UK studio Echo Peak has unveiled its first title, Way of the Dogg, a rhythm-action combat game designed in collaboration with Snoop Dogg.

The game will be released later this year for Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network alongside iOS and Android.

Every level in the kung fu-inspired Way of the Dogg is a fight against a different character matched to one of Snoop's tracks. Two screenshots for the game were released, showing Snoop Dogg kicking an adversary in the face behind a series of onscreen commands and star ratings.

"Everyone knows that Snoop is down with the biggest and best video games whether it's droppin' my hits on the soundtrack or showing the world I can go toe-to-toe with the best fighters on the street," said Snoop Dogg in a statement.

"Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music," Dogg added. "It's the way you live, it's the way you do what you do and captures the beat, the rhythm and the spirit of my music. It's not just about who you are or where you've been but where you are headed to."

"This game shows how we evolve as individuals and they've incorporated the journey of my own personal reincarnation as Snoop Lion into my character, the environments, and the path that players have to follow," concluded Snoop Dogg.

Multi-platinum hip-hop artist Snoop Dogg recently rebranded himself as Snoop Lion, and he also had his own stage in Namco Bandai's Tekken Tag Tournament 2.

@Venatorcruiser Oh man, if I knew you were going to buy guns I would have just told you to rip it up. It's your money though, so you can do whatever the hell you want with it. Sorry, but I don't like guns one bit.

Now they just need to sell pre-orders and season passes before the tripe launches and is confirmed to be like all those other terrible games.

Get it on Xbox and get a free White Lion track suit and wedge of Havarti Cheese.

Ahh, yes. It;s OK for a filthy potty mouthed rapper to make a game, but if someone made a game about Christianity or religion people would lash out. Don't you love the hypocrisy and double standards?

@DarthLod Mainstream games have embraced religious themes for a very long time. As it happens, a very recent game had a lot to say about Christianity--BioShock: Infinite--and it sold incredibly well. Darksiders and its sequel were modeled on aspects of Christianity; Dante's Inferno, ditto. El Shaddai has its roots in Judaism. And as has been mentioned, there are Christian games. Furthermore, there are many wonderful games that explore themes of friendship (Thomas Was Alone), family (Papo & Yo), the nature of existence (Journey), and so forth. If a game made by Snoop Lion is of no interest to you, perhaps it's best to ignore it and notice all those other wonderful games. There is no danger of our shelves suddenly being filled with nothing but "filthy potty mouthed rapper" games.

So yes, it's OK for a rapper to have a video game project. And it's ok for a minister to have one. And a fisherman, and a father, and anyone else that wants to make a game. I have no idea what double standard you are referring to. No one lashes out at The Bible Game for being about The Bible.

Christ taught such joy and love. I may never understand the paranoid rush to judgment of too many modern Christians.

Religious and Christian based games ARE made. They just aren't very mainstream and popular. Why does an evil lord of the sith care anyway? Go back to murdering Jedi, dumb freak.

Well alrighty then. Seems down and out old rappers have to do whatever they can to make some money. Yeah buddy I'm going to be waiting right outside my local GameStop for this release. I may even pre-purchase this sure-fire winner cause I know this is a AAA title that will sell out fast...All the previous was pure sarcasm just in case your the dense-type.

@DarkRaven0021 Sarcasm noted, however, waiting outside of Gamestop for a DL only title is pretty dumb dude.
