Looks like what they say about Michael Jackson becoming more valuable as a dead man rings true. If you know of a fan of the King of Pop who still does not get enough of his legacy after watching the This Is It documentary from a custom-made flash drive, buying all the albums he or she may have missed, watching Moonwalker for the nth time, you would either want to tell this news to your friend or keep it for the sake of his/ her own sanity.

A Michael Jackson-themed MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) will be launched in late 2011 by SEE Virtual Worlds entitled “Planet Michael.”

According to its official press release, Planet Michael consists of entire continents that are created to “celebrate Michael’s unique genius in a way that underscores his place as the greatest artist of all time.” It will function both as an online game and a social network.

They have yet to reveal how the game works, whether the players will dance their way to become the flashiest MJ wannabe around or fight evil creatures and save Michael, the God of All Things Genius, from the claws of an evil media conglomerate. The game will be free to play, which means players can download the software without paying a single cent, but you may need to purchase upgrades for a more fulfilling gaming experience.
