I have personal experience with the Zumba Fitness craze that has been going on over the last few years and I’m excited about how Majesco Entertainment has been utilizing the Kinect for their series. The unique thing with Zumba is its ability to disguise the fact that you’re exercising with great music and moves you’ll see while out at the club and the Kinect adds a progression system to help with that motivation. With Zumba Fitness Rush, Majesco looks to incorporate a brand new instructor mode that will add another layer of motivation to help players get off their couches and start breaking a sweat. These instructors will range from professional ones and one special young lady that won the Zumba Fitness Rush contest that was held last year.
Majesco Entertainment’s Zumba® Fitnesss Rush stars a new certified Zumba® Fitness instructor who’s about to take you behind the scenes for an exclusive sneak peek at what goes into making the most anticipated fitness video game of 2012! Download the behind the scenes video and follow the journey of Erica Pierce, who won the opportunity to join the celebrity cast of in-game Zumba® Fitness instructors in an online video contest.
Zumba® Fitness Rush, the most advanced, feature-rich addition to the Zumba® Fitness video game franchise that’s sold more than 4 million copies worldwide, is headed to Kinect™ for Xbox 360® this February. The exhilarating dance-fitness party is packed with 10 more routines, 5 new venues, 3 additional instructors – plus exclusive Kinect features like voice control, online connectivity, and post-launch DLC support. Get a total body workout with 42 sizzling new songs and routines, 10 of which are exclusive to Kinect, including contagious Zumba originals and tracks from hot artists like Pitbull and Nicole Scherzinger. Dance 24 international dance styles as you party yourself into shape – that’s twice the number of styles included in the original Zumba® Fitness game, and more than any other dance game. Six superstar Zumba instructors guide you through each routine in a variety of new, exclusive arenas, while the new Progress Tracker calculates calories burned so you can maximize your workout. Learn the Steps training mode breaks down the core dance styles into the basics while a new move cue system helps new players anticipate upcoming moves. Zumba® Fitness Rush invites you to lose yourself in the music with a fun, effective workout that makes you forget you’re even exercising.
It is fantastic to see that they’ve chosen a real Zumba enthusiast to be the new instructor for the game and great to see how much genuine love she has for Zumba. If you’ve been contemplating making good on your weight-loss resolutions, than Zumba Fitness Rush is a great move in the right direction.
