Ubisoft Announces Its First Game for Nintendo's NX

Ubisoft's next Just Dance is also coming to NX, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.


Nintendo isn't talking about NX at E3, but another developer is.

As part of Ubisoft's E3 2016 briefing today, the company announced a new version of Just Dance--Just Dance 2017--is headed to the NX (among other systems). That's the codename for Nintendo's next console.

No Caption Provided

At the event, Ubisoft declined to share further details about the Just Dance game or the NX. This is to be expected, as Nintendo itself has said it won't talk about NX at E3. The system is due to launch in March 2017, though the platform has yet to be formally announced.

Just Dance is one of a few games announced for, or linked to, the NX. Nintendo's own The Legend of Zelda is coming to the system, while versions of Dragon Quest X and Dragon Quest XI, are "under consideration."

Just Dance 2017 is also coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC (digitally for the first time in franchise history).

Writing on Ubisoft's blog, the developer shared more details on the game, including its initial soundtrack. This includes:

  • "Sorry" – Justin Bieber
  • "DADDY" – Psy Ft. CL of 2NE1
  • "Cheap Thrills" – Sia Ft. Sean Paul
  • "Lean On" – Major Lazer Ft. MØ & DJ Snake
  • "Worth It" – Fifth Harmony Ft. Kid Ink
  • "Don’t Stop Me Now" – Queen
  • "PoPiPo" – Hatsune Miku
  • "Radical"– Dyro & Dannic
  • "El Tiki" – Maluma
  • "September" – Equinox Stars
  • "What Is Love" – Ultraclub 90

In all, Just Dance 2017 will feature 40 tracks. Additionally, there is a new mode called Just Dance Machine ("a frantic new mode that challenges you to perform different kinds of dances"). Some of these include flamenco, ballet, and the cancan. The Just Dance Unlimited mode also returns for this year's game, which launches in October.
