'We Dance' (Wii) - New Screens

by Rainier on Aug. 3, 2011 @ 1:54 a.m. PDT

Unlike other dancing games, We Dance utilizes three different styles of play – using the Wii Remote, using a dance mat, or distinctively a combination of both – each offering varying levels of difficulty.

For authenticity, all dance steps have been fully choreographed by professional dancers helping make We Dance a more rewarding and energetic experience. We Dance will be available to buy with one or two’ Star Mats’, or as a solus game.

We Dance will support up to four players dancing simultaneously to 40 classic dance tracks which will challenge and delight gamers. The majority of tracks include the original videos to further add to the experience.

We Dance will launch with 40 licensed tracks spanning four decades of music; from rock to pop, rap to disco and hip hop to drum ‘n’ bass, there is something for everyone.  People can dance to classic floor-fillers and modern hits like Love Shack by the B-52s, Boys and Girls by Pixie Lott, Put Your Hands Up 4 Detroit by Fedde Le Grande, Rhythm Is A Dancer by Snap!, Spice Up Your Life by Spice Girls, Hey Ya! by Outkast and Car Wash by Rose Royce.

“We are incredibly excited to launch a game that is both fun and challenging for players of all abilities and musical tastes,” said Nik Blower, sales and marketing director at Nordic Games. “The response at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles and at our hands-on preview sessions has shown that people really ‘get’ the game. The enthusiasm and genuine passion people have for our games never fails to humble us and this is no exception.”

To prepare for the main game, there are warm-up sessions which ensure people will be ready to really throw themselves into the game, while Dance School provides player tutorials so they can learn the dance steps and hand movements for each song before trying it in the main game.

For authenticity, all dance steps have been fully choreographed by professional dancers helping make We Dance a more rewarding and energetic experience. To guide players, each song has a Star Rating, giving an indication of how difficult each track is.

Crucially, following completion of a routine, gamers will receive their performance statistics – helping them to learn and develop moves and, for the really competitive, there are also leaderboards which feature top player charts.

Unlike other dancing games, We Dance utilises three different styles of play – using the Wii Remote, using a dance mat accessory such as Nordic Games’ ”Star Mat” or distinctively a combination of both – each offering varying levels of difficulty.

In addition to the main game there are three Party Game modes – ‘Jump’, ‘Step’ and ‘Pose’ – featuring a variety of four player mini games to challenge friends and family alike.

Following the successful and familiar We Sing formula, there’s Jukebox mode Dance TV, for people to enjoy all 40 tracks and videos.
