The XBOX 360 version already shipped over 500,000 times in mid-January, but continues its success in February and beyond according to Bog Burridge.
In addition to TheZeeman‘s view of the Zumba Fitness aerobic fitness dancing game, dirtyvu recently submitted his view* on Zumba Fitness on our community forums! Both describe the individual components of Zumba Fitness game from their point of view, and took the time to describe and compare some of the features to the popular Dance Central.

Zumba Fitness The Video Game contains an exercise program that pairs Latin rhythms with international dance steps. This game is all about learning and perfecting nine different dance styles: Reggaeton, Merengue, Salsa, Cumbia, Hip-Hop, Mambo, Rumba, Flamenco and Calypso. According to some of the Kinect game’s customers, the experience was far from perfect. That is why Majesco took matters into their own hands and just released an update for their fitness / dancing title.

Earlier this week Kinect game maker Majesco announced their great achievement of shipping 500,000 Zumba Fitness video game units for all platforms combined! Great results for both Majesco and motion controls. Hopefully, this will inspire other developers and publishers to try and make a belly-dance Kinect Game as some have requested on the forums.
Back to Zumba Fitness: “We are excited by the sales performance of the Zumba Fitness video game, and are also encouraged by the continued post-holiday momentum for the title,” said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco.
