Kids finally got their feet on that new version of "Dance Dance Revolution" for educators and fitness advocates we told you about earlier this month when it premiered at this year's CAHPERD (California Association for Health, Physical Education, Recreation & Dance) State Conference. You can check out their massively multiplayer moves in footage of the game's debut that's finally surfaced online.
This latest iteration supports up to 48 different players simultaneously. Many wondered if the result would be a nightmare of tangled wires, but as it turns out, the dance mats are all wireless. Joystiq, first to highlight the initial announcement, is also the first in finding the following clip:
For those hoping to behold a full on demonstration, sorry to disappoint. Only about 14 participants are seen --that low number might be due to the show floor's space constraints. Further, none them are fitness guru (and CAHPERD's special guest), Richard Simmons. Many had assumed Simmons would insert himself into the proceedings somehow. Oh well.
