Trivia

  • Just Dance 2018 introduces a new score phrase: "SUPER", which stands between "GOOD" and "PERFECT".
  • Just Dance 2018 marks the first 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 2014. Instead of a rendered 3D crown, the icon is now a flat white 2D icon inside of a bubble of the same colour 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).
  • The game’s pictograms also 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" in the ESRB label.
    • Despite this, it still maintained the series' E10+ rating.
  • Just Dance 2018 features two artists (Jamiroquai and Boney M) who hold the record of 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 is the the third time an artist supported the announcement of a Just Dance game, after Flo Rida performing Good Feeling and Jason Derulo performing Want To Want Me.
  • During the E3 presentation, the following costumes appeared:
  • In the first previews, there are some pictogram errors: when the pictogram reaches the end of the slide, the random pictogram from song's sprite will replace the correct one during the fading phase.
  • The preview gameplay videos available on the official US and UK Just Dance YouTube channels differ for 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.
  • 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 to another shape (in this case, superellipses).
    • The first one was Just Dance 2, the second was Just Dance 3 (both of which crops squares into circles) and the third was the Wii, Wii U, and PS3 versions of Just Dance 4 (crops squares into D shapes).
  • Lyrics appear slightly differently 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 grey line scrolls up from the "next line" line and begins highlighting, the grey line that replaces it will "swoop in" from the bottom of the screen, similarly to Just Dance Now.
  • Coaches on covers are much closer than in previous games.
  • The titles for the UK previews of Footloose, John Wayne and Kissing Strangers display the word "[OFFICIEL]" (which is actually the French for "official") instead of the already mentioned English word.[10]
