E3 2015: Just Dance 2016 will jam without a camera

Just Dance 2016 continues Ubisoft's dance franchise, albeit without a camera peripheral requirement. A streaming service is also opening up for next-gen users.


Just Dance 2016 will continue Ubisoft's long-running dance franchise this year, but with a bit of a twist. Camera peripherals will not be required to play, as users will be able to utilize their smartphones to play. That eliminates the need for Kinect, Wii Remotes, or other similar motion peripherals, though they will clearly still be supported.

A Just Dance streaming service is also set to launch alongside the game, allowing users to pick up new songs at any time. The service will be open to anyone on Xbox One and PS4. Pricing details were not announced.

Just Dance 2016 is set to release this October on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
