Zumba Fitness: World Party coming to Wii U

Burn up to 1,000 calories a day by working out to Lady Gaga

Zumba Fitness: World Party will be released for Wii U and Wii this November. The fitness series was a huge hit on the Wii and 505 Games will be hoping to replicate that success on Nintendo's new console as the game goes up against Wii Fit U.

While Wii Fit is all about improving your balance and strengthening core muscles, Zumba Fitness: World Party is aimed at those who want to burn calories.

According to the latest press release, players can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour as they work out to 40 high-energy routines. The routines are accompanied by tunes from the likes of Lady Gaga, Pitbull and Daddy Yankee.

There's also a World Tour mode that's been designed to make players feel like they're on location around the world with Zumba's celebrity instructors.

In addition to Zumba Fitness: World Tour, 505 Games will also be releasing Zumba Kids, a game aimed at 7-12 year olds. Set for release on Wii in November, it features a range of dance styles, creative mini-games, customisation and chart-topping hits from Justin Bieber and Willow Smith.

    No thanks as I not fan of Lady Gaga or the other two.

    I more interested if any artists from the 60s (e.g. The Beatles), 80s (e.g. Rick Astley) or from the parts of the world that don't speak English (e.g. Neko Jump from Thailand, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu from Japan and Nena from Germany) are in.
