Zumba Fitness Rush Official Launch Trailer

The September/October 2012 issue of The Dance Current print magazine includes an item about dance video games.”This scrapping of the screen trend and games such as TSDO [Top Secret Dance Off] seem to me a sort of liberation, interrupting the device-ism of video game technology, and bringing the focus back to individuals and their expressive potential, away from a hit machine that feeds the empty need for rampant consumerism.” By Lys Stevens, The Dance Current: Print, September/October 2012.Back in February, Majesco Entertainment released Zumba Fitness Rush, available exclusively on Kinect for Xbox 360. The game blew its predecessor, Zumba Fitness II (on Nintendo Wii), out of the water, featuring 50% more content: forty-two routines to hot new music tracks in twenty-four different dance styles from around the world, including merengue, swing, mambo and reggaetown. Enjoy voice control, two-player co-op support, a calorie burning monitor, customizable playlists, tiered intensity levels with a helpful tutorial mode, six instructors, fifteen venues (from Rio to Vegas), downloadable style packs and Kinect’s hands-free full body motion tracking.Check out the video below to see two more style packs: bollywood (released in May) and hip hop (released in August).Bollywood
