Ubisoft has announced it will release a Michael Jackson videogame that challenges Xbox 360 players to dance like the King of Pop, due for release on April 12. Michael Jackson: The Experience taps into camera and gesture-tracking capabilities of Kinect controllers for Xbox 360 consoles to track how well players are imitating the late music legend's moves.
The game features Ubisoft technology that projects players into on-screen scenes inspired by Jackson's music videos and live performances. Ubisoft released a version of the game for Nintendo's Wii consoles with motion-sensing wand controllers in November.
Ubisoft has been a long-time believer in motion controls for videogames and the potential for 3-D cameras to immerse players in the on-screen action. The firm seized the opportunity to work with Nintendo on titles tailored for the Wii and had action videogame Red Steel ready when the innovative motion-controlled consoles launched in late 2006.
