A survey has suggested that Harmonix is testing the waters to find out what people would want in Dance Central 2, a game the firm said was in “pre-production” back in November.

According to the survey, Dance Central 2 would possibly include online store, more customization options for characters, and extra practice options – a lot like Rock Band.

There’s even a possible karaoke mode listed, which would allow folks to sing and dance at the same time, as well as online play over Xbox Live.

Here’s the list of items asked about in the survey, courtesy of Kotaku.
