The makers of Guitar Hero have done it again. This time, they have joined forces with the Hip Hop community to bring forth DJ Hero. This new interactive music experience is what many Rap fans have been waiting for in the video game world.
DJ Hero’s Renegade Edition, named after the track Eminem is featured on in Jay-Z’s The Blueprint, will be released around the same time as the standard edition of the game. This edition will feature a package with DJ Hero, a Renegade turntable controller and a turntable carrying case that opens up to become a performance-ready DJ stand. To go along with this, the pack will also feature a 2-CD pack which will contain unreleased Eminem and Jay-Z tracks. This will also include a case to be designed by artist Shepard Fairey.
According to a press release, this game is sure to excite many music lovers.
“DJ Hero delivers the most diverse and international collection of music ever assembled in a music game by incorporating anthems from legendary artists.”
In the game, players will be able to blend, scratch, cross fade and sample music.
Fans may recall that Jay and Em both appeared on stage to introduce DJ Hero earlier this year in Los Angeles. Both artists also hinted towards this Renegade Edition back in May.
