Metallica Corners Video Game Market, Set To Score "Little King's Story"

After the crushing success of Guitar Hero: Metallica, released just three days ago March 29 for Wii, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 aboard a tidal wave of rave reviews, the thrash band has signed on to write and produce the entire score for the July 23 Wii release “Little King's Story.”

While some critics are calling the soundtrack just another money scheme, the legendary Bay-area quartet beg to differ.

“I think Guitar Hero is a great gateway drug,” frontman James Hetfield told a Rolling Stone reporter at the recent SXSW conference when discussing Metallica's video game future. “Technology’s always been a way for us to get our music out there and this is another prime example,” he said of the new venture.

Few other details have yet been released, so it remains uncertain if “Little King's Story” is a wholly independent and imaginary creation by video game developers, or if it's actually a reflection on the alternate reality that drummer Lars Ulrich's pocketbook lives in.

What's Next?
