Electronic Arts announced today that that their upcoming [I]The Urbz: Sims in the City[/I] game will feature some exclusive sounds from The Black Eyed Peas, one of the year’s hottest bands. The main thing in particular that makes this announcement more interesting is the fact that they are going to re-record nine of their songs for the game in the Simlish language, marking the first time a group has gone back to the studio to redo a song in this nature.
“The collaboration with iTunes and A&M Records is part of a massive launch planned for The Urbz: Sims in the City,” said Nancy Smith, Executive Vice President and General Manager of North American Publishing at Electronic Arts. “As the spin-off to the best selling PC game of all time, The Sims, The Urbz: Sims in the City will benefit from one of the most extensive music partnership in the history of EA.”
[I]The Urbz: Sims in the City[/I] will available for all major platforms and will be released later this year.
