A new kids mode will debut in Just Dance 2018 and will be headlined by Disney’s Moana, Ubisoft recently confirmed.
The mode, offering easier choreographies for children, will launch with 8 accessible songs.
“The choreographies are much easier than the traditional Just Dance songs and children can really identify with characters and universes such as embodying a fearless pirate on the deck of a ship; a supergirl off to save the world; a funky robot; a magical Halloween experience, and lots more,” Ubisoft detailed in a press release.
The game’s interface will also be simplified for the mode.
“Children aged between 3 and 6 quite often have difficulties reproducing fast and complex movements,” Martine Curtat-Cadet, child choreography expert, explained. “The steps we have developed in these choreographies are associated with intentions that correspond to action verbs like running climbing, flying, catching. Inevitably the child will learn and will integrate the choreographies naturally and not by imitation. Additionally, dancing really helps children to acquire scholarly skills like writing, reading and art as well.”
Curtat-Cadet collaborated with child concept artist Cristina Do Carmo De Sousa Gomes for the endeavour.
Just Dance 2018 heads to Wii, Wii, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4 and Nintendo Switch on 26 October.
