Chart-topping hits such as Justin Bieber and Willow Smith will try to get kids moving later this year, as Majesco Entertainment announce plans to launch Zumba Kids on Wii.

Custom-designed routines and activities will seek to help build self-confidence, as children across the globe discover new rhythms across 20 different dance styles – keeping them healthy, fit, and firmly off the couch.

“Zumba Kids makes exercising fun and is a step in the right direction toward combating and preventing childhood obesity,” comments Zumba Fitness CEO and co-founder Alberto Perlman.

“With millions of children facing weight issues around the world, we are introducing a high-energy video game to the market that we hope will help decrease the global obesity epidemic and provide kids with a new opportunity to move and get fit. It’s the perfect opportunity to replace snacking on chips and soda with something healthy and fun.”
