If you thought Wu Tang: Shaolin Style was the last time a rapper or rap group would have a game based around them you were dead wrong. This time Snoop Dogg/Snoop Lion is the titular star of the game, and instead of a fighting game with ODB it’s a rythm-action game.

Each level of the game is based around a particular track of Snoop’s as you face off against a foe in a location inspired by the song. The game has a very 70’s Blaxploitation feel when it comes to the story and graphics, and comes from Snoop’s love for the 70’s Blaxploitation and Kung Fu films.

Snoop has lofty goals for how he hopes the game will be seen, by not just gamers but by the fans of his music.

“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 but Way of the Dogg is the first true gamification of my music,” said Snoop Dogg. “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.”

Way of the Dogg is set to come out later this year to coincide with his new album and movie ‘Reincarnated’, the movie is coming out on March 15th and the game is set to launch on PSN, XBLA, Android, and IOS on April 23rd.
