Zumba Fitness World Party delayed to November

Zumba Fitness World Party delayed a month, available in November
Hey, y'all made this a multi-million unit selling franchise, so we don't wanna hear no guff that we're writing about a Zumba game. In short, Zumba World Party, originally scheduled for this month, will now launch in November. In North America, the game is scheduled for Xbox 360, Wii and Wii U for November 5. The Xbox One version will launch with the console on November 22. For Europe, November 22 is when it'll launch for Xbox 360, Wii and Wii U. An Xbox One version is still on the dance card, but no release date has been confirmed.

Publisher Majesco could really, really use a holiday hit here. The company's stock continues to trade under $1 and it halted quantitative guidance in March. The company currently has a deadline of February 2014 to keep its stock above $1 for ten days or face Nasdaq delisting. It could always do a reverse stock split like THQ to retain compliance. Boy, that's an awkward example.

Update: Incorporated North America details.
