As in previous installments, players must mimic the routine of an on-screen dancer to a chosen song, scoring points based on their accuracy. For input, the game supports either the respective motion controller system for a particular console platform, or a smartphone with the game’s companion mobile app. A new “Just Dance Machine” mode was added on current-generation console and PC versions, in which players must dance through sequences of different styles to help recharge an alien spaceship.
Ubisoft confirmed that the Dance Quests, Sweat (workout and playlist modes), Just Dance TV, and World Dance Floor features would be retained on 2017, as well as the Just Dance Unlimited subscription service for versions of the game on current-generation consoles and PC, with additional content and playlist features. The game’s companion app was also updated to become “a hub for players’ activities”, with photo editing features and Just Dance TV content alongside the app’s main purpose as a motion controller.
Just Dance 2017 is a dance video game developed and published by Ubisoft. It was unveiled on June 13, 2016, during its E3 press conference, and was released on October 25, 2016 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, and Wii U.
