Way of the Dogg Bringing Snoop's Rhythm-Action Combat to XBLA

He might go by the moniker of Snoop Lion these days, but 505 Games and Echo Peak have teamed up with the reincarnated rapper to bring 'rhythm-action combat adventure' Way of the Dogg to the Xbox Live Arcade.

“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," said Snoop Lion/Snoop Dog (take your pick).

"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,” Snoop added.

Combining Snoop's passion for 70s kung-fu movies and hip-hop, Way of the Dogg promises to be "visually stylish rhythm-action combat wrapped in a Blaxploitation-inspired narrative," according to Echo Peak's Ciaran Walsh.

Way of the Dogg is set to launch later in the year on XBLA, and wil coincide with Snoop Lion’s new album and film, 'Reincarnated' on April 23rd, 2013 and March 15th, 2013 respectively. Presumably, Way of the Dogg will release sometime around that period.

Check out the trailer and first screens below.

@12. Snoop is in a permanent state of being stoned. Hepprobably don't have a clue what he agreed to. Probably just heard $$$ mentioned and said yes.

Wasn't the Rock Band track pack the first "gamification" of his music? How much more gamified could his music be?
