Dance Central Getting Justice and More in New DLC
The Kinect might not be pumping out exciting new releases, but one game is worth coming back to. That game is, of course, Dance Central, and developer Harmonix is trying to keep us gamers around with regular DLC releases. It's not quite Rock Band, but these releases are being produced more often.
The new tracks come from three very different artists. First up is Justice with “D.A.N.C.E.” The French dance group has been featured in commercials, episodes of Top Gear, and more (including advertisements for "Wiiwaa"), so their inclusion in Dance Central was inevitable. I'm a fan, and this is the one song I'm most excited about.
Next up is Dem Franchize Boys with “Lean Wit It, Rock Wit It”, a song that, under normal circumstances, wouldn't impress me, but in the context of Dance Central is probably a lot of fun.
Lastly, we have “Wild Thing” by Tone Lōc. This song complements the techno and modern rap with some early 90s happy rap. If nothing else, the selection certainly gives players some perspective.
Tomorrow, the three new tracks will be available for purchase, bringing the total DLC track list to twenty. That makes for a total of 52 tracks, if you bought them all. Not too shabby, except if you were to buy the game and all the tracks, it would run you about $100. Suddenly I feel a bit dirty.
