Some video games have all the luck.
In this case the popular FIFA franchise has captured one of the most popular hit tunes in recent years for their FIFA 15 video game. None other than fan favorites Bruno Mars and Mark Ronsonâ€™s â€œUptown Funkâ€ has been added to the game.
This hit tune debuted in November 2014 and has dominated the charts in the US and abroad. People have been dancing to it almost nonstop for three months now and the popularity of Mars and Ronson has skyrocketed even more. Having the song included in the video game gives the game a modern and upbeat flavor.
This comes in the form of a FIFA 15 gamer who included the tune in a celebration sequence of the game.
This video is a riot. It features players dancing to the popular song that has ruled for five weeks straight at the top of the charts. Actually two game players have added the song to their celebratory videos. The game features soccer players and once a goal is made there is a celebratory dance and the â€˜Uptown Funkâ€™ song highlights the revelry.
In addition, the new stellar roster of players for the FIFA 15 game is extraordinary. This advances the video game to new heights and allows for players to feel like theyâ€™re right in the middle of the top soccer action.
EA knows what itâ€™s doing by ramping up the surprises to the FIFA 15 game and that means extra fun for all around as well as increased revenue. No mention of how much the company has to pay to license the names and images of the top players but itâ€™s a good bet itâ€™s well worth the money. This FIFA 15 Team Of The Week aka TOTW has the worldâ€™s top soccer players and the game works like a real game. Good graphics and gameplay, sound, and lots of extras for that big stadium event feel.
The roster of worldwide soccer pros shows that EA knows what the fans want. To see the top stars participating in the game is an acknowledgment to the game franchise. This should bring in new blood to the game and the online action should be something to behold to say the least. Just think of the big tournaments televised and fans going at it like the real pros. Could be stadium filling adventure like many of the top multiplayer video games.
