Ubisoft’s next installment in the popular rhythm game franchise Just Dance is launching on October 20 however, a demo of Just Dance 2016 is available now. The demo is for WiiU, Xbox One, and PS4 and is available for free to those that have installed the Just Dance Controller app on their smartphones.

The Just Dance 2016 demo is just one song, “Blame” by Calvin Harris Ft. John Newman. The full game will include more than 40 new tracks to dance along to. Popular artists included are Meghan Trainor, Lady Gaga, Jason Derulo and more.

To play the demo you’ll need the Just Dance Controller app available for Apple and Android devices. The app acts as a controller and allows players to use their phone instead of any other peripherals to sense their movement and navigate through the game. Just Dance fans may be skeptical of how accurate the app may be but with a free demo it’s worth a try.

Those interested in playing the demo will need to download the Just Dance Controller app for their Apple or Android smartphone. Then download the Just Dance 2016 demo on their Wii U, PS4 or Xbox One. To play the game using the controller app both console and smartphone will need to be connected to the same wi-fi network and the phone should be held in the right hand while playing to properly detect movement.

It sounds easy and an interesting use of new technology. The app is only available for iOS and Android devices at the moment but a Windows Phone version will be available soon. An Xbox Live membership is required for Xbox One users interested in trying the demo. To keep up with the latest news on Just Dance 2016 visit the game’s website.
