SEGA releases Go Dance rhythm game on iOS
After announcing the game in late August, SEGA has announced the official lauch of Go Dance on iPhone and iPad. The game is the first true dancing rhythm game on an iOS device, and uses Extreme Reality’s motion-capture technology to track players’ movements using their device’s FaceTime Camera.
In Go Dance, players follow the moves of a dancer on screen, as dance prompts scroll across the bottom of the screen. Like console games Dance Central or Just Dance, movements in Go Dance are recognized by the game and scored based on accuracy in real-time. Players can share their high scores via Facebook or email.
Go Dance features only two pre-installed songs: “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO and “Super Bass” by Nicki Minaj. Two additional songs are available for purchase for $0.99 each: “Wild Ones” by Flo Rida and “Levels” by Avicii. SEGA promises additional songs will be added in the future, but whether they’ll be free or paid tracks remains to be seen.
Go Dance is now available to download for $1.99 on iPhone and iPad. The game is supported in both English and Japanese (additional languages coming soon), and also supports Airplay on iPad 4 and iPhone 5. This allows Apple TV users to push the game to their HDTVs for viewing on a larger screen.
You can follow the app’s progress on AppData, our tracking service for mobile and social apps and developers. Watch the launch trailer for Go Dance below.
