Deadmau5 and his fans have had a special relationship with gaming over the years, and now they’ll have the chance to play in character as their favorite DJ/producer.

A new event titled “Ghosts’N DJs,” inspired by the classic arcade hit Ghosts’N Goblins and fully created by the house music legend Dr. Kucho!, is a pixel-art run-and-gun action platform set in a parallel universe where the music landscape is being dominated by imposter artists and DJs.

A reflection of his own life, it makes sense that fans can play as Deadmau5 himself and the game’s soundtrack includes the Canada native’s classic tracks “Polaris,” “4Ware,” “GG” and “Three Pound Chicken Wing.” Check out a trailer for the new offering below.
