In this funk filled Japanese meets Latino (Japino) fusion, you are a budding Sumo Zumba Warrior vying to reach the top of the tournament ladder to earn the coveted title of YokoZumba! You must wrestle foes utilising your Sumo sized girth, whilst impressing the crowd, and eluding your enemy with your Zumba groove.
The setting is inside a traditional Sumo dohyō ring, with you and your opponent squaring off on either side. Once the referee starts the bout, and the music starts, the match begins. The rules are simple:
If a player leaves the ring by force or mis-step, he loses.
If a player stops Zumbaing for 5 seconds or more, he loses the match.
In after 3 minutes neither player has left the ring, or stopped Zumbaing, then the judges will award a victor based on the level of groove shown throughout the match.
Powerups can be earned throughout the match by performing impressive Zumba moves such as cartwheels and backflips, which will boost your Zumba groove rating, but leave you defensively vulnerable, so choose your timing wisely. As you progress throughout the tournament, you will learn new moves, and powerup abilities to defeat your foes.
