Graphics and Interface

Just Dance’s features were very different in the beta version:

  • The scoring system was less detailed.
  • The pictograms were unfinished, as seen in several promotional gameplay pictures. Their bodies were way bigger than the head, legs, and arms, they had no outline, and they were semi-transparent and more 3D.
  • Originally, the coaches’ facial features were a lot more visible.
  • "X" and "OK" were slightly different ("X" was completely red and "OK" was black instead of the player’s color.)
    • Besides, there was supposed to be a "PERFECT" feedback, but it was removed. The "PERFECT" feedback would later replace the "GREAT" feedback in the following game.
  • Lyrics were going to have a fading effect between two lines.
  • The avatars were more colorful and had black highlights (instead of white ones).
  • Originally, the game used a different font.
