Ubisoft has announced the development of ABBA You Can Dance, a new video game based on the music and performances of Swedish supergroup ABBA.
Developed exclusively for the Wii by Ubisoft Paris, the studio that created the Just Dance series, as well as Ubisoft Montpellier and Ubisoft Bucharest, ABBA You Can Dance will be released worldwide in November.
ABBA You Can Dance features 25 ABBA songs, including all of the group's biggest hits, such as Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Take a Chance on Me and Waterloo. The game's choreographed routines and environments were inspired by the group's music videos and live performances.
"In the video game market, Ubisoft is the dancing king," said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA chief marketing and sales officer at Ubisoft. "With ABBA You Can Dance, players can dance, they can jive, and they can have the time of their lives, all thanks to ABBA's music and Ubisoft's latest entertaining dance video game."
Two players can sing along to lyrics that appear on-screen, while up to four players can simultaneously perform the dance moves. A mini-musical mode lets players act out the key roles in a love story based on some of the group's classic songs.
