Trivia

  • Just Dance 2018 marks the second time the crown icon which denotes which player in a multiplayer match is in the lead has been changed since the introduction of the feature in Just Dance 2 and the crown change in Just Dance 2014. Instead of a rendered 3D crown, the icon is now a flat white 2D icon inside of a bubble of the same color as the player currently in the lead with a white outline around the bubble.
  • Just Dance 2018’s pictograms have an effect where they will beat in time with the song on every other beat (as opposed to the pictogram bar, which still beats on every beat).
  • Just Dance 2018 marks the first time the pictograms have shadows.
  • Just Dance 2018 is the third game confirmed by Ubisoft to have Just Dance Unlimited.
  • Just Dance 2018 is the first game in the series to have "May contain content inappropriate for children" on its ESRB label.[citation needed]
    • Despite this, the game still maintains the series' customary E10+ rating.
  • Just Dance 2018 features two artists (Jamiroquai and Boney M.) who hold the record for the longest gap between two songs in the series.
  • The songs Automaton, Bubble Pop!, and The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody) were played during the presentation of the game at E3, with Bebe Rexha there in person to sing The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody)
    • This was the third time Ubisoft has brought in an artist to perform at the announcement of a new Just Dance game, after Flo Rida, who performed Good Feeling, and Jason Derulo, who performed Want To Want Me.
  • During the E3 presentation, dancers wearing the following costumes appeared:
  • The preview videos for these songs contain pictogram errors wherein, during the fading phase of pictogram, they are replaced by a random pictogram from the same song:
    • Keep On Moving
    • Got That
    • Blow Your Mind (Mwah)
    • Footloose
    • John Wayne
    • Side To Side
    • Daddy Cool
    • Make It Jingle
    • Love Ward
    • Bubble Pop!
    • Chantaje
    • Automaton
    • The Way I Are (Dance With Somebody)
    • 24K Magic
    • Rockabye
    • Naughty Girl
    • Carmen (Overture)
  • The preview gameplay videos available on the official US and UK Just Dance YouTube channels differ for the songs shown at E3. For example, Automaton shows the first chorus and the second verse on the US account, but it shows the second chorus and the bridge on the UK one.
    • But some song previews have the same part with an additional part in each region. Some examples are, Rockabye, and How Far I'll Go.
  • Several coaches from Just Dance 2017, and Just Dance Unlimited appear in the announcement banner.
  • Just Dance 2018 is the fourth game in the series in which the menu icons are cropped from squares into another shape, in this case, super-ellipses.
    • The first one was Just Dance 2, the second was Just Dance 3 (both of which cropped squares into circles) and the third was the Wii, Wii U, and PS3 versions of Just Dance 4 (which cropped squares into D shapes).
  • Lyrics appear slightly different than previous games - a diagonal line protrudes from the bottom edge of the screen and the lyrics follow the contour of that line when they scroll up.
    • Also, when a gray line scrolls up from the "next line" line and begins highlighting, the gray line that replaces it will "swoop in" from the bottom of the screen, similarly to Just Dance Now.
    • The diagonal line disappears when lyrics aren't shown.
  • Squares are much more zoomed in on the coaches than in previous games.
  • The titles for the UK previews of Footloose, John Wayne and Kissing Strangers contain the word "[OFFICIEL]" (the French word for "official") instead of its English counterpart.[13]
  • Just Dance 2018 marks the second time an artist, in this case Nicki Minaj, has 3 songs in the same game included on the disc. The first time was the Best Buy edition of Just Dance 3, where the artist with three songs was Katy Perry.
  • Just Dance 2018 marks the first time in the Just Dance series that the Ubisoft logo has changed. The new Ubisoft logo (also known as "The UbiSwirl") was initially shown to the public on the UbiBlog on May 31, 2017. The logo animation movie was shown for the first time in Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle.[14]
  • The PC game release was leaked on the ESRB label for the game, making Just Dance 2018 the second game that has been released for the PC after Just Dance 2017.
  • On Nintendo Switch, the Joy-Cons vibrate with the rhythm of music even outside of Double Rumble routines.[citation needed]
  • This is the first game since Just Dance 2014 to have two on-disc alternates for one song. Waka Waka (This Time for Africa) has a kids version alternate and a Dance Crew alternate.
  • This is the first game since Just Dance 2 to not feature any song from The Black Eyed Peas or any of its members.
  • The Gold Move effect is similar to Just Dance 2017 but it has less particles and a red glow effect
    • In the preview video of Me Too on Just Dance Now, the full Gold Move effect uses a similar red glow effect.
  • If the game is pre-ordered from the PlayStation Store on the PlayStation 4, the player can use the following PlayStation Network avatars as their avatar:[15]
  • Just like the last three games, Just Dance 2018 has captions for every alternate routine that is unlocked. Here are the captions attributed to each routine, in order of when they are unlocked:
    • Another One Bites the Dust[12] - Be a real action hero!
    • Automaton[12] - Ketchup or mustard?
    • Bubble Pop![12] - You'll be stuck in the sound...
    • Chantaje[12] - You've got a ticket to ride!
    • Dharma[12] - Face your opponent!
    • Side to Side[12] - Work out like a diva!
    • Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)[12] - Straight to the goal!
    • Kissing Strangers[12] - Put on your dancing shoes!
    • 24K Magic[12] - Be as good as gold...
    • Despacito[12] - Ready for some latin vibes?
    • Tumbum[12] - Warm up the place!
    • John Wayne[12] - Welcome to the Far West!
