(AllHipHop) West Coast Hip-Hop icon Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion has announced that he will be featured in his own video game set to release in conjunction with both his new album and film called, Reincarnated.
Coming together with U.K. based video game publisher, 505 Games, and video game developer Echo Peak, Snoop has combined his passion for Kung-Fu movies and his music.
In the game Snoop uses his Kung-Fu skills to fight off different characters at each unique level of the video game.
“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.
Way of the Dogg is an officially licensed collaboration, inspired and soundtracked by the music that Snoop created for a generation of Hip-H0p fans.
Way of the Dogg, is set to release April 23, 2013, while the film will hit select theaters on March 15, 2013.
Snoops new game can be played on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360, on Microsoft and on the PlayStation Network and mobile platforms.
