Dance Central: Spotlight Achievements


Hot off the heels of yesterday’s Fantasia achievements coming out, has put out the Dance Central: Spotlight achievements. While it was expected that Fantasia would have 1000 points, since it’s a full retail title, it’s a bit more surprising to see that Dance Central: Spotlight also has 1000 seeing as it’s an XBLA game (EDIT: Apparently there’s no separation anymore. Thanks @mcmax3000). The 1000 gamerpoints are spread across 35 achievements.

Unlike previous Dance Central games, only one achievement is tied to a specific song, and it requires getting 3 stars on the “Strength” routine for Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty. Also, based on one of the achievements, we can see that there will be 80 routines in the game, meaning that each song has 8! Based on the other achievements, it seems like those routines will be “Classic”, “Goofy”, “Polished”, “Serious”, “Strength”, “Cardio”, “Deluxe”, and “Pro”. One has to wonder, however, if because of the DLC focused nature of the game, we might see some more achievements coming with the DLC. Only time will tell. For now, check out what goals you can strive for in Dance Central: Spotlight!

The full list is after the jump.
