Zumba Fitness Core Coming to Kinect and Wii
After Zumba Fitness Rush combined Zumba Fitness and Zumba Fitness 2 into one Xbox 360 Kinect package, Majesco is ready to unveil the next game in the franchise: Zumba Fitness Core for the Kinect and Nintendo Wii, planned for this October.
As its name suggests, Core will focus on tightening abs and burning belly fat. However, as it is a Zumba game, it will still offer the full-body fitness that fans have come to expect from the franchise.
After the franchise sold over 7 million copies world wide, it has become abundantly clear that Majesco is ready to storm the fitness and motion genres with popular franchise, attractive graphics, and interesting innovation (see NBA Baller Beats).
“We have realized tremendous success with our Zumba® Fitness franchise that now ranks as the #2 best-selling fitness game franchise of all time, second only to the Wii Fit™ series that pioneered the category,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “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. 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.”
“The same way Zumba® Fitness revolutionized the negative stigmas of fitness from the ‘no pain, no gain’ notion to the ‘no pain, ALL gain’ position, Zumba® Fitness is revolutionizing the idea of ab workouts,” said Jeffrey Perlman, Chief Marketing Officer, Zumba Fitness. “The days of crunches are over. Zumba® Fitness Core takes a new approach. Participants are standing up, rocking out to amazing music and getting the most effective ab sculpting workout in the market. It is the only party around where you don’t have to bring a six pack, but you may just walk out with one.”
Gamers get this ab-heavy work out from over 40 new songs and routines, spanning over 30 international dance styles. While Majesco is not ready to reveal the full track listing right now, it has hinted to tracks from artists like Enrique Iglesias and Don Omar.
Some of the dance routines and styles include Brazilian Funk, Polynesian, Celtic Bluegrass, Jive, Jazz, African and Disco (both complementing Salsa), Cumbia, Bollywood, and Raggaeton. Tutorials have been added to help players pick up the new steps from dances like Bollywood or Raggaeton.
The game will help players keep track of the fitness regimen with goals and diet and wellness tips.
New locations have been added to the game, including Tiki Beach, a Venetian ballroom, and Waterfall Resort.
Local multiplayer will allow two players on the Kinect and three players with the Wii controllers. Also, the Wii controllers use a belt to allow the action to remain hands free.
Zumba Fitness Core will hit the Xbox 360′s Kinect and the Nintendo Wii this October.
