Ubisoft's Just Dance 4 and Rocksmith receive release dates
Just Dance 4, Ubisoft's newest installment to their popular dance franchise, has an official release date of October 9 in the United States. It is set to launch on October 2 in EMEA. The Wii U release date was not announced, but Ubisoft did confirm that it will be released during the Wii U's "launch window".
Just Dance 4 will be released on the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and, for the first time ever, the Wii U. The Wii U will actually contain specific gameplay to its unique GamePad tablet controller. Playing off of Nintendo's asymmetric gameplay theme with the Wii U, Just Dance 4 will utilize the tablet controller for a fifth player who will select the dance moves for the other four players to perform.
In the same press statement, Ubisoft also announced that Rocksmith, now with new content that allows players to plug in and play with bass guitar, will be released on October 16 in the U.S. The bass will be available for existing American Rocksmith owners to purchase as DLC on September 4. For those in EMEA, Rocksmith with bass will be released on September 27 for Xbox 360 and PS3. It will arrive on PC on October 18th in EMEA.
Last but not least, Ubisoft's blockbuster shooter Far Cry 3 also received a new release date. The delay until late November/early December will allow for "more time to create the best possible gameplay experience".
It looks like a jam packed holiday season for Ubisoft, but will it pay off? Let's not forget Assassin's Creed 3 also releases at the end of October.
