For Shizzle Dizzle, or should we say Roooaarrr? No matter how you consider the quote nowadays, Snoop Dogg is working with 505 Games to create his own spin on action. Imagine listening to Snoop’s “Drop it like it’s Hot and shooting people to the music.” In a sense, that exactly what’s on the way.
Instead, it’ll be some karate chopping going on. Developer’s Echo Peak and Snoop Dogg have announce Way of the Dogg, a new 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.”
Snoop Dogg, who recently took the new persona “Snoop Lion” , had this to say about Way of the Dogg:
“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.”
Way of the Dogg is planned to release soon. With Snoop’s new album and DVD coming out within the next month, you can expect the action to launch somewhere in between there.
