and live on Freeview channel 276
Just Dance 2023 has announced the game will collaborate with Eurovision ahead of the Liverpool competition. The game teased fans with the new expansion on Twitter in a short video that saw comments from players featured.
The Just Dance series was launched by Ubisoft for the Nintendo Wii back in 2009 and has seen 14 editions of the game, as well as multiple spin offs. Just Dance will host a livestream on its YouTube channel on Monday, May 8 at 4pm (BST).
Showdown season 2 will run from May 9 to July 12 and will feature songs from The Eurovision Song Contest. The game has teased the upcoming season with three characters including a robot panda.
The Eurovision Song Contest kicks off on Tuesday May 9 in Liverpool as the UK hosts the competition for the ninth time. The competition will be coming to the UK after last year’s winners Ukraine were unable to host due to the ongoing Russian invasion.
Just Dance told their Twitter fans: “That’s right, icons. #JustDance 2023 Edition coming at you with the collab of the century x”, which received lots of excitement from gamers. Fans have taken to the comments of the social media announcement to share their favourite Eurovision songs that they hope will make the cut.
One user commented: “this is the best thing you’ve ever done” with another adding: “FOR REAL? I have been wanting this for YEARS”. Ubisoft, the developers of Just Dance are yet to announce how many songs will feature on the new release with many speculating that last year’s winner Stefania by Kalush Orchestra will feature alongside the 2022 UK entry Spaceman by Sam Ryder.
