Kids mode coming to Just Dance 2018

Ubisoft has announced that Just Dance 2018 will have a dedicated Kids mode, where young children can play in a kid-friendly environment. Thanks to a tailored interface, scoring, choreographies and special characters, kids will be able to enjoy the game in complete autonomy, with positive and supportive feedback.

Ubisoft created a dedicated mode for the youngest to play in collaboration with two child development experts: Martine Curtat-Cadet, child choreography expert, and Cristina Do Carmo De Sousa Gomes, child concept artist. Kids’ Mode was built to be beneficial for kids’ motor development, with a design completely adapted to this specific audience.
As Curtat-Cadetexplains: “Children aged between 3 and 6 quite often have difficulties reproducing fast and complex movements. 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.”

As a result, 8 songs have been choreographed for kids to encourage healthy movement. 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.

Just Dance 2018 will be available on all motion-control gaming platforms, including Nintendo Switch, Wii U, Wii,  Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation3 on October 26.
