Konami Digital Entertainment
has announced that Rhythm Party
, an all-new dance title for Xbox 360, will be available on February 1st via Xbox LIVE Arcade, priced 800 MS Points. The key to Rhythm Party is a total freedom of movement in front of the Kinect motion sensor peripheral. The new game offers 'open format'dancing so, unlike other music and dancing games, does not rely on contrived choreography. Instead, as the player's silhouette is shown on screen, players can move to the beat and groove freely to create their own performance. These dances are rated as they coincide with performance 'ripples' on screen, with points and bonuses awarded that bolster the player's score. Twelve screenshots
and a trailer have been added in our download area.
