Bust A Groove With Just Dance 2014 This Year On Wii U

Posted by Orla Madden

Just when you thought there was no-one on the dance floor

E3 is well and truly underway and it wouldn't be the same if a Just Dance title wasn't mentioned. Sure enough, Ubisoft has announced Just Dance 2014, the latest instalment in the popular dance game franchise and sequel to last year’s Just Dance 4.

Among the many artists featured in the upcoming title include Nicki Minaj, One Direction, and global sensation artist with style, Psy, with a list of tracks already confirmed for the game:

  • Feel This Moment - Pitbull ft. Christina Aguilera
  • Pound The Alarm - Nicki Minaj
  • Starships - Nicki Minaj
  • Kiss You - One Direction
  • She Wolf (Falling to Pieces) - David Guetta ft. Sia
  • Turn Up The Love - Far East Movement ft. Cover Drive
  • Troublemaker - Olly Murs ft. Flo Rida
  • Gentleman - PSY
  • Candy - Robbie Williams
  • I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

New features to the series include World Dance Floor and On Stage Mode. World Dance Floor introduces the franchise's debut in online multiplayer - you can join a virtual crew with your friends or other Just Dance players and compete based on different themes, check global leader boards and stats about other players around the world. Meanwhile, on Stage Mode gives you the spotlight, allowing up to two back-up dancers.

A Party Master Mode exclusive to the Wii U allows the GamePad user to MC the party with plenty more options; choosing dance moves for the other players, while giving them crazy challenges.

Just Dance 2014 is scheduled to have living rooms "getting jiggy with it" before the year is out. It'll be available on 4th October in Europe and 8th October in North America.

We've included the official trailer for the game which was displayed at E3, just incase you missed it. Let us know what you think to it by leaving a comment.

I don't get how these dumb Just Dance games win the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards every year. I played them a couple times and hated it. All you do is swing the Wii remote to mimic the dance moves. New Super Mario Bros. U should have won last year's KCA. Then again, all the voters are a bunch of kids. smh

That's the whole point - they're the kids choice awards because they are for games that appeal to and are successful with kids. They aren't about the best games ever.

And frankly, anything that gets kids moving a bit more is a good thing in my book. Yes, it's not a game I would play myself, but I am not a kid.

@3DGamerDude Im not a fan of the series either, unfortunately I cant say the same about my older sister. I can already see her robbing my Wii u and demand me to join!
Do you know what's it like dancing with the devil that forgets to ware the remote strap!? :'(

Nothing wrong with this franchise. It's not a core game. My wife plays these games and absolutely loves it. There is plenty of room for other games, these titles aren't keeping watch dogs from being made.

The title through me off, I was thinking this was another filler release for the summer. Not sure why they would switch up the name of a main series game, but I guess as long as the dancing is fun a name doesn't really matter.

I'd need a full track list before getting excited. Just Dance 2 and 4 had a nice line-up, but 3 was a bit "meh."

Given the prevalence of online I'm a bit surprised Ubisoft hasn't just replaced the engines and simply expanded the tracks with each "new" release - that seems like a big missed opportunity. Better still you could offer a subscription-based title like a music streaming service to try to offset ongoing license fees.

For a moment I thought you were talking about Bust-a-Groove, probably the only dancing game I liked :)

How do you play with 6 players? the Wii U/Wii only supports 4 wiimotes at the same time.
