The fitness games just keep on coming, this time with the Nintendo Wii getting in on the action via the release of Zumba Fitness 2. Zumba Fitness 2 for Wii is the sequel to a game that sold more than 4 million units last year. This latest outing includes 24 new dance styles and all-new routines.
Majesco also included an interesting marketing tie-in this time around, as every copy of Zumba Fitness 2 includes a free seven-day pass to try a live Zumba class at a 24 Hour Fitness location. A digitized version of a 24 Hour Fitness rooftop is also featured in the game.
Zumba Fitness 2 allows players to customize their own class with their favorite routines and monitor the number of calories they’ve burned in the process. The game includes Single Song, Full Class and Multiplayer modes with support for up to four dancers, with routines ranging from Merengue and Hip-Hop to Bollywood and Latin Pop. The trainers/presenters players will encounter in Zumba Fitness 2 include Beto, Tanya Beardsley and Gina Grant.
Additional Zumba Fitness 2 features include:
- Get Lost in the Beat – 32 electrifying new routines and contagious music tracks with international beats that now include hits from today’s hot artists: Pitbull, Nicole Scherzinger and Yolanda Be Cool & DCup.
- Shake it in Style – From fan favorites like Salsa and Reggaeton to all new styles like Bollywood, Ragga, Latin Pop and Pasodoble, players can learn 24 different dance styles from all over the world. That’s more than twice the number in the original game.
- Customize Your Experience – Select your favorite routine in Single Song mode, take a class designed by Beto, Gina Grant or Tanya Beardsley, or craft your own playlist in Full Class mode. You can even take it slow in Learn the Steps tutorial mode before you dive into the choreography.
- Join the Party – Invite your friends to join the fun in multiplayer mode that supports up to four players.
- Location, Location, Location – Dance it up in five dynamic new environments, from a Miami Yacht to a Los Angeles nightclub.
- Dance Hands-Free – The exclusive Zumba® Fitness belt is included inside every box so you can holster your Wii Remote™ and naturally move to the music.
Zumba Fitness 2 for Nintendo Wii carries an MSRP of $39.99. Zumba Fitness Rush will launch on the Kinect for Xbox 360 in February 2012.
