Michael Jackson Invades The Wii And New York

Zombies dancing to Michael Jackson music isn't anything novel for anyone who's seen the "Thriller" video. But how about a Storm Trooper? Or Spider-Man? How about Chewbacca? I was amongst those who saw these glorious sights when first entering the convention floor of this year's New York Comic Con.

Later this fall, Ubisoft is coming out with "Michael Jackson: The Experience" video game that does for Michael Jackson fans what Rock Band did for Guns N' Roses fanatics. They took over a section of the Con with a giant booth demonstrating the game.

In the game, players hold the Wii-mote in their hand and the object is to mimic the moves of the virtual Michael on the screen. From the looks of it, they've covered most of Michael's songs and his styles from each era. (Though the emphasis appears to be on the earlier stuff when Michael was less... um... creepy.)

I'll never tell if I ended up demoing the game myself. But here's a peek at others in action from the floor of NYCC:
