DJ Tiësto in DJ Hero 2

World famous Dutch DJ Tiësto will be the playable character in the new music game DJ Hero 2. The number one DJ will also offers two exclusive DJ mixes for the game.

Tiesto’s music was already heard in the first game, but the DJ himself was nowhere to be found. This time, his virtual counterpart will be present, according to the game publisher Activision.

“I spend a whole day for my character in the studio in Los Angeles and acted as myself as natural as possible, like me standing in a DJ booth. They have pictures of my face and I must say that I look very much alike. It’s great to be the only Dutchman playing in the game, “said the DJ.

DJ Hero 2 is the follow-up to last year’s DJ Hero, a music game that used a plastic turntable peripheral to let players feel like they were cutting, mixing and scratching records.

In addition this sequel also adds a microphone into the mix so that players can sing or rap along to the songs using the standard pitch and rhythm recognition found in other music titles.

Other famous DJs In the game are; Deadmau5, David Guetta, DJ Shadow and DJ Qbert.

DJ Hero 2 will be released this fall for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii.
