Ubisoft’s bestselling dance title plays host to some of the biggest hits of the year via DLC, including Robin Thicke and Pharrell’s mega-hit Blurred Lines.
Seriously, I don’t think there was a radio station in the continental US that wasn’t playing Blurred Lines in calendar 2013. It was even blasting across the San Diego Convention Center floor at the SDCC thanks to Fox pumping it out at max sound whenever they gave out some freebies at the booth. It was, in a word, inescapable. And now, you can shimmy to it in the comfort of your own home and on your shiny, new next generation video game console.
Robin and Pharrell just represent one of the new songs announced today for inclusion in the new edition of Just Dance through the wonderful world of downloadable content. Other tunes include:
- “What About Love” by Austin Mahone
- “One Way or Another” by One Direction
- “Sexy and I Know It” by LMFAO
- “American Girl” by Bonnie McKee
- “Blurred Lines” by Robin Thicke Ft. Pharrell Williams (alternate choreography version)
A total of 45 tracks are in the game already, but the DLC offerings definitely update things nicely for music buffs and supplement the default track list. Even without the DLC though, JD14 is stocked with a whole bunch of popular music and gamers can groove to the sweet sounds of “Applause” by Lady Gaga, “Kiss You” by One Direction, “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk ft. Pharrell Williams and “Starships” by Nicki Minaj right out of the box. Also available now, and as a free download to boot, is “Roar” by Katy Perry, which is also about as popular as pop songs can get right now.
If you’re looking to get into the groove, Just Dance 2014 is available now for the Xbox One/360, PS4/3, Wii U and Wii.
