It’s been a while, Dance Hero. And by a while, I mean three years, with the initial trademark registration for the dance-em-up dating as far back as 2008, but now it’s back with a fresh set of rumours, courtesy of Kotaku.
“Activision seems intent to carry on and release at least one new musical game,” says the site, “as Kotaku has learned that work is finally underway on a new franchise, called, yes, Dance Hero.”[drop]They even reckon they know some of the tracks – Jay Sean’s 2012, Prodigy’s Out of Space, Timbaland’s The Way I are and Afrojack’s Take Over Control. Dancy.
The odd thing about this? Activision won’t (surely) be able to flog another plastic controller – Kinect is obviously all set up for dancing games, and there’s at least some elements of the Wii and Move that could be used, even if it’s just for arm movements.
Of course, this all flies in the face of the recent stories regarding the other Hero titles…
We’ll wait and see what happens.
