Ubisoft on Friday announced Just Dance Kids
, a spin-off of the multi-million selling Wii music and rhythm game Just Dance
that features kid pop songs, due in November this year.
The game, like the original, will be a Wii exclusive. In May this year, Ubisoft said November 2009's Just Dance
was approaching the 3 million mark
in unit sales. For weeks after its release, the game remained a strong seller in North America and in the UK.
, a lower-development-cost video game with a launch price of $39.99, sold 2 million units world wide in about four months on the market. Ubisoft said at the time the game was "the fastest-selling new intellectual property from a third-party publisher on Wii."
The announcement of Just Dance Kids
comes after the June announcement of Just Dance 2
, due this fall for Nintendo Wii. Just Dance Kids
will feature over 40 dances created by professional choreographers and led by real kids.
Ubisoft U.S. director of marketing Adam Novickas said the upcoming kid title will be "a great way for the family to interact together and learn new dance routines, in addition to providing a great form of exercise." The game's soundtrack will include "Holiday,"Naturally" and "One Time."
