Having conquered the worlds of music and movies, Eminem has his sights set on video games.
The first title from his deal with Conspiracy Entertainment, is one entitled “Mix TV Presents: Eminem” and it’s expected to debut on next week at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.
The small games company has secured rights to publish interactive properties across multiple platforms featuring the rap artist.
“This is the first in a line of fan-appreciation titles that we’ll ship under the ‘Mix TV’ brand,” Conspiracy marketing director Vince Matthews said. “We’re positioning the brand as a fan-appreciation product.”
The game features four music videos, including “My Name Is” and “The Real Slim Shady” as well as bonus features and interactive elements featuring Eminem. Conspiracy will ship both a teen-rated version of the game, which will have radio-edit versions of the songs, and a adult-rated version with the uncut material.
In addition to the initial game, Conspiracy is collaborating with Eminem on ideas for the first next-generation video game under the deal. Matthews said ideas for the game include possibly turning “The Slim Shady Show” animated cartoon into a 3-D action video game in time for a release in late 2004.
