Tecmo announced today that it has licensed three Aerosmith songs for use in the Xbox-exclusive DEAD OR ALIVE 3.
Equipped with 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound, DEAD OR ALIVE 3 will feature the Aerosmith songs "Amazing", "Home Tonight", and "Nine Lives".
"Many of us, both young and old, have grown up listening to songs by Aerosmith, and it's an honor for us to feature their music in our biggest game of the year," said Isamu Fukada, president of Tecmo. "Aerosmith is one of the great American rock bands, and their popularity further adds to the mainstream appeal of DOA3. Also, gamers with a surround sound system will be able to fully enjoy the sounds and music of DOA3."
"We have very high expectations for this title," said J Allard, general manager for Microsoft's Xbox games division. "DEAD OR ALIVE 3 exercises the full power of Xbox, through the intense graphics and use of its Dolby Digital 5.1 audio capabilities, allowing Tecmo to follow Microsoft in the pursuit to provide gamers with the most powerful gaming experience ever. DOA3 is the total package. It has mind-blowing graphics, outstanding gameplay, and now, incredibly noteworthy music as well. This is one of the most talked-about titles for Xbox, and now Aerosmith's involvement adds even more to its uniqueness."
Excellent news for rock fans. In a strange coincidence, I'm actually heading out next week to see Aerosmith perform. Not really sure why that's important, but humor me.
