Just Dance 4 is the fourth game in the main series of Just Dance. It was released for the Wii, Xbox 360, and Playstation 3 on October 2, 2012 in Europe (in two editions: a regular edition and a "Special Edition" that contains a bonus song, although the Special Edition is only available for the Wii) and on October 9, 2012 in North America. It was later released for the Wii U on November 2012.

Overview

Just Dance 4 revamped itself from past games to feature a broader experience for players. For one, the graphics for this game were updated to make the dancers look more realistic than in past games, a custom that has now been a staple in later games. They also expanded the Just Sweat mode to enhance it as a workout rather than a little extra. Instead of solely having a Sweat counter on the screen, the Just Sweat mode featured programs. Each program had a different dance style, and it consisted of a mix of routines from the game with routines from the program. At the end, a workout log was shown to the player to show their progress on the program. Mojo was slightly revamped as well. When the gauge was filled, a mini-game called the Wheel of Gifts emerged, allowing the player to spin it and receive a prize.

A new feature to the series was the Puppet Master mode. Exclusive to the Wii U version, the Puppet Master mode gave one person the opportunity to control the routine. By given four options, the player could switch up the moves the others were dancing to by using one of the four options, not choosing any option at all, (Resulting in the game using the default routine for the song) or choosing the Strike a Pose option. This timed feature gave the player four poses to pick from, and when one is selected, the current dance moves are interrupted by the pose, forcing players to mimic the pose. The controller could give points to the player who was able to mimic it the most, or not give any points at all.

Battle mode was also introduced. Ideal for two players, Battle mode gives the players to opportunity to compete for superiority. There are two sides for the players to pick, and the routine is split up in parts, with the winner of the round's song being played for the next round. At the end, the player with the most rounds is crowned the champion of the battle.

Trivia

  • This is the first game to be released first in the PAL region (Europe and Australia) before the NTSC region. The Wii U version (which was a launch title for the system) was however released first in the NTSC region, as the Wii U was coming first in the United States and Canada, both members of the NTSC.
  • This is the first game in the series where effort raings weren't included.
  • Despite Want U Back appearing in the Wii U version of the game, it is still available as DLC in said version.
  • This is the last game in the main series to use Mojo as a "filling". It would become transformed as coins in the next game and its subsequent releases.
