Snoop Dogg Stars in New XBLA Game

Musical combat on the cards.
505 Games has today confirmed that they'll be releasing Echo Peak's Snoop Dogg-based title Way of The Dogg this summer via Xbox Live Arcade.
Way of The Dogg sees Snoop providing the soundtrack to a series of rhythm-action battles which are "wrapped in a Blaxploitation-inspired narrative." A brace of screenshots have been made available, which make the gameplay look a little like Gitaroo Man, if we're totally honest. That's no bad thing.
Snoop himself said:
Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games whether it’s droppin’ my hits on the soundtrack or showing the world I can go toe- to-toe with the best fighters on the street but Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music. It’s the way you live, it’s the way you do what you do and captures the beat, the rhythm and the spirit of my music. It’s not just about who you are or where you’ve been but where you are headed to. This game shows how we evolve as individuals and 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,
We assume that the title may change to Way of The Doggy Dogg or Way of The Dogg aka Lion, or Way of The Lion, pretty much depending on how Snoop himself feels on the day.
We've picked up the trailer for you, so you can tide yourself over until Way of The Dogg releases in the summer.
