The fitness-game genre is getting some all-new entries this fall, but some of the more-popular fitness games are also getting franchise updates, as is the case with the latest Zumba Fitness title headed to the Xbox 360 and Wii this fall. Called Zumba Fitness Core, the game continues the series’ “dance-fitness party” mentality but has choreography designed to deliver tight and toned abs. Zumba Fitness Core will only have an Xbox 360 (via Kinect) and Wii version.
“We know from research that the #1 area women want to transform is their abs and Zumba® Fitness Core is the first and only video game to implement this consumer-driven feature,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “The core focus is in addition to content fans have asked for: more licensed tracks, new dance styles and additional fitness features designed to maximize your total body, at home workout.”
Zumba Fitness Core features 40 new songs and routines, more than 30 international dance styles from around the world, and new choreography designed to sculpt stronger abs through a full-body workout. Celebrity Zumba instructors guide players through moves set to contagious new original tunes and a broader mix of hits from well-known artists.
