Bring the fitness party home to your living room! Majesco Entertainment Company, an innovative provider of video games for the mass
market, and Zumba Fitness LLC, have announced that Zumba Fitness
is coming to Wii, PlayStation Move for the PlayStation3 computer
entertainment system, and Kinect for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment
system from Microsoft. This one-of-a-kind exercise program pairs Latin rhythms
with red-hot international dance steps so you can have a blast as you party your
way into shape.
"The astonishing success of Zumba globally is a testament to the
effectiveness of this very unique fitness program," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco. "The
advent of motion based platforms has enabled us to bring truly interactive
lifestyle games like Zumba Fitness to fruition. We believe this product
offers a genuine point of differentiation over other fitness games on the market
since it combines fitness and dance in one fun, innovative offering."
In Zumba Fitness, players can learn and perfect nine different dance
styles: Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and
Calypso. The game features 30 different infectious music tracks and routines —
some exclusive to the game — led by Zumba creator Beto and celebrity instructors
Gina Grant and Tanya
Beardsley. No matter what your skill level, Zumba Fitness is
accessible to all with Learn the Steps training, plus Beginner,
Intermediate and Advanced routines in five dynamic venues. As you hit each move
in rhythm with your on-screen Zumba instructor, the stage transforms into a high
voltage party atmosphere with special effects and additional crowd dancers.
Players can also grow that party at home with up to four players on Wii and
PlayStation Move, and up to two players on Kinect for Xbox 360.
Developed by Pipeworks Software, Zumba Fitness for Wii, Playstation
Move and Kinect is expected to release this holiday.
