Some PlayStation Move dancing games are OK. Some, like Let's Dance with Mel B, are not OK. Here's hoping that PQube's new announcement Dance! It's Your Stage is better than that, at least.

The publisher claims its new dancing game is the "most realistic and detailed Playstation 3 Move Dance game ever released", with choreography by Detlef D! Soost and 20 exclusive tracks. Most interestingly though is the game's graphical presentation — according to the press release, the game uses a "stylish high end graphics engine" similar to that used in Ubisoft platformer Prince of Persia. We know, we're surprised too.

Dance! It's Your Stage reaches Europe on 30th September, and you can find out more at the official Dance! It's Your Stage website. We'll review the game shortly after release, of course.
