The highly anticipated music video game, DJ Hero, was released today by Activision, adding another instrument and flavor to the immensely popular genre spawned by rhythm games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band. The game features a 'turntable' controller and features more than 80 remixes from a selection of over 100 different songs across numerous genres.
The title track, DJ Hero, is a remix of Juke Box Hero by DJ Z-Trip featuring MURS. In this version Kelly Hansen actually headed to the studio and sang the overdubs, changing "Juke Box Hero" to "DJ Hero!" The song will also be featured in one version of the TV ad including one spot during the World Series!
