We had a chance to check out Harmonix’s upcoming game Dance Central late yesterday at E3 and I’m happy to report that the game is pretty awesome. Utilizing Microsoft’s Kinect for XBox 360, players are able to dance and control the game without any kind of controller.
In fact, you are the controller and your movements make your avatar perform. It’s pretty amazing and when watching it in person the movement and control were pretty seamless. The game itself is a progression of dance riffs you have to emulate with the on-screen dancers in order to advance.
The dancers in the short video we took make it look pretty easy but let me assure you, it isn’t as easy as it looks. Sadly, the video of me actually attempting to play the game has mysteriously disappeared.
But rest assured, you will get the idea from these others doing their thing. Don’t worry, you’ll get your chance to dance soon when the game is released. Until the check out this short video of the game after the break.
