We've reviewed Zumba Fitness World Party for the Xbox One. The popular exercise and fitness game has now made the jump to a smaller screen - Windows Phone. Albeit, it's not the exact same game, but it is from the same developer and the same Zumba series. It's called Zumba Dance and it's now available for Windows Phone 8 devices. Let's check it out.
Head to the Windows Phone Store and you'll see a new game from Majesco Entertainment. Zumba Dance brings one of the most popular dancing franchises to Windows Phone. With it you can expect to get feedback and encouragement while doing full dance routines. That's right. This game uses the front facing camera on your Windows Phone to give you a "Kinect-like" experience. Obviously it's not as accurate as Kinect, but it's pretty cool.
Zumba Dance offers rull routines, superstar Zumba instructors like Beto Perez, Gina Grant and Kass Martin. The game also features three hours of available routines with music from artists like LMFAO, Pitbull, Tieso, Kat Deluna, and Sean Paul. There are also original Zumba tracks available.
The game costs $4.99 and gives you a 20-minute workout. From there you can either purchase 3 pre-programmed 60 minute workouts or build your own playlist.
We're not seeing the game in the Windows Store yet, but we wouldn't be surprised to see a Windows 8 version real soon. In the meantime, you can go to the Windows Phone Store to grab Zumba Dance for Windows Phone. It costs $4.99 and doesn't include a trial. Download clocks in at 172MB, but you will need a phone with 1GB of RAM to play (Sorry Lumia 520 and friends).
Thanks for the tip Amir!
