Snoop Dogg has been finding multiple ways to reinvent himself. First with his name change of Snoop Lion and now he has a new project in the works. What is it you ask?
Yesterday, Snoop Dogg announced his new video game, "Way of The Dogg" -- a new rhythm-action, beat-matching combat game. Snoop teamed up with U.K. based video game publisher, 505 Games, and video game developer Echo Peak, to create a unique video game that combines his passion for Kung-Fu movies and his chart-topping musical hits. Each level is a fresh fight against a different style of character, in a new location, defined by a Snoop track that drives the beat of the combat.
“Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games whether it’s droppin’ my hits on the soundtrack or showing the world I can go toe- to-toe with the best fighters on the street but Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music. It’s the way you live, it’s the way you do what you do and captures the beat, the rhythm and the spirit of my music. It’s not just about who you are or where you’ve been but where you are headed to. This game shows how we evolve as individuals and they’ve incorporated the journey of my own personal reincarnation as Snoop Lion into my character, the environments and the path that players have to follow,” said Snoop Dogg.
The video game mixes Snoop Dogg’s passion for Kung Fu movies and his chart-topping, global hits with Echo Peak’s expertise in music gaming to create a truly unique rhythm-action, beat-matching combat experience. Each level is a fresh fight against a different style of character, in a new location, defined by a Snoop track that drives the beat of the combat.
His video game is set to release later this year alongside Snoop's forthcoming album and film, Reincarnated. The game will be available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®Network and mobile platforms.
