Want To Be Like Armin Van Buuren? Just Fire Up Your Nintendo Wii

| Monday, May 3rd, 2010 | 1 Comment »

Have you ever felt the urge to walk a mile in a superstar Dj’s shoes?  You know..except not actually leave your Living Room?

Well then don’t think twice about picking up a copy of Armin Van Buuren – In The Mix for the Nintendo Wii.  Oh yes, you heard me right – It’s an AvB video game. It looks like the game is set to hit the stores sometime soon.

There’s set to be a couple different game modes.
Career Mode lets you climb the ladder of the hardworking Dj, hoping to reach superstardom. Start out at the small lounges, produce a few tracks, maybe get signed to Armada, all while getting tips from Armin along the way.

Party Mode – kind of like practice mode…where apparently you can’t make any mistakes, just mix awesome sets.

Studio Mode, which will put you “in a real sound studio” and players can use the sound elements inside the game to literally build your own tracks. (This actually sounds pretty cool – I’m interested to see the samples that are available)

Quickplay – grab your records and hit the decks to mix a quick virtual set.

Sounds pretty cool, but if I’m trying to be like Armin, what about pumping up the crowd, and performing the legendary ‘Armin Jesus Pose’? Well no proper AvB game would be complete without that ability! Crowd interaction is all part of being a Wii-J.

Yep, judging by these two pics, I'd say they got the game about right.

There are rumours about the tracklisting, which is saturated mostly by Armin’s own productions (Which isn’t a bad thing), and supported by a list of other vocal trance anthems we’ve come to know through ASOT.
