Turntable legend, DJ Qbert (Richard Quitevis), will be joining the scratching crew of “mixologists” for Activision’s upcoming DJ Hero 2. Releasing this October, DJ Hero 2 will allow players – preferably drunk ones – to get their music on with two turntable controllers and a microphone as they go up against the likes of scratching and spinning gods which include Deadmau5, DJ Qbert, David Guetta, and other turntable abusing DJs.
“I’m excited about finally getting to bring the art of turntablism’s defining skills, as well as two exclusive mixes, to DJ Hero 2,” DJ Qbert states. “It’s been a dream of mine as a gamer to battle myself on the turntables and now millions of fans around the world and their friends will get their chance to also.” A bit of a narcissist aren’t we, DJ Qbert? Wanting to battle yourself? Well, I have to give it to him – he is that good.
Developed by FreeStyleGames, DJ Hero 2 will be available as a Party Bundle which will include a copy of the game, two turntables and a microphone. For those of you who have the first one, you’ll be able to grab a hold of DJ Hero 2 as a Turntable Bundle which features one turntable controller and a copy of the game, or you can just purchase the standalone game if you’ve already obtained the aforementioned peripherals in the masses. The game is slated to release on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii.
