"GUITAR HERO" publisher ACTIVISION BLIZZARD is working on a DJ-based music game called "DJ HERO," a source confirmed to MTV NEWS. On FRIDAY, gaming blog KOTAKU reported the first alleged details on a new ACTIVISION BLIZZARD music title, currently called "DJ HERO." MTV's source has seen "DJ HERO and confirmed KOTAKU's description for the basic gameplay mechanics.
"DJ HERO" is one of the few unannounced projects inherited from ACTIVISION's merger with VIVENDI.
THe mash-up mechanics make for a "really good" game, according to the report, but are proving to be a "licensing nightmare" when dealing with the music labels. As a result of the merger with VIVENDI, however, ACTIVISION BLIZZARD now has direct access to the UNIVERSAL MUSIC GROUP.
