Just Dance 2023 will feature online multiplayer with crossplay

It’s a major first for the long-running dance series, as Just Dance 2023 owners can all get together, no matter where they are.

Saturday’s Ubisoft Forward presentation featured some news about the latest Just Dance. It’s easy for many to write off Just Dance 2023 as “the last one” or just another annual update to the long-running franchise. However, it looks like Ubisoft is going to make a genuine effort to move the series forward with a major new feature: online multiplayer.

For those new to the series, it may be hard to fathom that Just Dance hasn’t had an online multiplayer mode up to this point, but not only is Ubisoft diving headfirst into this new feature, it looks like the publisher will get it right. . . Online parties will support up to six players, where friends can interact with each other in lobbies similar to private karaoke sessions. Friends can choose songs and immerse themselves in synchronized dance sessions. The best part is that cross play is supported on all platforms.

On top of that, Just Dance 2023 is undergoing a visual overhaul, changing the series’ classic aesthetic with more 3D landscapes and an interface that evokes the look and feel of media services like Netflix or Disney+. What’s especially interesting is that Ubisoft is promising new game modes, songs, and seasons that are expected to last “for years to come,” making one wonder if this game will still be supported even after the eventual long-awaited release. of an alleged Just Dance 2024. Those answers remain to be seen.

Those looking to dance but don’t have motion-compatible controllers available will be able to jump with their smartphone. The Just Dance Controller app will turn any smartphone into a makeshift controller, which can also keep score. The app will be available closer to the game’s launch and will be free on both iOS and Android.
