Since the untimely death of the King of Pop, rumours have circulated that there had been a video game, starring the man himself, in production - a follow up to the "Michael Jackson's Moonwalker" series of games created by Sega.

Well, the deceased star's production company, MJJ Productions, has confirmed that it's been working on the game for "several months", and that it's planned for a Christmas 2009 "home console" release. Games business mag MCV reckons that means Xbox 360 and PS3.

A representative of the company said "I am sure it will still be released. Michael loved games". It's understood to feature speech from Jackson recorded before his death, as well as a number of his biggest hits.
