Michael Jackson's production company, MJJ, is working on a video game starring the King of Pop, according to reports.

The game, which is yet to be titled, is apparently due to be released by Christmas.

According to gaming website 9Lives, the video game will enable users to interact with Jackson's music and dance routines.

The release would not mark the first time Jackson has crossed over into the world of video games.

In 1990, the singer was the star of SEGA's Moonwalker, which was based on Jackson's film of the same name.

The game, which was released on both multi-platform consoles and arcade machines, also featured the singer's chimpanzee, Bubbles.

AEG deal

Jackson is due to begin his 50-date concert residency at London's O2 Arena next month.

The gigs form part of a wide-ranging deal between the singer and concert promoter AEG Live, which is also known to include a film deal.

Speaking earlier this year Randy Phillips, head of AEG Live, said: "If we complete the full three-and-a-half year plan, he could gross over $400m in that time.

"London could be north of $50m (£35m)."

At present, it is thought known whether a video game is part of Jackson's deal with AEG.
