Dance Central Spotlight is coming exclusively for the Xbox One on September 2, and while the $9.99 digital download will come with 10 songs, Harmonix has been promising many more tracks to shake your groove thing to. They’ve recently confirmed a bunch of the DLC tracks that will be available for $1.99 each when the game launches, and it continues to be a great mix of current hits and classic jams so everyone can find something they’ll enjoy!

Remember, if you own Dance Central 1, 2 and/or 3, you’ll be able to import those songs as well, though they haven’t confirmed a specific date when that will be possible. So until then, you can enjoy the 10 tracks included with Dance Central Spotlight as well as the songs I’ll list after the jump!

Sunset Overdrive keeps on making me happy. This colorful, irreverent approach to shooters was one of very few things keeping me from falling asleep during this year’s E3 press conferences. Following E3, and the massive backlash Ubisoft saw for not including a playable female assassin in Assassin’s Creed Unity, developer Insomniac Games threw a bit of shade Ubisoft’s way by showcasing the ability to make one in this game. Today in the newest episode of Sunset TV, where Brandon Winfrey shares updates on the highly anticipated title, it was announced that characters can switch between genders at any time during the game.

While answering a question about the ability to modify a character’s appearance after their initial creation it was said that,

“You can change any part of your appearance at any time. So that means body type, skin tone, anything. So if you wanna be a girl one day, do it, and you can switch back to a guy the next.”
