Ubisoft® Unveils Just Dance® 2015 for Consoles and Just Dance® Now– a New Mobile Experience

Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® announced the development of both Just Dance® 2015 and Just Dance® Now. Just Dance 2015 is the latest installment of the world’s #1 dance game franchise and will be available on all motion-control gaming platforms on October 23 in EMEA (October 24th in the UK) and in October in the US. Just Dance Now is the all-new mobile experience that allows players to play Just Dance tracks with their smartphones and any Internet-connected screen.

“We’re taking the franchise to the next level this year by developing the most community-focused console game yet with Just Dance 2015, and by bringing the Just Dance experience to smartphones with Just Dance Now,” said Jason Altman, Executive Producer. “Expanding into mobile allows us to reach any Just Dance fan in any setting, with the potential to reach millions of additional players.”

With 50 million games sold in the franchise since its debut in 2009, Just Dance has become a pop-cultural phenomenon played by fans all over the world. Last year, Just Dance 2014 was the ninth largest-selling video game on all platforms worldwide as well as the #4 selling video game during the holidays worldwide.

Just Dance 2015

Just Dance 2015 is developed by Ubisoft Paris, Ubisoft Reflections, Ubisoft Bucharest and Ubisoft Pune, and has the most interactive features and hottest track list yet. Here’s what’s new this year:

There are more than 100 million Just Dance players around the world and in Just Dance 2015, the community is as important as ever with the introduction of the all-new Community Remix feature. The feature allows players to record themselves dancing to songs from artists like Ellie Goulding, Pharrell Williams and Calvin Harris and share in the game. The community then votes on their favorites, which the development team will use to create remixed gameplay and ultimately bring fan footage into the game for millions of fans to dance against. Ubisoft is bringing the players into the actual game this year.

Fan-favorite features including the massive multiplayer mode World Dance Floor, video snippet creator Autodance and the sing along Karaoke feature are all back and revamped for the new game.

With more than 40 tracks, there’s quite literally something for everyone. Get “Happy” with Pharrell Williams, “Walk This Way” with Run DMC & Aerosmith or try “Holding Out for a Hero” with Bonnie Tyler’s 1980s power anthem. Whether it’s pop, hip-hop or rock you’re looking for, check out a selection of Just Dance 2015 tracks:

  • “Happy” by Pharrell Williams
  • “Problem” by Ariana Grande Ft. Iggy Azalea
  • “She Looks So Perfect’’ by 5 Seconds of Summer
  • “Walk this Way” by Run DMC & Aerosmith
  • “Summer” by Calvin Harris
  • “Holding Out for a Hero” by Bonnie Tyler

Just Dance Now

Just Dance Now creates the most accessible version of Just Dance yet by enabling players to dance anywhere, anytime with anyone. The game is streamed to any Internet-connected screen, while the free app transforms players’ smartphone into a motion controller. Using a Ubisoft’s proprietary technology called Ubi Bluestar, an unlimited number of people can play together in real time, even while on different data connections – 2G, 3G, 4G, or WiFi.

Players will follow three simple steps:

1. Download the Just Dance Now app on their iPhone®, iPod touch® or Android™ device.

2. Visit JustDanceNow.com on any Internet-connected screen.

3. Their phone will automatically sync and they’ll be ready to dance!

The track list includes all the greatest hits from the Just Dance catalogue. The mobile experience also allows players to check their stats directly from the app, challenge their Facebook friends, and record video of their dance session to share.
