Activision is looking to deliver, once again, this fall, the sequel to the surprisingly successful DJ Hero. For fans of the upcoming game, Activision has been hard at working mixing up some good news for you.

Today, Activision announced that legendary turntable musician DJ Qbert will be joining the ranks of other DJ’s in DJ Hero 2. DJ Qbert has won multiple worldwide competitions and is highly regarded within the DJ world. The renowned DJ had this to say regarding the announcement:

“I’m excited about finally getting to bring the art of turntablism’s defining skills, as well as two exclusive mixes, to DJ Hero 2. It’s been a dream of mine as a gamer to battle myself on the turntables and now millions of fans around the world and their friends will get their chance to also.”

Continuing, was Tim Riley, Vice President of Music Affairs for Activision:

“As a pioneer of his craft, DJ Qbert’s one-of-a-kind scratch and battle skills made him an amazing partner and prefect representative of DJ Hero 2’s new multiplayer modes, especially the unique DJ vs. DJ battle mixes.

“We’re bringing together the biggest and best DJ’s from around the globe, having already announced Deadmau5 and David Guetta as part of our incredibly talented crew, and having DJ Qbert cut up records in his signature style will help us put an indelible stamp on the DJ Hero 2 soundtrack.”

We can only hope this newest addition will only add to the authentic experience Activision is trying to create with DJ Hero 2. DJ Hero 2 will hit the PlayStation 3, Wii and the Xbox 360 this October.
