A "SUPER" rating has been added to the game. It stands between the existing ratings for "GOOD" and "PERFECT", which judge the level of accuracy that one does a move with.
In addition to the existing "Superstar", which was introduced in Just Dance 2017, the following scoring milestone has been introduced in this game:
"Megastar", which can be obtained by reaching at least 12000 points.
An asterisk (*) indicates that this song is covered in-game.
The game is set to contain 43 tracks. Currently, 15 tracks have been confirmed.
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).
A pair of dancers resembling Sebastian and Mia from the movie La La Land.
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.
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.
