We’re not big Dance Central fans around these parts but it’s kind of neat to see how the new game, launching tomorrow, will take advantage of Microsoft’s SmartGlass coming to the Xbox 360.
The companion app, which will launch on iOS, Windows Phone and Android (in addition to tablets) will augment the dance experience by letting users control the music playlist and difficulty settings when in “Party Time” mode. When dancing the night away and being forever alone, you can use the app to keep track of calories burned and a challenge tracker to help keep track of your progress during sessions.
Forever Alone mode
Although the main game for Dance Central 3 comes out tomorrow, the companion SmartGlass app won’t be out until the end of the month, presumably when Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 officially launches. Although this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to SmartGlass apps for the Xbox 360, we’re excited to see what developers come up with next.
