Snoop Dogg…or rather Snoop Lion will be featured in a new video game. “Way of the Dogg” is being touted as a combination of “musical rhythms and fighting games”. It is also being described as a “rhythm-action, beat-matching combat experience.”
According to reports, in order to garner inspiration, “Snoop to the D-O- Double G” summoned his inner kung-fu master as well as his “blaxploitation” inner being for the video game.
The new venture also bears his Snoop Dogg moniker.
In an interview with The Guardian, “Dogg ” stated that his own personal stamp is on this game and he is quite proud of such: 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 in a statement as reported by The Guardian. “It’s not just about who you are or where you’ve been but where you are headed to.”
U.K. game studios Echo Peak and 505 Games are spearheading the project as they prepare for an April 23rd release date. Coincidentally (or not?) Snoop’s first album as Snoop Lion, “Reincarnated”, will be out April 23rd as well.He has a documentary that bears the same name.
Snoop’s documentary chronicles his journey into reggae music and will be available to fans on March 15th. The hit maker behind “What’s My Name” and “Gin & Juice” is scheduled to perform at the Ultra Music Festival in March.
