'Dance Central 2' (X360) Unveils April Release Schedule

by Rainier on April 9, 2012 @ 9:26 p.m. PDT

Dance Central 2 expands the Dance Central universe with new venues, characters and game modes. Players will meet new dance crews and be able to team up with their friends or challenge them to a head-to-head Dance Battle, proving once and for all who really has the best moves!

Harmonix expands the “Dance Central” universe with new simultaneous multiplayer and all-new routines set to an unstoppable soundtrack featuring Usher, Rihanna, La Roux, Nicki Minaj, Montell Jordan and more. Meet new dance crews and get down with friends to prove once and for all who really has the best moves!

It’s Party Time! “Dance Central 2” keeps the wildly addictive “Dance Central” experience going with a new focus on simultaneous multiplayer. Friends can team up in Perform It or go head-to-head in a simultaneous dance off within Dance Battle. Players can drop in or out at any point during a song, so the party never has to stop!

Pump Up the Volume. Continuing the tradition Harmonix pioneered with its “Rock Band” series, the library from the original “Dance Central” disc will be importable into “Dance Central 2” for a nominal fee.  “Dance Central 2”’s fully integrated in-game Music Store will allow players to expand their “Dance Central” libraries, with more than 40 additional tracks available at launch.* All told, more than 100 songs will be available to play in “Dance Central 2” at launch!

As Real As It Gets. “Dance Central 2” provides detailed per-limb feedback for each player, allowing them to refine their moves. A reimagining of “Dance Central”’s “Break-It-Down” mode lets dancers dive even deeper into move combinations and, for the first time, enables voice commands within the practice process! Harmonix continues to combine time-tested technical savvy and design polish with the fun and authenticity of the dance world to create an unparalleled dance experience.

Kick it with the Crews! “Dance Central 2” features a variety of new characters and fan favorites paired up as dance crews, each with custom outfits, backup dancers and signature venues.Emilia, the sporty fan favorite from “Dance Central,” teams up with new character Bodie to form “RipTide,” while “Dance Central”’s stand-out b-boy Mo joins newcomer Glitch to make up “Hi-Def.” Additionally, these crews call a brand new beachside city home, featuring all new venues, including a luxury yacht and a beachfront bash.

On April 10th, Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP’s “We No Speak Americano” hits the Dance Central 2 Music Store! The song was a hit when it released in 2010, and remains a popular dance track in clubs worldwide.

“Commander,” from Kelly Rowland’s 2010 album Here I Am, comes to the Music Store on April 17. A collaboration with producer David Guetta, “Commander” is sure to get your heart beating with its danceable, bouncy rhythm and “Hardcore” Dance Central 2 difficulty.

Pitbull’s “Give Me Everything,” featuring Ne-Yo, Afrojack and Nayer, caps off April’s Dance Central 2 add-on content. Off of 2011’s Planet Pit, “Give Me Everything” was one of 2011’s hottest and best-selling digital singles, with over 8 million sales worldwide! The track hits the Music Store on April 24.

All tracks will be available via in the Dance Central 2 in-game Music Store, or from the Xbox LIVE Marketplace for 240 MS Points each.
