Next month, French electro duo Daft Punk will join the likes of Black Eyed Peas and 50 Cent as characters in Activision’s forthcoming DJ Hero video game, giving turntable enthusiasts and gamers alike the option to manipulate avatars of the iconic, tripped-out robot-masked duo while virtually remixing a variety of their tracks.
Among the game’s 11 mixable Daft Punk songs will be two classic Daft Punk “Megamixes” that utilize samples of Daft Punk staples like “Around the World” as well as more under-the-radar cuts like “Television Rules the Nation.” Players will use DJ Hero‘s nifty turntable controller to rock the decks as Daft Punk, and perform in a virtual venue that mimics the duo’s far-out stage lighting.
Here’s the full list of DJ Hero‘s Daft Punk remixes — including N.A.S.A., Queen and No Doubt. DJ Hero hits North American stores Oct. 27.
