Harmonix already on Dance Central 2

Series "can spark a phenomenon".

Guitar Hero creator Harmonix is already fleshing out Dance Central 2 for Kinect.

The first game will be a launch title for Microsoft's motion-sensing camera on 4th November in the US and 10th November here in Europe.

"We're looking at basic pre-production for Dance Central 2 but are mostly working on DLC right now," project lead Kasson Crooker told MCV.

"We want to make sure people like Dance Central first. If that happens, we can look at what they enjoyed about that experience and decide if we want to offer an addition to it."

Harmonix boss Alex Rigopulos added: "I think that Dance Central has an opportunity to spark a phenomenon, much like the original Guitar Hero did."

Dance Central features a on-screen avatar shimmying along to various pop delights: Beastie Boys, Rihanna, M.I.A, etc. Your challenge will be copying what virtual he or she is doing on the screen - and your whole body's movement will be scrutinised courtesy of Kinect.

Dance Central was playable at this year's Eurogamer Expo - what did you think?
