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) or simply referred to Yo-kai Watch: Just Dance is a music game for the Wii U, and a collaboration between Level-5's Yo-kai Watch and Ubisoft's Just Dance franchises. The game was released on December 5, 2015 in Japan.

The game comes in two editions. While both of them featured the Sergeant 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.
