Best news to hit my inbox in ages, not joking. Snoop Lion, 505 Games, and developer Echo Peak have announced Way of the Dogg coming to PSN later this year.
Way of the Dogg is an officially licensed collab with hip hop icon Snoop Lion and looks to be a rhythm fighting game. You can see some breif glimpses of gameplay in this Behind-The-Scenes video:
Snoop had the following to say about the 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
The game’s story of also takes heavy influence from ’70s Kung Fu and Blaxploitation movies. The part that has me most excited however is that each stage will have a different Snoop Dogg/Lion track being the backbone for the gameplay. No word on if these are radio edits or not, but judging by the Teen rating it might be the case.
So be on the look-out for Way of the Dogg later this year.
