Enjoy Dance Central but can't play it on your Xbox One?  Never fear as Harmonix has the answer to your dancing problems...unless you're like me and can't dance a lick anyway, to which there probably is no answer.  Anyway, Harmonix has announced that Dance Central Spotlight will be released this fall exclusively as a digital download for the Xbox One.  Dance Central Spotlight will bring players authentic dance routines, accurate body tracking using the Kinect, and more chart-topping music.

The core game will be available for two players and comes with ten hit songs to choose from, plus you can customize things with more than fifty chart-topping hits with new songs coming every week.  There will also be eight different dance routines per song, so if you got tired of the same routine in the Xbox 360 versions, this should add some variety to the gameplay.
