Another game coming to Kinect this holiday season is Zumba Fitness. While I haven’t actually participated in any Zumba before, I have seen some local places advertising Zumba, so it isn’t surprise it will be a launch title for Kinect. Described as a one-of-a-kind exercise program which pairs Latin rhythms with red-hot dance steps so you can have fun as you dance your way into shape.
In Zumba Fitness, players can learn and perfect nine different dance styles: Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and Calypso. The game features 30 different music tracks and routines, and is led by “the” Zumba creator Beto and celebrity instructors Gina Grant and Tanya Beardsley.
Although we have the official trailer above, we couldn’t resist showing off this video of Evolved Gaming‘s Zac trying out Zumba Fitness.
