505 Games and Majesco Entertainment Partnership to bring new Zumba and Phineas and Ferb titles to Europe
International publisher of video games, 505 Games, today announced they have extended their relationship with Majesco Entertainment to bring to market three new games: two within the hugely successful Zumba Fitness franchise and one for Phineas and Ferb, Disney’s smash hit kids brand.
Previously announced by Majesco for North American release, Zumba Fitness World Party will be released in Europe this November on Kinect for Xbox 360, Wii U and Wii, and later this year on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft.
Zumba Fitness World Party invites you to escape on a fitness adventure around the world. This culturally rich dance-fitness experience embodies Zumba’s inspiring global movement that reaches more than 185 countries. Burns up to 1,000 calories per hour as you immerse yourself in the movement and music of exotic destinations in this exhilarating at-home workout. Work your body to 40+ new high-energy routines and a world class soundtrack highlighted by Lady Gaga, Pitbull and Daddy Yankee. Zumba Fitness World Party also includes a new World Tour mode and brand new visual presentation that makes it feel like you’re actually on location around the world with Zumba’s celebrity instructors.
505 Games will also be publishing the recently announced Zumba Kids, the first brand extension of the best-selling franchise that’s custom-designed for younger players aged 7-12. Featuring a range of dance styles, creative mini-games, customization and chart-topping hits from Justin Bieber and Willow Smith, this engaging interactive experience is packed with gameplay to keep kids moving! Zumba Kids will be available in Europe on Kinect for Xbox 360 and Wii this November.
Phineas and Ferb: Quest for Cool Stuff is the final game in the new publishing partnership.
