You’ll soon be able to shake your booty (or your controller or even your phone) in Just Dance 2016. The latest version of the immensely popular dancing game will have some new features.
First, Ubisoft has announced that there will be a Just Dance 2016 Gold Edition that will be released alongside the standard edition. The Gold Edition is a special version of Just Dance 2016 that will include all the content from the standard Just Dance 2016, as well as a three-month subscription to Just Dance Unlimited.
Just Dance Unlimited is fancy new way to access songs from previous Just Dance games on modern consoles. It features motion controls for Wii U, Xbox One and PS4. Just Dance Unlimited is a subscription service that will launch with Just Dance 2016 and will offer three tiers of pricing. One month will be $6.99. Three months will be $14.99. A full year will cost $39.99. Just Dance Unlimited is slated to launch with more than 150 songs and even more will be added in the future.
Besides Just Dance Unlimited, another new feature that’s making its way into Just Dance 2016 is the Just Dance Contoller App. This allows anyone who downloads the free app on their smartphone to be able to control the game with said phone. The app will be available on iOS and Android devices. But you’ll need to have a current generation console to support the feature.
But if you want in on the Just Dance action and haven’t sprung for a Wii U, Xbox One, or PS4, there’s nothing to worry about. Just Dance 2016 will be available for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Some of the artists to be featured in the new game include Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, and Meghan Trainor. Or, check out Just Dance Now, the free (with optional purchases), browser-based installment that came out last year. Just Dance Now also uses smartphones as controllers.
The original Just Dance was released as a Wii exclusive in 2009. It quickly became one of the most popular Wii games and expanded to other consoles. Just Dance 2016 will be the seventh game in the series.
