Dancing is Overrated: Ubisoft Reveals Just Sing

Dancing is Overrated: Ubisoft Reveals Just Sing

Ubisoft makes a new spin-off of its family-friendly best-seller for a world without motion control.

Ever since the first Just Dance game released in 2009, Ubisoft has been riding the series all the way to the gravy train. Unfortunately, the motion controlled trend that lead to Just Dance's success is tapering off: Microsoft has slowly phased out the Kinect, the PlayStation Move is relegated to a PlayStation VR controller, and we have no clue if Nintendo's NX will have motion controls at all. Just Dance 2017 is coming out this year, but what happens when motion control is gone? Enter Ubisoft's solution: a new title called Just Sing.

Dancing falls by the wayside, with Just Sing essentially being a karaoke game. Players use the Just Sing Companion App on Android or iOS to connect to their console. Then you hold your phone out like you're taking a selfie and the game records the incoming video and audio. Recorded clips can be edited with a number of additional themes or filters and shared online.

The game's tracklist has more than 40 songs from artists like Queen, Justin Bieber, Meghan Trainor, Sia, and One Direction. (If you do not like many of these artists, you are not the target demographic for this game.) Here are some of the currently-revealed tracks for Just Sing. The latter songs on the list are probably re-recording with soundalikes, hence the original artist not being listed.

  • All About That Bass - Meghan Trainor
  • Drag Me Down - One Direction
  • What Do You Mean? - Justin Bieber
  • I Want To Break Free - Queen
  • Chandelier - Sia
  • Love Me Like You Do – Ellie Goulding
  • One More Night – Maroon 5
  • Radioactive – Imagine Dragons
  • Can't Feel My Face
  • I Love Rock 'N' Roll
  • All Of Me
  • Baby One More Time
  • I Will Survive
  • Colors of the Wind
  • I Want You Back
  • Kryptonite
  • Rude
  • Stand By Me
  • Take On Me
  • The Fox

Just Sing will be launching for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2016.

Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
