Dancing really well and burning fat at the same time: That's what the trendy fitness sport "Zumba" promised at the time. Even though dancing continued in many fitness and dance studios around the world, the Zumba movement was rather quiet. That could change from November, when the dance game “Zumba – Burn it up” will be a new offshoot for everyone who wants to celebrate their fitness party at home. 

Zumba here, Zumba there, Zumba everywhere. With the release of the dance game "Zumba - Burn it up" for Nintendo Switch, you can dance anywhere - even in front of the nearest fast food restaurant - instead of just in front of your home TV. The publisher 505 Games brings back a real trend with the new dance game. The title will be released in North America on November 19th and three days later, on November 22nd, also in Europe. The game can already be pre-ordered. 

Sweat with the Switch: the Zumba trend is returning

Sweating and looking pretty good at the same time: With a few learned Zumba moves, sports enthusiasts could impress their friends from November. The dance party is supposed to be "hotter than ever", promises the publisher 505 Games: "Zumba - Burn it up" invites dance enthusiasts of all ages and fitness levels to take part in energetic choreographies to over 30 hip-circling motivating jams, including chart- Hits by Cardi B, Bad Bunny & J Balvin, Ciara, Steve Aoki, Daddy Yankee, Play-N-Skillz & Elvis Crespo, Bomba Estéreo and DJ Ricky Luna ft. Nando Boom & Hisatomi, accompanied by a catalog of heart-pounding Zumba originals, that gets the local dance fitness party rolling.

Three different game modes will be available: "Single Song", "Full Class" and the hot "Fitness Party". The first two modes will support the participation of up to four players - assuming the appropriate hardware, of course. The game was developed by Kuju Games, the studio that was also responsible for Guitar Hero Live. 

The list of features is based on what players can expect from a dance game:

The focus of "Zumba - Burn it up" are the players, but above all their Joy-Cons. The innovative control technology aims to track the player's dance moves as they perform the moves of the on-screen dancing professionals. A total of three real Zumba trainers should really heat up fitness fans.
