Summer is fast approaching. That means it’s time to roll down the windows, turn up the music, and get ready for the new Snoop Dogg….Lion….whatever game.
Way of the Dogg is a rhythm-based fighting game in which you play as America Jones (which might be the best character name of the year), “the toughest street fighter in town”, who embarks on a path of revenge against the thugs who killed his girlfriend…or something.
The gameplay trailer released today gives a bit of backstory as well as a look at how this game plays. Essentially, it’s a 2.5D fighting game consisting of QTE prompts. What this game really has going for it is that it is absolutely beautiful looking and it seems to really commit to the 70s-era Blaxpoitation/kung-fu movie vibe that it’s shooting for.
The only real question I have from watching this trailer is — why isn’t it called Way of the Lion? Whatever. If Way of the Dogg ends up being half as entertaining as it appears, it might be one of 2013’s sleeper hits on the downloadable down-low.
No release date has been confirmed, but Way of the Dogg is coming soon to PSN, XBLA, and iOS. For more information about this game, head over here to check it out.
