Just Dance 2019 is a dance rhythm game developed by Ubisoft. It was unveiled on June 11, 2018, during its E3 press conference,[1] and was released on October 23, 2018 on Nintendo Switch, Wii, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in North America.[2][3] It was also released on October 26, 2018 in Europe and Australia.[4]

A demo for the game was released on November 12, 2018 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch.[5]

Gameplay[edit]

As with the previous installments of the franchise, players must mimic the on-screen dancer's choreography to a chosen song using either motion controllers or the game's associated smartphone app (which, however, is incompatible with versions of the game on Nintendo consoles, in favour of exclusively supporting Joy-Con or Wii Remote). The game's user interface received a significant redesign, with a focus on recommendations and curated playlists, and removing other modes to focus on core gameplay.[6]

Reception[edit]

Nintendo Life gave Just Dance 2019 a 7 out of 10, noting that its stripped-down experience was "a strange shift to behold, suggesting that the game is trying to adapt to a new Spotify-using, social media-loving, older teen audience, or maybe growing up alongside those who have supported it from the beginning", and also acknowledged Ubisoft's continued emphasis on pushing its subscription-based offerings for the franchise, as well as performance issues and the removal of Just Dance Controller app support on the Nintendo Switch version.[6]
