Microsoft have announced nine additional songs for its forthcoming Dance Central 3, the series which, let’s face it, remains the best reason for purchasing an Xbox 360 Kinect.

The songs, complete with ‘authentic’ dance routines, include:

Afrojack ft. Eva Simons – Take Over Control
Alexandra Stan – Mr. Saxobeat
Ciara ft. Missy Elliott – 1, 2 Step
Cupid – Cupid Shuffle
Daft Punk – Around The World
Dev ft. The Cataracts – Bass Down Low
Enur ft. Natasja – Calabria 2008
Martin Solveig ft. Dragonette – Hello
The Trammps – “Disco Inferno”

Details of a new (and appropriately hammy) story mode have been unveiled too, and will see players join the ranks of ‘Dance Central Intelligence’ as they bid to uncover a plot to destroy the world while journeying through the ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s, ‘00s to save it. Interestingly the mode can be played alone or with a friend and serves to unlock power moves as you travel across eras.

Dance Central 3 is scheduled to release on 19 October 2012 for Xbox 360 Kinect.
