Rumor: DJ Hero Is Going Mobile

on January 28, 2010 11:39 AM

Everyone knows just how “well” Activision’s DJ Hero did. When I say “well”, I don’t mean the reception it received from the gaming press, I mean in the sense of how much the game and the peripheral generated in terms of sales.. Let’s face it, it wasn’t that much of a success as Activision had hoped. Some of us here at DualShockers played it, enjoyed it, and moved on. However, it seems as though Activision is standing by it’s new franchise and taking it mobile. Hopefully, it does a tad better than what it did on consoles.

According to Kotaku, the game will be published by Glu Mobile, who is widely known for generating mobile ports, and an artist whom everyone thought would make an appearance in DJ Hero for the consoles, but never did – Tiesto. Yes, he will now, as per the rumors, be making his way onto the mobile version.

With regards to platform, everyone should already have some sort of idea as to which mobile devices will be getting this game, if the rumors prove true. It is likely that the game will receive the ported treatment to devices such as the iPhone, Android, and a couple of other nifty devices (maybe the newly overgrown iPod Touch, the iPad?).

As news pours in regarding this rumor, we’ll make sure to keep you posted. After all, I definitely want to see just what can be done to emulate a turntable on mobile devices.
