Dance Central 3 for Xbox 360

Update: Harmonix confirmed Dance Central: Spotlight during Microsoft's E3 press conference this morning. Spotlight will be a digital-only title released on the Xbox One this September.

Original Story: A new Dance Central game is in the works for the Xbox One, according to a newly discovered listing on the ESRB's website.

Besides its name--Dance Central: Spotlight--the listing reveals very little about the game itself. The brief description makes it sound a lot like previous Dance Central games. When it's released, it'll carry a Teen rating due to some of the included songs' lyrics, which point to Jason Derulo's "Talk Dirty" and Chris Brown's "Show Me" as being among the tracks you can dance along to.

In an interview with GameSpot last month, Microsoft's Yusuf Mehdi referenced Dance Central in a way that suggested a new one might be in the works. Harmonix hadn't said anything about working on a new Dance Central, but even with the Kinect no longer being sold with all Xbox One systems as of today, the company has reaffirmed it won't abandon Kinect development.

Microsoft's E3 press conference kicks off in less than an hour, so we should know more about Dance Central: Spotlight very soon. You'll be able to watch the conference live right here on GameSpot and follow our liveblog beginning at 9:30 a.m. Pacific time.

R.I.P. Krapnect. What's ironic is that Microsoft sold 5 times more Kinects when it was sold as a peripheral.

In my mind, I just dropped a Titan on this crap.

@gizmoryda  No way man, you can't hold this game back by making it previous gen compatible!  :)

There were never any games for it besides Dance games. All the posters that say Microsoft didn't give Kinect a chance with Xbone afre clueless; Kinect has 4 years to prove itself....the motion control fad is pretty much over
