iOS and Android gamers have spent enough time sitting against the wall, wondering if the cool kids are ever going to ask them to dance. Along with Just Dance 2015 for consoles and whatnot, Ubisoft announced at their E3 2014 press conference today that they’ll also be releasing Just Dance Now for iPhone, iPad and Android.
I’ll let you learn about Just Dance 2015 on your own. You surely know what it is by now, and the biggest news this year would have to be the inclusion of Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero.”
Since this is AppleTell, we’ll focus on Just Dance Now. From the press release:
Just Dance Now creates the most accessible version of Just Dance yet by enabling players to dance anywhere, anytime with anyone. The game is streamed to any Internet-connected screen, while the free app transforms players’ smartphone into a motion controller. Using a Ubisoft’s proprietary technology called Ubi Bluestar, an unlimited number of people can play together in real time, even while on different data connections – 2G, 3G, 4G, or WiFi.
Players will follow three simple steps:
- Download the Just Dance Now app on their iPhone®, iPod touch® or Android™ device.
- Visit JustDanceNow.com on any Internet-connected screen.
- Their phone will automatically sync and they’ll be ready to dance!
Developed at Ubisoft Massive studio, in association with Ubisoft Paris, Just Dance Now allows fans to play Just Dance anywhere, anytime and without a video game console. The track list includes all the greatest hits from the Just Dance catalogue. The mobile experience also allows players to check their stats directly from the app, challenge their Facebook friends, and record video of their dance session to share.
Those greatest hits better include “Proud Mary,” because that’s the one I like to watch my wife dance to.
