Zumba Fitness: World Party (a.k.a. Zumba Fitness 4) is the fourth video game in the installment of the Fitness series, with this game being the sequel to Zumba Fitness Core (2012). This game is based on the Zumba program as it was then later followed by Zumba Kids (2013).[1] The game was developed by Zoë Mode and published by Majesco Entertainment. It was released for current-generation consoles on 5 November 2013 in the United States and was also released on 22 November 2013 for Xbox One as a launch title.

Gameplay[edit]

There are 45 pre-set classes as well as customizable workouts. Players can learn different dance styles, including salsa, hip-hop, Tahitian, calypso, Bollywood, cumbia, reggaeton and Irish step. The world tour mode allows players to unlock songs from seven global destinations.

The "Progress Tracker Plus" tallies all of a player's statistics, including technique score, calories burned and goals met. Players can set personal fitness goals or work towards pre-set goals to unlock bonus rewards. Motivational rewards include behind-the-scenes videos, passport stamps, postcards, souvenirs, fitness tips and achievements. Low-, medium- and high-intensity routines are available, along with expanded tutorials.

Two-player support is available on Xbox One and Kinect for Xbox 360. Four-player support is available on Wii U and Wii.

Over 40 songs, both Zumba originals and licensed tracks, will be featured in the soundtrack.[2]
