NEW JUST DANCE 2016 FEATURE AND TRACKS UNVEILED AT GAMESCOM
Music From Iggy Azalea Ft. Charli XCX, Ellie Goulding and More Announced Alongside New Showtime Mode
London, UK – August 5, 2015 – Today, at Gamescom, Ubisoft® announced nine new tracks for Just Dance 2016 and revealed a new lip-syncing-focused mode called “Showtime,” which will be available for new-gen consoles. Just Dance 2016 will be released on October 23 in the UK on all motion-control gaming platforms.
The new Showtime mode will allow players to unleash their inner star by creating unique music videos of themselves performing. Players lip-sync and perform along to hit songs in the game and the video footage is then turned into a fun shareable music video*. The music videos pull in both creative visual elements and pop cultural references— each song will have a distinctive and visually original atmosphere. Showtime will be available on Nintendo’s Wii U™ system, Xbox One®, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and PlayStation® 4 computer entertainment system. A Kinect for Xbox One, PlayStation Camera or WiiU Gamepad is required to play this mode.
Just Dance 2016 will feature 40+ tracks from artists like Mark Ronson Ft. Bruno Mars, Jason Derulo, Meghan Trainor, Calvin Harris Ft. John Newman and Lady Gaga. The new tracks revealed at Gamescom include:
