Zumba dance/fitness is hot, hot hot. Just check it out:
Now, the real question is - will Majesco develop the game for PSP?
Just looking at the past history of games they have developed, the chances are not good. Their last PSP game was Blokus Portable: Steambot Championship and that was 18 months ago. All up they have only ever developed four PSP games. On the other hand they have developed 25 Wii games and dozens of DS games.
And the Wii platform is obviously compatible with a game so suited to interactive play.
But, but, but….
Firstly, Sony is obviously trying to bring girls on board as PSP fans. Their efforts so far have been pretty weak, so the Majesco/Zumba deal could be a marriage made in heaven for the PSP. What’s more, they can offer cross-over play options with the PS3 to really maximize the interactive possibilities of such a game! They have done this with other games, and a dance game would be a great opportunity to do that again. (Against that, Majesco have not so far developed a game for the PS3).
The first game will not be released for another 12 months. We say, let Majesco know you want the game on PSP!!
