Just Dance 2016 is a dance video game developed and published by Ubisoft. Unveiled on June 15, 2015, during its E3 press conference, it was released in October 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, and Wii U.
As with previous installments, players select a song, and then follow the motions of on-screen dancer(s) and their choreographed routine. Players are judged on a ranking scale for the accuracy of each of their moves in comparison to that of the on-screen dancer. The game supports the use of each console’s motion controller accessories (Kinect on Xbox 360 and One, PlayStation Camera on PS4, PlayStation Move on PS3 and PS4, andWii Remotes on Wii and Wii U); alternatively, players can utilize a smartphone app for motion tracking.
Standard gameplay has been re-organized under the banner of “Dance Party” mode—encompassing competitive and co-operative multiplayer modes, and the ability to send recordings of performances alongside challenges to other players. In the “Dance Quests” mode, players compete against a computer opponent across three randomly selected songs. Versions for eighth-generation consoles also include “Showtime”, which allows players to record short lip sync music videos to songs with themed visual effects.
ersions of the game on eighth-generation consoles support Just Dance Unlimited, which offers subscription-based access to a streaming library of songs from previous Just Dance games, and new songs that are exclusive to the service. Ubisoft stated that the service would offer at least 150 songs on-launch.A three-month subscription to Just Dance Unlimited is included as part of a higher-priced version of Just Dance 2016 known as the “Gold Edition”
