While we knew that Just Dance 2017 was coming to the Switch for quite a while already, we now have confirmation that it’ll be hitting the system day one in the West.
Both Nintendo and Ubisoft have confirmed that Just Dance 2017 will be a Nintendo Switch launch title, bringing dance action and your favourite dance songs to the new system. It’ll come with over forty hot tracks, five game modes, regular content updates (all year long), and access to more than two-hundred (200!) songs through Just Dance Unlimited (a free 3-month subscription included with every purchase).
In addition, the Switch version of the game will include the chart-topping dance track “How Deep Is Your Love” by Calvin Harris & Disciples – available exclusively via that free Just Dance Unlimited subscription service.
You’ll be able to participate using either a Joy-Con or smartphone, with up to six players able to join in the fun simultaneously. As for what you’ll be playing, here is a breakdown of the game’s dance modes (via Nintendo’s website);
- Just Dance: Dance to the hottest hits in the classic Just Dance experience! Compete with your friends in Rival Scoring or team up for the highest score in co-op.
- Just Dance Machine: Each Dance Machine session is composed of five short exclusive and unique dance experiences that span different types of dance, including flamenco, Charleston, ballet, haka, and cancan, never seen before in Just Dance!
- World Dance Floor: The fan-favorite online multiplayer dance floor is back and better than ever! Dance live with players from around the world, enjoy special live events like tournaments, collaborate with other dancers to unlock special prizes, and more!
- Dance Quest: Compete against AI dancers and unlock all the quests to beat the game!
- Sweat + Playlists: Make workouts fun by creating playlists with your favorite tracks, which can be taken on the go thanks to the Nintendo Switch’s portability, or launching the Non-Stop Shuffle mode! Track calories burned, time spent dancing, and number of songs played!
Will you be dancing your way home with this one on launch day?
Just Dance 2017 is headed for the Nintendo Switch on day one in the West, available March 3rd, 2017.
