World's Best DJ gets own Wii game

Armin van Buuren's big trance.

Foreign Media Games is making a Wii music game based on Armin van Buuren, the World's Best DJ, according to DJ Magazine.

The Dutchman's trance anthems can be mixed using effects and loops, and he's so pleased that he's offering some of his unheard music to developer Cloud 9 for the game. He's even persuaded artists he regularly works with to contribute. What a guy.

"I've been a huge games freak for years and I am, of course, a music fanatic," said the blonde-haired spinner.

"Music mixing technology has improved enormously over the past few years. You can do a lot more with your choice of records and the various effects, making it even more fun to mesmerise your audience, take them on a musical journey and let them party on.

"Now you can discover how great it is to mix your own music in your own living room! This game shows you how I work as a DJ, but you can use your own style. Perfect your skills and make your friends and family totally crazy about dance and trance," he added.

Armin van Buuren - In the Mix will be released exclusively for Wii this autumn.
