Leftovers

Graphics and Interfaces

  • The game initially retained the stars and feedback icons from Just Dance 2018.
  • The game originally used the Just Dance 2018 Gold Move effect. This can be seen in the E3 previews (along with Havana’s) and the E3 demo.
  • In the E3 previews, the letters on the feedback icons are more separated from each other.
    • Besides, the stars do not have shading effects and they have a cartoony design.
  • During E3, the "SUPERSTAR" and "MEGASTAR" feedback did not feature the letters’ effects.
  • In the E3 version, the coach selection screen only consisted of a gradient; in the final version, instead, there is a menu banner behind it.
  • In the E3 trailer, the "SUPERSTAR" feedback was the normal star color instead of blue.
  • The following differences can be seen between the E3 version of the song selection menu and the final one:
    • Songs were not sorted alphabetically.

    • The icons for the menu options had a blue diagonal gradient.
    • The Dancer Card item only used a generic smiling face instead of the smiling panda icon from the final game.
    • The design of the player’s Online Lever was much simpler, as it only consisted of a small circle with a blue number written in a thin font.
    • The bottom part of the stars was erased, making them look sunk in the background, and "SUPERSTAR" or "MEGASTAR" was displayed under the player’s stars if they had been gained.
    • "Dancer of the Week" was displayed on the top right rather than in the middle of the top part of the screen, the stars were not aligned with the player’s flag, the player’s name and the score were bigger and the title was not shown.
    • Originally, the Just Dance 2018 soundtrack would be used but it was scrapped for unknown reasons. This was demonstrated in the E3 demo.
    • When the game launched the E3 scoring screen was used.
      • This was changed in the update on December 20, 2018.
