With three iterations of the motion-control based dancing/workout/gaming hybrid that is the Just Dance franchise already being available for purchase for PS3 (with the use of PS Move), Xbox 360 (with the use of Xbox Kinect) and Nintendo Wii, it appears that dancing isn't dead and that people are still very much as keen as ever to work up a rhythm based sweat in the name of fun, with the help of a popular video game and it's for that reason that Just Dance 4 has just been announced at the gaming industry's constant beacon of reveals and wonder - E3.
Ubisoft are once again employing a range of annoyingly catchy and infectious tracks to shake our game playing rumps to in Just Dance 4, with the likes of ''What Makes You Beautiful' by (tween) beloved British boyband, One Direction, along with the song that will no doubt follow you around for the rest of the decade - Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepsen.
With a a new game comes new modes, apparent as Just Dance 4 is also set to include a Battle Mode and a four player dance-off, both allowing mediocre dance enthusiasts to make a fool of themselves with friends ! These new modes extend to the new 'Puppet Master' feature, which, according to the footage show off in the Just Dance 4 E3 trailer, allows you to aid your friends by making them look even more ridiculous by singling them out for a one person danceathon - this perhaps ties into the biggest reveal from the Ubisoft's Just Dance 4 announcement...
...Just Dance 4 will be released for Wii U! Between the Wii U exclusive standalone mode, allowing you to 'Just Dance' on the go and the aforementioned Puppet Master mode, it seems that Ubi are pulling out all the stops to make Just Dance 4 on Wii U include some original concepts rather than the game just being a small screen version of Just Dance 4 on the bigger consoles.
You can watch the Just Dance 4 E3 trailer below.
The Just Dance 4 release date is October 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii. (The Just Dance 4 Wii U release date is Holiday Season 2012).
