Preview: Just Dance 4

As an avid fan of dancing games, I might as well write about it!

Just Dance 4

Just Dance is a series of dancing video games developed initially for the Nintendo Wii. By the third game, it has expanded to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (via Move). The game is known for it's varied and themed choreography and colorful presentations, making it fun and encouraging to play with friends. The series also has spin-offs (mostly for the Wii) using the Just Dance engine.

For now, I'm going to cover Just Dance 4!

New modes have been announced such as "Battle Mode," where two players pit against each other in depleting each other's energy gauges in 6 rounds. Think of it as a fighting game, only you dance!

Dance Battle! Fight!

An exclusive Wii U feature is the "Puppet Master," which allows the use of the Wii U GamePad. The GamePad will serve as a way to select the next dance steps while the the dance goes on. This is perfect for those who want some variety in their dance! I wonder if the Xbox 360 will still keep the "Just Create" mode...

Pupper Master Mode

As for the existing modes, they'll make expansions to the "Just Sweat" mode and provide unlockable routines for the songs. At least you won't be bored with the same old dance steps for a change!

I'll do my best to keep an eye out on updates! Oh yeah, release date is on Ocotober 2012 while the Wii U version is a launch title!
