Harmonix has announced that Dance Central 3, the latest installment in its popular Kinect rhythm game series, will be coming to Xbox 360 this October. U.S., Canada, and Latin America will get to groove on October 16, while Europe, Asia, Australia, and Japan will be able to do the same on October 19.
To accompany the release dates, Harmonix also lifted the veil on 11 previously unannounced tracks to be included in the game’s soundtrack. Among others, the list of new songs includes “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back)” by the Backstreet Boys, “Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice, and “Y.M.C.A.” by the Village People. There’s some nostalgia for you.
The studio has confirmed that over 40 total tracks will be included on the disc at launch, while all previous on-disc and downloadable songs from the first two Dance Central titles will be backwards compatible with Dance Central 3 when it launches this fall.
