Steve Hannley of Hardcore Gamer noted that Ubisoft had defied his prediction that Just Dance Unlimited would be the future of the franchise and that would be no further physical releases, but felt that Ubisoft had put a larger effort into the on-disc content of 2017 than 2016 (which he described as being a "last minute afterthought" to introduce Unlimited). The Just Dance Machine mode was considered to be "pointless" due to being a basic concept driven by its presentation, but was "a concept that's never been done before in rhythm games and an example of the innovation the series needs to warrant a another physical release". Hannley also praised the higher quality of the game’s soundtrack, including more recent hit music, fewer "joke" songs, and surfacing Gigi Rowe’s "impressive" debut single "Run the Night". In conclusion, Hannley continued to assert that Ubisoft should focus more on providing more immediate access to recent music rather than requiring players to wait for the next annual physical release, but that Just Dance 2017 was "thankfully a marked improvement over its predecessor."
- The game's name was revealed in a video uploaded by Ubisoft Brasil on YouTube, which also confirmed a virtual reality mode. The video later went private for a few hours before being released to the public again.
- However, Ubisoft Brasil claimed that the game would not feature a virtual reality mode. This was later proven false.
- On the first day of E3 2016, a total of five coaches (Sorry, Worth It, Lean On, PoPiPo, and Can’t Feel My Face) were revealed on the Facebook page of Ubisoft Brasil.
- The Gold Move effect for this game was revealed through Just Dance Now’s routine previews and Just Dance Unlimited announcements.
- Just like the last two games, Just Dance 2017 has captions for every alternate routine you unlock, but only on seventh-gen consoles. Here are the captions attributed to each routine, in order of when they are unlocked:
- Don’t Stop Me Now - Never say no to Panda!
- Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae) - Dance with your family!
- Cake By The Ocean - Ready for a date?
- RADICAL - Put your helmet on!
- DADDY - Ready for a little workout?
- What Is Love - In the mood for a road trip?
- Lean On - Don't step on the scarf!
- Hips Don’t Lie - Follow my hips!
- Cheap Thrills - Want to be a Bollywood star?
- El Tiki - The more the merrier!
- September - Are you ready to sweat?
- Sorry - Do you need a second chance?
- Worth It - Ready to rock the stage?
- Scream & Shout - Golden is not silence!
- This is the first game in the main series to be available for PC (via Steam and Uplay) and Nintendo Switch (formerly Nintendo NX).
- It is also the first main series game not to have a Katy Perry song in the main tracklist or appear as an original/recycled DLC.
- To date, this main series game has the most console releases (eight).
- This game is the most linguistically diverse, containing songs performed in the following eleven languages: English, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Korean, Albanian, Romanian, Russian, French, Turkish, and Polish.
- The game was 'released' in France two weeks before it was meant to be officially released.
- This is the second time (after Kiss You in Just Dance 2014) that the first song in the menu is not performed by a solo female. On seventh-gen consoles, the first song is Cake By The Ocean, which is performed by a solo man; on eighth-gen consoles, the first song is All About Us, which is performed by a trio of a man and two women.
- All three returning Ubisoft Club Exclusive songs are from Just Dance 2016.
- When a holiday is near, the game will display a theme of the said holiday in the Song Selection screen (ex: a Halloween theme was added on October 26, 2016). This only happens on eighth generation consoles and the PC, however.
- The PC & the Switch version of the game don't have Karaoke, and displays only lyrics.
- The digital Gold edition for Xbox One does not contain three months for Just Dance Unlimited.
- There is a glitch where when the player is about to get superstar, the first "S" is delayed.
- Out of all the games in the series, Just Dance 2017 has the fewest tracks, after Just Dance, with only 40 songs (excluding Unlimited exclusives). It is also the game with the fewest Mashups (10) and the first game since Just Dance 4 to not have Party Master Mode.
- When viewing Autodances, videos of What Is Love, I Love Rock ‘N’ Roll, and Last Christmas will play the original versions of the songs.
- Just Dance 2017 is the sixth game in the series to be nominated for a Kid's Choice Award. The only exceptions are Just Dance and Just Dance 2015.
- On 7th-gen systems the covers for Bonbon, Scream and Shout, Groove, Lean On, and Can't Feel My Face have the glass like effect from Just Dance 2014's squares.
- When the Nintendo Switch was launched it did not include the songs Like I Would or Last Christmas, those two songs were only playable on Just Dance Unlimited.
