Just Dance 4 Goes Gangnam Style

The “Gangnam Style” sensation has taken over the world, and now it’s about to take over the video game dance scene.

Next month, the recently launched Just Dance 4 will receive South Korean rapper Psy’s YouTube smash hit via downloadable content. It’ll be available for all motion control platforms — Kinect, PlayStation Move and Wii (and I’m assuming Wii U as well) — priced similarly to previous Just Dance DLC (specific pricing will be announced later).

“Gangnam Style and Just Dance 4, I can’t wait to see all the YouTube videos,” said South Korean rapper, Psy.

“We’re dedicated to bringing Just Dance fans access to the music and musicians they love,” said Carrie Feigel, associate director of marketing, Ubisoft North America. “Our fans were really vocal about wanting Gangnam Style in Just Dance 4 and we listened. This marks the first of many hot upcoming DLC tracks for Just Dance 4.”

Personally, I don’t get the whole “Gangnam Style” phenomenon, and I really don’t care to get it, but for millions around the world it’s apparently the catchiest song ever. Putting personal musical taste aside, it does seem like the ideal goofball song/music video for a party dance game, so Ubisoft will no doubt be raking in the DLC dough with this one.
