E3 2011: Michael Jackson: The Experience coming to 3DS, PSP

Earlier in the year, console gamers were given the chance to moonwalk with the King of Pop, dancing along to a bunch of Michael Jackson's classic tracks.

Ubisoft has now revealed that Nintendo 3DS and Sony NGP gamers will also get the chance to sing along to the likes of 'Billie Jean', 'Smooth Criminal', and 'Thriller', as Michael Jackson: The Experience lands on the next-gen portable consoles later this year.

Coming sometime around Christmas, the game is set to be more of a rhythm game than its home console counterparts, with players tapping along to the beat and drawing along lines to match choreographies.

15 of MJ's greatest hits will be available to play along with, as you're invited to draw special shapes to act out his dance moves, and even create your own shapes to represent his moves.

The official video for each song will also be available, giving the game some real atmosphere. Here's hoping the game will provide a good memory of the legend later this year.

Check out the gameplay video for the 3DS version below.
