Zumba Fitness 2 is a video game[1] developed by Zoë Mode and was published by Majesco Entertainment based on the Zumba program. It is a sequel to Zumba Fitness. It was released first on the Wii in November 2011 and then on Kinect for Xbox 360 in February 2012 under the title Zumba Fitness Rush.[2][3]

Gameplay[edit]

Players can learn and perfect nine different dance styles: Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and Calypso as well as new routines including the Axe, Indian, Latin Pop, Bellydance and Pasodoble.,[4] led by Zumba creator Beto and celebrity instructors Gina Grant and Tanya Beardsley. New features include a calorie tracker, revamped gameplay, and graphical representations of the instructors.

Soundtrack[edit]

The game uses licensed tracks for its soundtrack, which includes "Pause" by Pitbull as the game's theme song. Other songs for the game include a Zumba version of "Poison" by Nicole Scherzinger, and "We No Speak Americano" by Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP.

"Pause" is featured uncut on the Wii version, with the Kinect version using the edited "Zumba Mix" of the track.

Reception[edit]

The Xbox 360 version received mainly unfavorable reviews, most notably due to the lack of online multiplayer from Zumba Fitness.
