Ubisoft launches Just Dance Now worldwide
Today, Ubisoft® announced that Just Dance® Now, the all-new Just Dance mobile experience, is now available for both Android and iOS systems. Just Dance Now allows players to play Just Dance tracks anywhere, anytime with anyone around them using their smartphones and an Internet-connected screen. [Just Dance® 2015, the latest installment of the console game, will be available on all motion-control gaming platforms on October 23 in EMEA. This weekend Just Dancers from Sydney will be able to play the game with others at the EB Expo at Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, October 3 to 5.
“Ubisoft is dedicated to innovation and we’re dedicated to making Just Dance accessible to our millions of fans around the world, even in regions where consoles aren’t as prevalent” said Geoffroy Sardin, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Ubisoft EMEA. “This separate mobile version of the game not only allows our existing fans to experience the Just Dance they know and love in a different way, it also introduces brand new players to the game.”
