Yo-kai Watch Dance: Just Dance Special Version (Japanese: 妖怪ウォッチダンス:ジャストダンスジャストダンススペシャルバージョン Yōkai Uotchi Dansu: Jasuto Dansu Supesharu Bājon) is a music game developed by Level-5 and Ubisoft, which is a spin-off of Just Dance series.

It was released for the Wii U on December 5, 2015 in Japan, with two editions. While both of them featured the Sgt. Burly Song Medal, they were available with or without a Wii Remote included.

It uses the engine from Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance Wii U.

Development & Release

The game was revealed in September's CoroCoro Magazine issue, as Level-5 announced that they would collaborate with Ubisoft's Just Dance series. The title of the game was also revealed at that time, as well as that songs from the Yo-kai Watch series that would be included in the game. At that time, there wasn't an official release date.

Later on, Level-5 announced that the game would be released on December 5, 2015. It was also revealed that newer songs like Uchuu Dance and Jinsei Dramatic would be in the game with Hailey Anne, Usapyon and other 'Merican Yo-kai.[2] It also showed off how medals could be read with the Wii U's Gamepad, allowing the player to fill up their Yo-kai Avatar collection easier.

Changes from the original games

  • The Gold Move visual effect is taken from Just Dance 2014, even though the sound is different and the Yo-kai's head can be seen.
  • The Star sound effects are taken Just Dance 2015, though it has been altered.
  • All Avatars are replaced with Yo-kai, and are voiced by their corresponding voice actor or actress.
  • The coaches in the game have a full opaque line around the body unlike a faded opaque in the mainline series. Also, the face shapes are blurred out.
  • This game doesn't have highlighted lyrics.

Song List

The game features a total of ten songs, which are from the first five Japanese opening and ending themes.

In this game, players can collect Yo-kai Badges (Japanese: 妖怪バッジ) which take the form of Avatars from the mainline Just Dance games. They can be obtained from getting a certain amount of stars in a song or from the Yo-kai Dance Gacha (Japanese: 妖怪ダンスガチャ).

There are a total of 110 Avatars to collect, which consist of Yo-kai from the Yo-kai Watch video game to Yo-kai Watch Blasters, with some 'Merican Yo-kai from the then-coming Yo-kai Watch 3 like Puppiccino and Cornfused.
