Just Dance Now uses your mobile device as a motion tracker

Ubisoft today announced Just Dance Now, a mobile/web-based version of its popular motion-tracking dancing game that lets users play Just Dance anywhere as long as they have an internet connection and a smartphone.

According to Ubisoft, anyone with a smartphone and access to a big screen can download the app, connect the two devices and play. There is no limit to the number of people who can play at the same time. The game's launch date and pricing were not announced.

Ubisoft also announced that Just Dance 2015 — the upcoming installment in the console version of the game — will launch this October.

The original Just Dance was released in 2009 for the Wii. Holding the Wii Remote in one hand, players attempted to mimic the moves of the on-screen silhouette dancer. Just Dance 2 was also a Wii-exclusive. Just Dance 3, released in 2011, was available for the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 and used the motion-tracking technology of the respective consoles. The most recent Just Dance title was Just Dance 2014, which was released in Oct. 2014.
