Harmonix Heads Back To The Dance Floor With Dance Central 2!

Today at the Microsoft E3 Media Briefing, Harmonix Music Systems, the premier music video game developer, gave the world its first look at Dance Central™2, the highly anticipated sequel to the first controller-free, full body-tracking, fully immersive dance video game, available exclusively on Kinect™ for Xbox 360®.

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

The title was revealed during an on stage performance by Harmonix. The demonstration showed off simultaneous full body tracking for two players, drop-in/drop-out functionality, and more amazing authentic choreography. Dance Central 2 will be playable on the E3 Expo floor within the Microsoft Booth.

Along with the announcement, Harmonix unveiled the first batch of new dance hits and booty-shaking classics from the Dance Central 2 soundtrack. Fans will be able to import songs from the original Dance Central disc and add-on content for the game into their Dance Central 2 Music Library, with access to more than 100 songs will be available at launch!* Dance Central 2 will feature an unparalleled on-disc soundtrack, including:

Available later this year, Dance Central 2 also 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 also released a behind the scenes video today, giving fans of the Dance Central franchise their first look at Dance Central2 from inside Harmonix. The video is available here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XaHh_NtopSE
