Rated T for Teen and available at the MSRP of $39.99 for both the Kinect™ for Xbox 360® and the Wii™ system from Nintendo, The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the first authentic hip-hop dance video game.

Ubisoft teamed up with several world-renowned hip-hop choreographers, including Laurieann Gibson and Dave Scott. Gibson, a VMA-winning choreographer who also serves as creative director for Nicki Minaj, and Scott, choreographer for the immensely popular TV show So You Think You Can Dance, both contributed original moves for the game, which allows players to perform over 750 dance moves with the ultimate hip-hop track list which features over thirty chart-topping tracks, including many of yesterday and today’s hottest songs from artists like Drake, Lil’ Wayne, Outkast, Run-DMC, Nicki Minaj, and Snoop Dogg.
The Hip Hop Dance Experience includes an array of new features and game modes that will keep players dancing for hours. Whether you’re a rookie or a seasoned pro, players will progress through a variety of dance moves that vary in level of difficulty. Multiplayer gameplay modes allow multiple players of different skill sets to play together, battling it out with up to four of their friends. Live performance footage and authentic music videos add another dimension to gameplay as they accompany the choreography, transforming your living room into a real-time music video. Players are also able to customize their in-game avatars with hundreds of looks to creatively express their own individuality.
