Yes, you read that right. This October, your copy of Dance Central 3 will in fact come with a built-in story mode. Ridiculous? Yes, but we wouldn’t want Harmonix to do it any other way.
The developer diary explains that you’ll join the DCI (Dance Central Intelligence) to “uncover a plot to destroy Dance Central and journey through time to learn iconic dance moves from the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s and beyond.” Don’t worry, you’ll be able to play the mode with a friend as well.
As you progress through different eras, you’ll learn various dances, meet new personalities/characters, and ensure the safety of the world. It’s definitely different, but should work well with the Dance Central universe.
