Activision has officially announced that DJ Hero will be seeing a sequel that includes the ability to use both two turntables, and a microphone. DJ Hero 2 is also set to include "over 70" new song mash-ups as well as the party play mode from the Guitar Hero franchise.
DJ Hero 2 party mode, for those who are not familiar, essentially lets players hop in and out of the game as it plays a shuffle mode of songs without keeping track of scores or failing out on players who decide to start playing. It's a cool idea, but hopefully the two turntable option also adds a new way to play the game, giving a more authentic DJ experience.
DJ Hero 2 will be out sometime this Fall with multiple bundles available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. No pricing is available yet, but the bundles will range from standalone game, to game with turntable, to a party pack that includes two turntable controllers and a microphone. I wonder if Beck gets any royalties?
