Ubisoft® Unveils Just Dance® 2015 for Consoles and Just Dance® Now- a New Mobile Experience
LOS ANGELES --(Business Wire)--
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 newgame.
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
