Holiday Gift Guide: Kinect Dance Central 2 for Xbox 360

Premier music video game developer Harmonix expands the "Dance Central" universe with new simultaneous multiplayer, voice controls and all-new routines set to an unstoppable soundtrack featuring Usher, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, 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!

Jumping into a routine is as simple as telling Kinect the song, mode, and difficulty and instructing it do what that little box has always dreamed of - "Xbox, dance." Getting into the groove is easier than ever before the main menu is voice enabled to help you get to the dance floor in a hurry, and commands in Break It Down let you set the pace for your rehearsal sessions without missing a step. Need a break? Just say "Xbox, Pause."

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 choose a crew to go head-to-head with a friend in a fierce Dance Battle. And things get really interesting during Dance Battle when the all new Free-4-All minigame appears, allowing players to quickly perform moves worth tons of points and jump ahead in score. Players can drop in or out at any point during a song, so the party never has to stop!

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 reasonable fee. The "Dance Central 2" 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!

"Dance Central 2" provides detailed full-body per-limb feedback for each player, allowing them to refine their moves. A reimagined "Break It Down" mode lets dancers dive even deeper into practicing, and all new authentic original choreography continues to set the bar for full body dance games! 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.

Crews are the perfectly paired partners with unique personalities that make up the world in "Dance Central 2." In addition to playing along with them in Perform It and Break It Down, you'll also be able to choose which crew you rep in Dance Battle. Unsure which crew best represents you? You'll get a chance to meet all of them and test your mettle with the "Crew Challenge", Dance Central 2's campaign mode. More on Crew Challenge later this fall!

Dance Central is all about learning real routines with full body choreography. "Dance Central 2"'s completely redesigned Break it Down mode lets you get into the groove better than ever before. Customize practice sessions to focus on select moves, and use the power of Kinect's voice commands to move your rehearsal along or slow down. You can even record yourself dancing a move and compare video with an onscreen dancer.
