Harmonix has announced a new game in their dancing motion game series, Dance Central. While the series has traditionally been tied to Microsoft’s now-defunct Kinect camera, the newest iteration titled simply “Dance Central” is bringing the game to virtual reality in both Oculus Rift and Oculus Quest.

The new virtual reality game has you matching the movements of a single person standing in front of you whom you’re essentially dancing with. The website brags that there are 32 custom routines to come along with the game designed specifically for Dance Central that you can then bring to the club after you master them.
I imagine you’re going to need a pretty open space to wear a virtual reality helmet and perform intricate dance moves, so if you’ve got that, then great! If not, uh, please be careful when playing this. While the Oculus Quest does not have cords, it doesn’t get rid of all the furniture around you. Or walls. Or people.
Dance Central is expected to launch in 2019.
