1MILLION Dance Studio is a massively-popular dance label with over 20 million people subscribing to their YouTube channel. Their top choreographers, including Lia Kim, the company's chief choreographer, all contributed their time, efforts, and moves towards the in-game dances of the characters in Hunter's Arena Legends. Players will be able to experience these moves just as fluidly as they were captured in real life, within the game, and be able to use them as emotes alongside taunts and victory poses.
