Speaking with THE STAR, Konshens says the song which is called Jamaican Dance also features Elephant Man.
"The people from the company that were doing the video game linked me to put vocals on the track. It was done specifically for that," he said, noting he was chosen based on his clarity, melody and lyrics.
A major achievement, Konshens says he is grateful.
"Just another milestone, a good achievement. Time to move on to the next level. I am excited nonetheless because it is a good opportunity," he said.
In addition to being featured on the video game, Konshens says a music video will also be done to accompany the single that will be on iTunes.
Meanwhile, the artiste is still basking in the success of his recent two-month European tour alongside Darrio and his Subkonshus Band. During the tour, they visited places like Israel, France, Austria, Portugal, Germany, Switzerland and Sweden.

Carrying on his father's legacy, Buju son Mark Myrie has started producing under his own record label, Markus Records.
The 17-year-old former student of Meadowbrook High School, who goes by the name Markus, said he has been producing for four years but went professional with the craft a year ago.
"I've always had the love for music and I grew up around it ... Especially with my father and the situation, I decide to lift up the banner and continue the legacy," he told THE STAR.
Markus said his father, who is currently serving a prison sentence in the United States, partially influenced his decision to enter music.
"He influenced it 50 per cent because just by being around him and seeing how he does it, plus the success, it just attracted me from I was young. Apart from that, I have a natural love for music. In a sense, I want to lift up the banner and show dem seh things can still gwaan," he said, while reluctant to state whether or not he will be dabbling into recording songs of his own.
While his father was on bail in December, Markus said he got the opportunity to record a song with him that is called Lose Your Love. Since then, he also produced the 'Beating Stick' rhythm that features Gaza Beating Stick by Ryno (formerly Blak Ryno). He said he has also produced songs for DJ Sunshine, Lutan Fyah, KipRich and Calibre, as well as his artistes Humble Lion and Minando.
Currently completing an audio engineering course at Creative Production and Training Centre, Markus said he also plans to release another song with Ryno called Wine Me. In addition, he said he looks forward to working with every artiste in the industry as he does not plan to segregate himself
Andrew Holness and his wife Juliet with their children, Adam (left) and Andrew Jr, after the ceremony.
Jamaica's ninth prime Minister, Andrew Holness, was sworn in during a ceremony yesterday on the lawns of Kings House, St Andrew.
Holness took up the mantle during a well-organised ceremony before a large crowd of well-attired personalities.
In his near hour-long inaugural address, the 39-year-old Holness said that the country was yearning for a new politics to emerge.
"Zones of political exclusion are incompatible with freedom and aspects of our politics are an affront to liberty," Holness said after being sworn.
"It is time to end garrison politics now," he declared.
In an invitation similar to one extended by his predecessor Bruce Golding, Holness extended his hand for Opposition Leader Portia Simpson Miller to walk with him in areas generally regarded as garrison communities.
PORTMORE Empire artiste Shawn Storm is now in police custody.
The dancehall entertainer was turned in to the police by his attorney Michael Deans this morning.
Police, who have embarked on mission to crack up the Gaza gang which is aligned to embattled deejay Adijah 'Vybz Kartel' Palmer, went to Shawn Storm's mother's house on Saturday in an effort to take him in after he was named as a person of interest.
Police sources indicate that Shawn Storm will be interrogated within 12 hours.
Deans told the Observer that the entertainer has not yet been told why he was named a person of interest.
Meanwhile, Vybz Kartel is expected to answer to murder, conspiracy, and firearm charges later this week in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court.
Long standing dancehall Sting, dubbed 'The Greatest One Night Show On Earth,' promises to have tongues wagging yet again.
With a host of different controversies surfacing in the dancehall arena recently, Isaiah Laing of Supreme Promotions predicts a night of warfare hence the theme 'Rumours of War'.
"The buzz is already in the streets. See, THE STAR already hear suh yu can just imagine," he laughed.
According to Laing, who was chilling with his 'war' team member Heavy D at their 'war office', the public is demanding a lyrical battle and as such, this musical war would be delivered.
"Sting has always had a clash to make it Sting. Our best years at Sting we had clashes. The streets are asking for it. Last year, we tried the church thing and it did not work so we are going back to the real Sting, you can't teach an old dog new tricks," he said.
