Developed by 7 Studios with creative input from music legend Quincy Jones III, CEO and chief creative officer of QD3 Entertainment and music producer for top artists Tupac Shakur, LL Cool J and Ice Cube, among others, Scratch combines free-form DJ tricks with great rhythm game-play. Scratch is set in distinctive urban environments and features songs from the biggest names in Hip Hop.
Featuring game-play similar to top-selling rhythm games, Scratch players use a realistic turn-table controller, the Scratch Deck, created by Numark, the world's largest manufacturer of DJ equipment, to manipulate music tracks in real-time. Players can choose from a diverse array of DJ personalities to make their way from garage DJ to scratch-master of the hottest nightclubs.
It's apparent DJ Travis knows how truly talented he is, in spite of his laid back demeanor. As self-assured as he is, DJ Travis never demonstrates a hint of cockiness. He's comfortable with himself and doesn't care if you think he's cool or not. Although, it's impossible not to think he's cool when he makes scratching look effortless. DJ Travis is often described by his friends as an urban skater whose hip style reflects the skaters at Venice Beach.
DJ Sakura is not as sweet and innocent as she looks, although her perpetually happy and bubbly persona may be deceiving. Her skill and speed behind the decks is often underestimated, but this young up and coming DJ is eager to make her mark in Scratch City. Known to her friends as J-Girl, this expressive chick is just grateful for the opportunity to mix beats.
Scratch: The Ultimate DJ will be available on multiple next generation game systems, and is currently scheduled to arrive in stores spring 2009.
