Majesco Entertainment Announces ‘Dance Sensation!’ For Wii(TM)
Interactive Dance Game Moves Aspiring Dancers With Four Popular Dance Styles
EDISON, N.J., Dec 14, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX News Network/ — Get ready for the recital of a lifetime as Majesco Entertainment Company (Nasdaq: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announces Dance Sensation! for Wii(TM). Now young girls can live out their dance fantasy on their living room stage with the only game that lets players train and perform routines in four different styles: Hip-Hop, Jazz, Ballet, and Salsa.
“Dance is an incredibly popular activity for young girls yet there is an absence of dance products available for this demographic,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco Entertainment. “Dance Sensation! was specifically designed for this audience and its combination of dance styles lets female players perform and actually learn real dance moves as they play.”
Becoming a skilled dancer doesn’t just take talent; it takes dedication and hard work to be the best! In Dance Sensation!, players hit the studio with their teacher to practice for their upcoming stage performances. Across Hip Hop, Jazz, Ballet and Salsa, players use the Wii Remote(TM) and Nunchuk(TM) to control their on-screen dancer as she perfects more than 160 real motion-captured dance moves that get progressively more complex. After studio training in front of a mirror, it will be time to raise the curtain and turn on the spotlights! Players will perform in recitals in a variety of venues, from local auditoriums to the Broadway stage.
No recital is complete without a glamorous presentation. Girls can customize their dancer with a variety of costumes and unlockable hairstyles. Creative play also extends to the Dance Workshop Mode that lets aspiring dancers choreograph their own custom routines that they can record and share with friends. In addition, competitive players can dance with or compete against another player in Multiplayer Mode. Featuring licensed music tracks and Wii Motion Plus(TM) support for more accurate motion based play, Dance Sensation! lets girls be sensational dancers whether they’re new to dance or train regularly.
Developed by Alpine Studios, Dance Sensation! is designed exclusively for Wii(TM) and expected to release in April 2010. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
