The Donkey Kong Country Returns banana pouch pre-order bonus has got nothing on this "buy early" bonus: the Michael Jackson: The Experience glove. White, studded, and every bit as glittery as the King of Pop's iconic dancing mitt, the glove (pictured below) will be packaged in special edition bundles of the Wii version of Michael Jackson: The Experience for a limited time.
The glove isn't exactly a pre-order exclusive bonus, but you'll want to consider purchasing fast if you're in for it, since Ubisoft says that it will only be bundled with launch copies of the game. Of course, Ubisoft does, however, urge us to pre-order to ensure that our right hands won't go unprotected.
== TEASER ==In a recent press release, Ubisoft says the glove will help in "further enhancing the magic felt by the King of Pop's fans" as we dance our faces off in front of the game when it hits this November 23. There's been no word yet if the Xbox 360 or PS3 versions of the title will come packaged with their own gloves later in 2011 when those games are released.
“One of the most iconic symbols of Michael Jackson’s music and performance legacy is his signature glove,” Tony Key, Ubisoft VP of sales and marketing, said in a statement. “Consumers are encouraged to either pre-order Michael Jackson: The Experience early or make sure to purchase the title on day one in order to get this special edition glove as we’re sure it will sell out quickly."
In addition to dropping knowledge about the glove pack-in, Ubisoft announced two new tracks for the game: "Speed Demon" and "Dirty Diana." Here's the list of the songs that have been announced so far:
- "Beat It"
- "Billie Jean"
- "Black or White"
- "Earth Song"
- "Rock With You"
- "Smooth Criminal"
- "The Girl Is Mine"
- "They Don't Care About Us"
- "Who Is It"
- "Workin' Day and Night"
Look, the game has "Thriller" and a glove. How is a man supposed to reject this title?
