Michael Jackson is to become the subject of a new video game, which was unveiled yesterday.

Production company Ubisoft confirmed plans for the title at the E3 convention, currently taking place in Los Angeles.

The rhythm action dance game will see players earn points by emulating some of Jackson's signature dance moves, and will feature his music.

The company's CEO Yves Guillemot announced: "We're delighted to have the opportunity to develop a game based on the songs and moves of one of the world's most incredible performers of all time. We expect the game to bring Michael Jackson fans, families and friends together with the energetic song and dance of the King Of Pop."

The game is expected to be released later this year. The last time Jackson was the subject of a video game was in 1989 with the Moonwalker title.
