Ubisoft kicked off their E3 2018 press conference with a big marching band performance led by a dancing panda bear and a troop of equally eclectic companions. The whole production was ostensibly to promote Just Dance 2019, but we learned next to nothing about the game from the announcement itself. However, we were able to learn a few tidbits from some sources aside from the conference.
We know Just Dance 2019 will be released sometime this October for pretty much ever console a person might conceivably have in their home. It will be hitting the big three, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation 4, but it will also be released on Xbox 360, Wii U, and even the Wii. That's right - the Wii, which was discontinued in 2011, will have its own brand new release of Just Dance 2019. That's pretty incredible.
The song list will span 40 tracks, but can be expanded to 400 songs with a subscription to Just Dance Unlimited. 2019 will also include the ability to use a smart phone in place of a PlayStation Move or a Kinect accessory. Whatever method players use to interact with the game world and bust their moves, up to six players can dance together at one time.
