“Our Zumba Fitness games combine both dance and fitness with fun, high-energy choreography, contagious music and multiplayer functionality that lets friends and family join the party,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. “Zumba Fitness Rush is packed with features and improvements that Kinect fans have asked for—from licensed music to a calorie tracker, 40+ all new routines with more than twice the dance styles of the original, a custom playlist feature and online connectivity. This is an incredibly robust experience that fans will love.”
Rush will also feature six instructors get you moving to the beat, including celebrity instructors Beto Perez, Tanya Beardsley and Gina Grant, plus new stars exclusive to the Kinect game: Kass Martin, Jason Thompson and Erica Pierce. Each personality will instruct in choreography ranging from Merengue and Samba to Bollywood and Latin Pop.
If that wasn’t enough, a newly added Progress Tracker has been included, which will add up calories burned, grade dance styles, and display ranks, trophies and stats.
