Just Dance 2015 was revealed today during Ubisoft's press conference at E3 and is due for release this October on Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii and Wii U.

Developed by four Ubisoft studios (Paris, Reflections, Bucharest and Pune), Just Dance 2015 boasts several interactive features like the all-new Community Remix. It gives players the ability to record themselves while dancing to songs and then share the recorded videos with friends.

Many popular features among Just Dance fans have also undergone an overhaul for the new game, including the World Dance Floor multiplayer mode, sing-along Karaoke and the video snippet creator, Autodance.

The game will include a variety of songs from several music genres such as pop, rock and hip-hop, with a track list that's sure to have something for every fan of the Just Dance series of games. Here are just some of the 40 songs/artists featured:

  • Happy by Pharrell Williams
  • Problem by Ariana Grande Ft. Iggy Azalea
  • Walk This Way by Run DMC & Aerosmith
  • Summer by Calvin Harris
  • Holding Out For a Hero by Bonnie Tyler
  • Only You (and You Alone) by The Platters
  • The Fox by Ylvis
  • I Love It by Icona Pop ft. Charli XCX
  • Burn by Ellie Goulding
  • Love Me Again by John Newman
  • Tetris by Dancing Bros.

Just Dance 2015 also brings people together like never before with Just Dance Now, a new free app for smartphones and tablets that will allow anyone from anywhere to take part in the fun. The mobile device will act as the controller and there is no limit to how many players can join in. It features all the most popular Just Dance hits and allows players to monitor stats directly from the app, engage in challenges with their friends on Facebook, and share recorded dance videos, just like Just Dance 2015.

"We're taking the franchise to the next level this year by developing the most community-focused console game yet with Just Dance 2015, and by bringing the Just Dance experience to smartphones with Just Dance Now," stated executive producer Jason Altman. "Expanding into mobile allows us to reach any Just Dance fan in any setting, with the potential to reach millions of additional players."

Just Dance Now is developed at Ubisoft Massive along with Ubisoft Paris. Powering the app is Ubisoft's Ubi Bluestar technology, where unlimited amounts of players can play together in real time across WiFi, 2G, 3G, or 4G networks. To use the app players need to download it onto their device and log on to JustDanceNow.com where their phone will sync up automatically.
