Snoop Dogg is coming soon to a gaming console near you.
The veteran rapper is set to release a video game called Way of the Dogg in partnership with Echo Peak and 505 Games. 505 Games is also working on games based on Olympian Michael Phelps and the classic film Grease.
The rhythm-combat game "combines 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." Players will fight against a different style of character at each level in a new location defined by a Snoop Dogg song that "drives the beat of combat." The game will be available on Xbox 360, Microsoft, PlayStation and mobile platforms.
"Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music," says the rapper and reggae artist in a press release. "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."
No word yet on when the video game is set to drop.
