‘Just Dance 2019’ Coming This October

A dancing panda and his brightly colored posse opened the Ubisoft E3 2018 press conference on Monday to officially unveil “Just Dance 2019.”

The next entry in Ubisoft’s long-running rhythm game franchise comes out this October and features 40 brand new songs, including “Finesse (Remix)” by Bruno Mars Ft. Cardi B, “Bum Bum Tam Tam” by MC Fioti, and other dance hits from around the world. It has new dance stages designed by creative experts like street artist Chanoir and stop-motion studio Clay Animation. Plus, a dynamic new homepage will act as a central hub filled with seasonal and special event playlists, news, and community highlights.

The central hub isn’t the only thing that’s personalized. The game can learn your dancing habits and offer custom recommendations based on your previous song selections, Ubisoft said. You can also create your own custom playlists.

Kids mode returns in “Just Dance 2019,” along with the Just Dance Unlimited subscription service, which offers access to more than 400 songs. More tracks will be added throughout the year.

“Just Dance 2019” will be available on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Xbox 360, Wii U, and Wii. You won’t need a Kinect or PS Move controller, Ubisoft said. Any smartphone can be used to play via the Just Dance Controller app.
