This will be the longest month in my life. It was announced that Nintendo is taking Ubisoft’s popular dancing franchise and localizing it for Japan. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, read more for video examples.
Here is the partial song list found off of HMV’s listing for the game.
Translations and Previews Below.
EXILE「Choo Choo TRAIN」
EXILE＆倖田來未「WON’T BE LONG」
氣志團「One Night Carnival」、
Gorie with Jasmine&Joan「Micky」
Is anyone else as excited as me? Heavy Rotation AND Renai Revolution? It’s the two songs I’d pick from those two groups. I already really enjoyed the game but now that it’s with music that I actually listen to, it’s perfect right?
Well they could still mess up the choreography. One thing Just Dance does wrong is that it fails to have multiple difficulty levels. Each song basically has one set of steps and nothing to grow on after that. So dependent on your skill level it may be too much or not enough for you. Also I’m wondering about the visual style and what Nintendo might do to make it more Japan friendly. I’d like there to be some change but who knows what a Japanese view will do to it. Rumors are thought, most of the songs will be originals and not covers so I can’t contain my excitement.
The release date is set for October 13 for around 5,500 Yen. But before you go import it, make sure you have a Japanese Wii or a way to mod your console. There’s no listing on PlayAsia, but I’ll make sure to post again when it’s available for Pre-Order through an import site.
For those of your not interested in playing yourself, I’ll definitely be broadcasting it so you can just watch.
