Featuring more than 40 tracks across a wide range of musical genres, including pop, hip-hop, rock, R&B, country, disco, funk, and more, Just Dance 3 introduces a number of new game features that take advantage of the unique mechanics of each console.

To get the party started, Just Dance 3 includes some of today’s hottest hits as well as classic dance tracks that everyone loves. 

The “Just Create” mode allows players to create and record their own dance choreography via the Kinect so they can share with their friends online, save on their Xbox 360 and challenge friends to play their ‘choreography’ like a normal game. In addition, for the first time on Kinect, the new “Four Player Mode” lets four players dance simultaneously with ‘jump in/jump out’ multiplayer.

Just Dance 3’s track list offers a wide range of songs drawn from classic hits and legendary songs to today’s chart-toppers, including Party Rock by LMFAO featuring Lauren Bennett and GoonRock, I Feel Love by Donna Summer, I Was Made for Lovin’ You by Kiss, in addition to Barbra Streisand by Duck Sauce and many other great dance party songs! The game also explores many different music genres such as Bollywood music and Reggaeton. And for those who still want more, they will be able to download tracks from an expanding catalogue of new hits.

Just Dance 3 sold through more than 7 million units since its release, bringing total sell-through of the Just Dance franchise to more than 25 million units worldwide. Launched in October, Just Dance 3 has consistently been in the top five video game sales charts in both the U.S. (NPD) and Europe (GfK Chart Track).

“It’s quite a feat that Just Dance 3 beat out all competition to be the No. 1 game on all motion-controlled platforms for the month of December,” said Tony Key, senior vice president sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “The Just Dance franchise continues to be the game of choice for consumers around the world looking for games with great music and fun dance moves.”
