Psy, Gangnam Style, 2NE1, I am the Best, Xbox, Dance Central
Dance Central 3 Producer Wants to Make Gangnam Style into a DLCThe producers of the Xbox 360 game, 'Dance Central' have visited Korea.
Yesterday, they attended a Xbox 360 event and demonstrated the new dances for the new 'Dance Central 3' game.
The director also showed their happiness in being able to be in Korea, which is the hometown of girl group2NE1. The group's song, "I am the Best" is included in this new game.
Q. What 'mode' is seen as the main focus of this game?
A. The 'party time' mode is the main point for this game. This 'mode' was created due to the complaints of users saying that it was hard to navigate through the menu. This mode allows the users to have fun through a karaoke machine or juke box and stand in front of the kinect monitor when a song they want to dance to comes on.
Q. Could you explain to us about the 'team dance battle' mode?
A. This mode allows up to 8 people to split into teams and dance battle back and forth. Other rules are included in this game to make it more fun. In one random battle, there is something called a 'flash board' and the person who is able to complete this dance receives more points.
Q. Is there another mode that you would like to introduce to us that is not in this demo?
A. I want to introduce three modes. First would be the 'Rhythm matching' mode where people can just freely dance along to the music. Second would be the 'make your own dance' mode where one person makes up a dance move and the other follow and vice versa. Third would be the 'Hold a pose' mode where people can make up funny poses to break the ice for people who are embarrassed to dance.
Q. Out of the three modes, which one is your favorite?
A. My favorite would have to be the 'Make Your Own Dance Move' mode. It's fun for friends to be able to say, "Can you do this?" and make funny poses. It's more fun and less embarrassing to know that it's a game rather than just doing it.
Q. How many songs will be included in this game?
A. 'Dance Central 3' will have 45 songs in total along with 1 secret song. 2NE1's "I am the Best" is also the first Korean song to be in the game.
Q. What is your reason for putting in 2NE1's song?
A. I am a huge K-Pop fan. I even bought the shoes that 2NE1 modeled for. I was so excited that I would be able to follow their dance moves on this game. I hope that the girls know how I feel about them.
Q. Is there anyone in particular that helped out with the making of this game?
A. Usher stands out to me the most. He showed off really great dance skills for this game. His hard dance moves gave dancers a hard time when trying to follow them in the game.
Q. Lastly, is there anything you would like to say to Korea's gamers?
A. We hope that everyone will be able to enjoy our new game. We are happy to see K-Pop expanding out into the world. We are also in love with Psy's "Gangnam Style." We would love to put this song into a DLC. Someone please contact us!
