If for football fans the arrival of FIFA for their favorite console every year has become a tradition, for dancers and partiers Just Dance has become their annual game to celebrate their meetings with friends or family and even for their own fun times. Just Dance 2021 is the twelfth installment of the saga, very linear compared to last year’s game, which celebrated the tenth anniversary with the odd novelty that this year simply remains.
Just Dance 2021 is released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Stadia along with the next generation consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. In addition to taking advantage of the functionalities of PS Move or Joy-Con on their respective platforms, the Players can use their phone to record movement with the app Just Dance Controller, the game being accessible for up to six players at a time.
A new game packed with hit songs
As is customary in each new installment of Just Dance, players have more than 40 new titles, all of them well known, either because they were hits in their day or because they are in fashion today. In this way, there are slow dances like Miss by Shawn Mendes & Camila Cabello, today’s topics like Say so by Doja Cat and Rain on me by Lady Gaga & Ariana Grande, or Hoy’s classic Story You’ve Got a Friend in Me, better known in Spain as There is a friend in me, which unfortunately has not arrived in our country translated.
In addition to the included themes, the game contains integrated purchases for players who want to expand the list of songs, although the list below is very complete and enough to enjoy hours and hours of dancing. In addition, one more year remains Just dance unlimited, the on-demand dance streaming service with access to over 600 songs. The game includes one month free and the subscription fees are:
24 hours: € 2.99 1 month: € 3.99 3 months: € 9.99 12 months: € 24.99

Just Dance 2021, a new title full of hits
All game modes are maintained
Just Dance 2021 maintains its classic game mechanics: follow the dance steps of a teacher that is shown on the screen at all times. No big newsChallenges to obtain collectibles such as avatars, stickers, titles, and backgrounds can once again be overcome. Players can create custom playlists with their favorite songs to throw in back-to-back dances, while the sweat mode continue standing to make dancing a workout, displaying calories burned on a counter.
For the more social, the most fun mode is World Dance Floor, which maintains its competitive and cooperative system, counting on battles against groups or a boss. For those who do not have company but want to have fun with the game with other players can access the online mode, while the smallest of the house have their own game mode, the kids mode, with eight new songs with their own choreographies and the possibility of accessing Disney songs through Just Dance Unlimited.
The fun of all the years
In short, Just Dance 2021 returns to offer the same fun as every year. Although at the playable level there has been no novelty in this year’s edition, the song list is excellent, with timeless hits and the best songs of today. With numerous game modes to enjoy individually or in company in person or remotely, the Ubisoft title is a guaranteed bet on fun. One can only hope that next year’s installment will bet on the odd inclusion for the gameplay according to the large selection of themes that those of Paris have used to us.
