Here’s the trailer for Just Dance 4, the latest entry in Ubisoft’s makes-so-much-money-it’s-silly rhythm franchise. It’s coming to all next-gen platforms later this year.
Nintendo may have an all-new console coming out in justa few weeks, but that's not going to stop them from tempting folks to pick up a Wii any way they can. The company just announced two new bundles for their aging hardware, one of which is designed to get rabid toy collectors like Kotaku's own Mike Fahey shell out…
Gangnam Style will be DLC for Just Dance 4... for "all motion sensor platforms in November 2012," according to Ubisoft.
Before I officially hung up my pointe shoes by their pink ribbons, I was a dancer. I practiced ballet, tap, pointe, and jazz. I did all this for 10 years. You could say I like dancing.
I knew that dance games, like Ubisoft's Just Dance series, took an extraordinary amount of motion capture and choreography. But I admit that I never stopped to think about the costumed characters on-screen. Not only does the team have to capture dancers in motion... they need to outfit the dancers, too.
I never realized how dangerous some of these dance moves look to be until Conan took it upon himself to review Just Dance 4 with Olympic gold medalist Alex Morgan.
I'll admit, after watching the E3 2012 press conferences at home on my couch while drinking Heineken and using a spray bottle on my 8-week-old kittens every time they used my scalp as a scratching post, I didn't have high hopes for the show floor. No Fable 4? No God of War 4? No Dreamcast 2? Pffh. Yawn.
Here's Ubisoft's Just Dance 4, shown off at Nintendo's press briefing during E3 today.
