DJ Hero 2 spinning October 19
Activision's turntable-based rhythm game returns for 360, PS3, Wii in two months with 90 on-disc tracks.
Activision's Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock is due out on September 28, and heavyweight Call of Duty: Black Ops lights up retail November 9. However, the publisher is sliding another game in between those two, DJ Hero 2, Activision confirmed today.
An Activision representative told GameSpot that the music-mixing sequel will hit the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Nintendo Wii on October 19 in North America and on October 22 in Europe. The title was previously announced as pegged to arrive with a less specific "fall."
The game will come in a variety of bundles. This includes a "party in a box" set ($149.99) that includes a copy of the game, two turntables, and a microphone, as well as a single-turntable bundle ($99) and a version without accessories ($49.99 for the Wii, $59.99 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3).
As for the game's soundtrack, DJ Hero 2 will ship with 90 on-disc artists, ranging from pop diva Lady Gaga to headbangers Metallica. Additionally, the sequel features an all-new single-player mode, which casts players as a struggling DJ working his way up to media mogul stature.
DJ Hero 2 was first confirmed in January by Activision CEO Bobby Kotick. While the critical reception for DJ Hero was generally positive, sales were disappointing, though Activision claimed it was the most successful new intellectual property of 2009 in terms of revenue.
