Just Dance 3 is a dance game developed and published by Ubisoft. It is the third installment in the series and the first to be released on the Xbox 360 and the PS3. The game was released on October 7, 2011 with the PS3 version being released on December 6, 2011.

Gameplay

Like previous installments, the game focuses on up to four players who mimic on-screen dance moves. Along with the solo and duet modes, there is a Dance Crew mode which allows four players to dance together. Dance Mashups combine different and previous dance routines to different songs. Modes that make a return include Non-Stop Shuffle, Speed Shuffle, and Just Sweat Mode.

The Wii and PlayStation 3 versions have a Hold My Hand dance mode, where up to 8 players can play sharing four controllers. On The Xbox, there is also a mode called "Just Create" which allows players to link together their own moves into a custom routine for a song.

Another Xbox 360 exclusive mode is named Dance Off, and it looks similar to Just Create; sometimes the game asks you to dance freely to a certain point of the song, and then it replays it.

Trivia

  • The player needs a total of 645 Mojo points/stars to unlock every unlockable item.
    • But in the Xbox 360 version, the number of Mojo/Stars to unlock every unlockable is extended.
  • Just Dance 3 is the first game to include an Extreme routine, a Sweat routine, a Hold My Hand routine, and a Mashup routine.
  • When censoring words in the lyrics, Just Dance 3 does not use ellipses (...) unless it is a downloadable track that debuted in a previous game which used them in its original appearance.
  • The Xbox 360 list is listed in alphabetical order. The Wii and PS3 list are listed in the order above.
  • There is a glitch in the Wii version. If the player does a duet or dance crew before unlocking the Solo Medley, P1 of the duet or dance crew will be shown in the character select menu instead of the correct dancer.
  • Just Dance 3 is the first game where even though all the faces of the dancers are white (excluding Hey Boy Hey Girl: whose face is purple), the facial features can be seen clearly.
  • The Xbox 360 version is very different from the Wii and PS3 versions, the backgrounds and effects are considerately different, sometimes more advanced. This is also the case with Just Dance: Greatest Hits.
  • On the PS3 version of the game, the store is not available. Instead, it was replaced by PS3 song exclusives.
    • Also, the lyrics appear a little farther then what it was in the Wii version.
  • This game is a Guinness World Records holder for being the best-selling casual game and the best-selling third party game on the Wii.[1]
  • The bubbles in the menu for songs are actually squares in the game files.
  • Gold Moves seem to be more sophisticated on Xbox 360 than on the Wii and PlayStation 3. The Xbox version comes in slower and gradually than all at once like on Wii. It then proceeds to wait a second and then plays out the effect. Again, this is slower and gradual on the Xbox version than Wii. The gold move after shine will only occur on the Xbox if it was performed correctly.
  • On the PS3 version of the game, the lyrics are highlighted in karaoke-style. They are highlighted in blue when a male is singing and pink when a female is singing in a similar fashion to the first two games of the Japanese series.[2]
    • Thus, the PS3 version of this game marks the introduction lyrics being highlighted in the main series which would become another recurring feature in later games. The only difference is the display of the gender who is being heard (blue and green for males, pink for females) to the left of the lyrics.
  • On the Xbox 360 the next line in the lyrics is more faded and further down from the top line than the PS3 or Wii.
  • The Xbox 360 has a "Shout Out" feature- certain lines are highlighted blue and when they are about to appear a blue megaphone bubble pops up above the lyrics which changes to either a blue PERFECT or an X depending on how well the player sings the line into the Kinect sensor. This can score you bonus points and Mojo.
    • Afterwards after the routine ends and the scores are shown, in the bottom left corner, if a megaphone then a star appear the player received bonus points for the Shout Out lines. It will also earn an additional Mojo point.
    • The Shout Out feature is also present in Just Dance: Greatest Hits/Best Of, whose gameplay is virtually identical to Just Dance 3’s.
    • Following the Shout Out feature, Just Dance 4 lacked a karaoke feature, after which Just Dance 2014 onwards included one whenever there is a microphone connected regardless of console. The difference is that instead of only selected lines, the later karaoke feature included the whole song and GOOD and OK scores could also be obtained.
  • There are some beta dancers in the PAL boxart, there is what appears to be a duet, both have glasses and red and blue suits. Additionally, a beta Barbra Streisand appears on the NTSC cover.
  • Just Sweat now supports 4 players in the game, unlike in Just Dance 2, where only one player could use Just Sweat at a time.
  • The Speed Shuffle mode glitches a bit on Wii: sometimes, the Gold Move effect doesn't appear and the coach fades out without the smooth transition.
  • Similar to Just Dance 2, the start screen will turn golden when you achieve 5 stars on every song. This will only appear in the Wii and PS3 version.
  • In the Dance Off mode, the Gold Moves are not counted.
  • When downloading the game on the Xbox 360 Marketplace in PAL regions, the NTSC cover art is shown as the cover art.
    • However, the PAL cover art is shown when downloading DLC.
  • Sometimes, the menu glitches on Wii: when the players clicks on the arrows, they won't scroll.[3]
  • On the Wii and PS3, the score bar has bubbles which appear as it fills up but this bubble effect was absent on the Xbox 360.
  • The flashing triangle indicating the end of the pictogram slider is in different styles and positions in various scenarios:
    • On the Xbox 360, it is further up than other consoles.
    • On all consoles the triangle has more rounded corners than Just Dance or Just Dance 2 but even more so on the Xbox 360.
    • The pictograms now zoom and fade at the triangle instead of simply disappearing.
    • A completely different style, smaller triangle appeared in some previews and pictures-this was probably a beta element which got eliminated.
    • For Quartets (Dance Crews), the triangle is way further to the left than other routines, near the middle of the screen-this did not recur later on in the series (in games with the beating spotlight), nor in Just Dance 3 Quartet routines appearing on later instalments like Just Dance Unlimited.
  • Just Dance 3 is the last game in the main series to use a triangle at the end of the line-the one to be used in Just Dance 4 was replaced with the beating spotlight for the final game and this continued in further games.
    • Also, the Gold Move effect from this game is used in the Beta version of Just Dance 4 along with the sound effect from that said game. It was also used in Just Dance Wii 2.
  • Just Dance 3 marks the first Just Dance game to use Ubisoft’s reward system, Uplay, which was later known as Ubisoft Club.
    • It was only available on the Xbox 360 version.
    • It would later be used in future main Just Dance games on every system besides Wii and Switch.
    • Starting with Just Dance 2018, Switch players can log in to Ubisoft Club.
  • The Xbox 360 version of Just Dance 3 runs at 30fps while the Wii and PS3 versions run at 60fps.
    • Also, the Ubisoft logo animation movie is different than its normal version in the Xbox 360 version.
  • A song titled Cheesy Voices can be heard during the credits of Just Dance 3.[4]
  • The Korean version of Just Dance 3, which was only released on the Wii, has a different text font.[citation needed]
  • The Xbox 360 background of the mashups was different to the one used for the Wii and PS3 versions of the game.
  • As of January 31, 2019, downloadable tracks will no longer be obtainable for the Wii version of this game due to the discontinuation of the Wii Shop Channel and Nintendo WFC Pay & Play services. The ability to add Wii Points has been removed on March 26, 2018.
