Michael Jackson fans will be able to don a replica of the departed superstar’s famous glove as they perform his renowned dance moves, while playing the Wii version of Michael Jackson: The Experience.
According to IGN, a special edition of the title for the Nintendo Wii will include a replica white glove which the King of Pop wore. This packed-in glove will only be available at launch in specially marked boxes at no additional cost. It does not boast any motion-based capabilities though. 
“One of the most iconic symbols of Michael Jackson’s music and performance legacy is his signature glove,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Ubisoft.
The game will be launched in November on the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Nintendo DS, as well as the PlayStation Portable (PSP).
Ubisoft has stated that players will be able to fill the shoes of Michael Jackson by re-living his most iconic performances through their own singing and dancing. They can do this while utilising Microsoft’s Kinect motion-based, controllerless system for the Xbox 360 as well as the PS3’s PlayStation Move motion-based controllers.
The company has also revealed two more tracks that will feature in the game, which are Speed Demon and Dirty Diana.
The number of in-game track that have been revealed currently stand at 15 and these are: 
Beat It
Billie Jean
Black or White
Dirty Diana
Earth Song
Rock with You
