Just Dance 4 Has Shuffled Onto North American Retail Store Shelves

If you’re itching to dance, Ubisoft has you covered. The French gaming corporation has confirmed today’s Just Dance 4 launch date through press release means.

Those who are unfamiliar with the series should note that the game is completely dance focused, featuring popular hits, classic songs and iconic anthems. Its main mode allows players to groove in conjunction with on-screen avatars, presenting an experience that emphasizes fun in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way. Additionally, the title also offers a secondary gameplay mode, which focuses on burning calories while dancing.
