Just Dance 4 is a dance/rhythm game developed and published by Ubisoft. It is the fourth instalment in the series and the first to be released on the Wii U. The game was released on October 2, 2012, with the Wii U version being released on November 18, 2012.      


Players are judged on their ability to mimic dance moves performed by on-screen dancers. Players can choose the song they dance to and the score is kept depending on the number of accurate timings and movements.

New features and modes in Just Dance 4 include a dance battle mode, expansions to the game's Just Sweat mode, and unlockable bonus routines for specific songs.

Players can unlock 'Dance Quests', with each song having up to six missions that can be completed. To complete these quests, players would have to follow specific criteria and movements to clear them.

Dancer Cards can be created by players which display their most frequently played songs, their highest scores, and online and offline challenges. Online leaderboards are available for the Wii U, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions of the game.

Another new feature is the new visual; The excess neon used on the clothes of the dancers previously have been removed, and clothes are shown in their natural, more realistic state. Also, the dancers’ color schemes are no longer gradient. Backgrounds are also more detailed and animated, rather than the simple backgrounds used in previous games.

Special Editions

Just Dance 4 Special Edition

There is a special edition of the game which only adds one song; Umbrella by Rihanna, as well as an Alternate Version to the song, can be unlocked in-game. However, the Special Edition is only for the PAL Wii due to Umbrella being on the default tracklist for all other consoles.

Wii U Version

The Wii U version of Just Dance 4 has its special additions and features as well as having the most exclusive Mashups. For the first time in the series, a game mode can support up to 5 players at once. Puppet Master Mode allows four players to dance on-screen at once, while the fifth player uses the Wii U Gamepad and becomes the Master of Ceremonies. The MC can switch dance routines in real-time. The other four players must perform the moves decided by the MC.

The Wii U operator also can create custom choreographies on Puppet Master Modes and choose the next song. The Wii U controller allows light painting, which can be used for writing/drawing things on the screen for the other 4 players. It is also possible to display the lyrics on the gamepad.

Also, 3 exclusive songs are included, Ain't No Other Man, Domino and Want U Back in the Wii U version of the game. (Want U Back is a DLC on the other three consoles.)

  • The exemplary images in the DLC instruction manual show songs that were never made available for purchase in the game, like AlrightKatti Kalandal and Brand New Start. The first two were DLC in the previous game, whereas the latter is a code unlockable in this one.
    • Curiously, the Brand New Start cover in the DLC instruction manual uses the Jungle Drum dancer (Kids in America in the Xbox 360 version).
  • Just Dance 4 is the last game in a row to have a song by Britney Spears, as at least one song of hers is in every game in the main series except for Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance 2015.
  • On the PlayStation 3 version, if there is DLC downloaded to the system, the scores won't be seen next to the dancer(s) like in the other consoles. They have to be seen through the leaderboard.
  • The effort ratings were removed in this game, and they have been absent from every game in the main series up until Just Dance 2019 .
  • This is the first game in the main series where lyrics are highlighted on all consoles. The highlighting colour is usually the same as the coach's glove or the pictograms.
  • Battle Mode was first introduced to the main series in this game. It would appear for the last time on Just Dance 2014.
  • On the NTSC box art, Umbrella and Moves Like Jagger have different colour schemes, but Umbrella's colour scheme is from the bridge when she turns golden.
  • On the PAL box art, Mr. Saxobeat has different colour schemes.
  • No Mashups in this game have gold moves. This is the only game in the series where they are omitted from that mode.
  • There are 33 total Mashups in the game. However, only the Wii U version holds all of them. The Wii and Xbox 360 versions have only 12 of them each, and the PS3 version has 24 of them.
  • Just Dance 4 has the most original routines in the series. There are:
    • 50 classic routines.
    • 10 alternate routines.
    • 16 brand new DLCs.
  • On the Wii U version of the game, there is a notification that will appear at the bottom-right corner of the song list saying that there are 64 Mojo levels. However, there are only 62 gifts on the Wii U version.
    • On the rest of the consoles, its maximum level is 33.
  • Light painting and karaoke are not available while playing Puppet Master Modes.
  • In gameplay footage of the beta version, the pictogram bar has a flashing triangle where the pictograms fade, much like the previous three games. In the released version, it's replaced by a rectangle.
  • The Gold Move effect from Just Dance 3 and Just Dance Wii 2 is used along with the sound effect from this game in the beta version.
  • The On Fire feature, which was used to give you more points if you get multiple "Perfect"s or "Good"s in a row, has been removed from the game. It has been absent from every game in the main series ever since.
  • The game files contain a video of various people from the development team dancing randomly and wearing various costume accessories. This video is formatted like other coach videos in the files.
  • On the title screen in the Xbox 360 version, the coach from Disturbia shows the pose that the player has to do (by raising his or her hand) to activate the menu control.
  • You're the First, the Last, My Everything plays during the Credits.
  • If the player continues the song after pausing, it'll go on to the countdown starting with 3. The speed depends on the song's BPM.
  • The Wii U version’s menu has a different Back button and loading icon.
  • The Wii version of Just Dance 4 is the last game in the series to run at 60fps in that console. All following games run at 30fps.
  • The game was supposed to have Medley, but it was removed for unknown reasons.[3]
  • The Gold Move sound is not played on Wii Remotes; instead, they vibrate when a player correctly does a Gold Move.
  • The lyrics are closer to the edge on the Wii.
  • Starting with this game, the lyric lines are generally longer than in previous games.
  • Just Dance 4 is the first game to be available for 8th-gen consoles (Wii U). The previous three games were only available for 7th-gen consoles.
  • The Xbox 360 version of the game does not have a crown above the leader’s name. Instead, the leader will have gold arcs below their name and Kinect silhouette.
  • An Autodance will not be recorded when playing a DLC song.
  • As of January 31, 2019, downloadable tracks are no longer obtainable in the Wii version of the 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.
  • When exiting back to the main menu during the gameplay, the current score will be saved. This also happens when restarting the song. The only way to avoid this is to completely turn off the game. 
  • Just Dance 4 is the third game in the series to be nominated for Favorite Video Game at the Kids Choice Awards.
