Update: The game has been confirmed, and is set for launch later in 2014.

The US ratings body has given the music game a Teen rating due to the inclusion of "mild lyrics".


Like previous series entries, Dance Central Spotlight is a rhythm action game which challenges players to perform dance steps by following the movements of on-screen characters, which are tracked by Kinect.

The series was created by Harmonix, which developed 2010's Dance Central, 2011's Dance Central 2, and 2012's Dance Central 3, all for Xbox 360.

Microsoft recently confirmed plans to begin selling Xbox One without Kinect for the first time beginning this month.

A number of Harmonix staff members working on Kinect-only title Fantasia: Music Evolved took to Twitter to express their disappointment at Microsoft's decision.

Titled 'Game On', Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing will begin today at 9:30am PT / 12:30am ET / 5:30pm BST.
