The Black Eyed Peas are next in line to receive a music game homage, as Ubisoft this weekend announced it will feature the US hip hop group in an upcoming dance title called The Black Eyed Peas Experience, due for the Xbox 360 Kinect and Nintendo Wii.
Similar to other dance games, The Black Eyed Peas Experience will give Kinect and Wii owners the opportunity to flail and/or waggle around to The Black Eyed Peas tracks while watching avatars resembling will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap (Allan Pineda Lindo Jr) groove along to their own tunes. The title will also feature brand new dance routines, and the ability to sing along if the mood strikes.
"Ubisoft has both redefined and dominated the dance category in the video game industry and we can't wait to be part of taking that to the next level by infusing an experience that's 100 percent authentic to The Black Eyed Peas," said will.i.am in a press release, following the game's reveal during a weekend performance in France.
Added Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot: "The Black Eyed Peas are the perfect artists to headline our next Experience game. Their award-winning music, dance moves and artistic style will be combined into a gaming experience that will excite both fans of the group and those who enjoy playing dance titles."
Neither Ubisoft or the band have given any indication when the game will arrive, or why PS3 Move owners won't be getting a taste, but expect more info to phunk with fans' hearts on the game's Facebook site.
