Girl Is Mine"
- "Who Is It"
- "Workin' Day And Night"
The Wii Experience
playable for the first time this week at Gamescom
, but Ubisoft is focusing its marketing efforts on the company's so-called "proprietary Player Projection" technology -- sham on!
-- featured in the Kinect version of the game. As it sounds, and demonstrated in the promo shot above, Player Projection superimposes the player into the game screen via the image captured by the Kinect camera. (It's not be specified whether this common effect will also be featured in the camera-equipped PlayStation Move version of the game.)
If you're hoping to avoid the rather unpleasant experience of falling flat on your face while watching yourself
fall flat on your face, then you had best study up on some of MJ's dance tricks
. Thankfully, the game will include -- eh hee-hee-hee
-- the "Michael Jackson School" mode.
