Announcing Dance Central Spotlight!

After many months of having to sit on my hands as I watched fans bemoan the lack of a new game (really, guys, it was so hard not to say anything!), I am psyched to finally get to share the news that we are making a new Dance Central! This new game focuses in on the most important part of the dance game experience: dancing. Check out the highlights in the press release below, and keep an eye on this blog, as we’ve got a lot of cool things to talk about before the game launches in September. That’s right, you don’t even have to wait that much longer!

Dancers everywhere, may I introduce to you: Dance Central Spotlight.

Cambridge, MA – June 9th, 2014 – Harmonix is pleased to announce Dance Central™ Spotlight, the newest game in the award-winning motion franchise, will be available exclusively as a digital download on Xbox® One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft®, this fall.
