Dance Central Spotlight (which is a side-off to Dance Central) is a game that will be released on September for Xbox One, available for 10 dollars in the marketplace and will also release the Xbox 360 version on a later date. It will have the same gameplay as the 3 ones before, just with more routines and daily DLCs. There are 5 "core" routines (Beginner, Easy, Medium, Hard, Pro), 2 fitness routines, and one extra routine per song. People start with 10 songs and have to buy the rest. Sadly, all routines have recycled moves from the other games, like Anaconda's ridicoulous routine has Party Rock Anthem, OMG and Beauty And A Beat. Another example is Black Widow, it has Umbrella's moves.


The characters returning are:

Collecting 600 dance moves unlocks 6 new characters under the "Classified" section

  • Alpha (Emilia)
  • Epsilon (Mo)
  • Beta (Aubrey)
  • Delta (Glitch)
  • Gamma (Taye)
  • Zeta (Bodie)

Trivia Edit

  • This is the first Dance Central game after Dance Central 3 and the first one after Harmonix's break back in 2013.
  • This is the first time not to include Angel, as he appeared and is the only one to be in every Dance Central except Spotlight. This does not include Dr. Tan or Shinju (called 'Twit-Torlep') as he made a rather cameo appearance in the end scene of the first Dance Central.
