Just Dance Wiki

Menu and Design

The menu is generally similar in appearance to its predecessor in Just Dance 2020. The gradients have, however, been replaced with a pixelated texture. A key difference is the introduction of "Pertinence" as a menu sort option, which sorts the song selection menu algorithmically rather than alphabetically as in "Catalog". This is the default sort option when the game is connected to the internet. Alternate Routines can be unlocked by playing the corresponding Classic routine three times instead of five times.

Likewise, the Profile tab has been conserved from Just Dance 2020. The Gift Machine now appears in a cheetah print design and rewards players with avatars, stickers, aliases, and skins. The sticker albums are themed on the background of Without Me which can be unlocked by danced songs from the map in the main track list two times in order to unlock a sticker.

Rating Summary: This is a rhythm-and-dance simulation game in which players perform choreographed routines by following the movements of on-screen characters. Players score points by accurately moving their bodies in time to the music and scrolling indicators. Some song lyrics contain the words “damn” and “hell” and references to suggestive material (e.g., “Feeling your hands/Upon up on my thighs”; "But friends don’t know/The way you taste..."; "Polyamorist dreams/Of a teen heart"; “I got the right tactics to turn you on”).


Just Dance 2021 received "mixed or average" reviews on Metacritic, with a metascore of 74/100 on Nintendo Switch.[4]


  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game to be revealed at a Nintendo Direct presentation instead of a major gaming convention. This is most likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic causing major gaming events such as E3 to be cancelled.
    • It is the second game, after Just Dance, to not be revealed at E3.
    • It is also the first game to have new tracks revealed at Ubisoft Forward.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the second game in the main Just Dance series to be leaked on the Xbox website, after Just Dance 2014.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game to release teasers of the songs after the game’s announcement, as opposed to alongside the announcement.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game in the series to be released on the Xbox Series X/S and PlayStation 5.
    • It is also the first game in the series to use the Ubisoft Connect name and logo.
  • On the Xbox Series X/S, the game requires an internet connection, due to the fact that support for Kinect was terminated, and using a smartphone requires internet.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game to be released in Japan via any PlayStation console.[5][6]
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game in the main series to have kana support on a non-Nintendo console.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game in the main franchise to not be released on the Wii.
    • Additionally, Just Dance 2021 is the first game since Just Dance 3 to only be available on one Nintendo console.
    • Consequently, it is the first game to be unavailable on any 7th-generation platforms, ending the use of recycling assets from Just Dance 2015.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game in the main series to not contain any songs from the 1980s.
  • Discounting Kids Mode, Just Dance 2021 is the first game since Just Dance 2014 to have no instrumental songs.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game where only one box art is used for all regions. In previous games, there would be either a completely different box art, or some variations between box arts.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the second game in the main series to be rated E by the ESRB. It is preceded by Just Dance 2019.
    • It would have been the third if Just Dance 2 had kept its original ESRB rating (E).[7]
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game in the series to display a tally of counted moves scored along with the ratings out of the total number of counted moves for each player on the results screen after playing a routine normally. Previously, this was only seen in the World Dance Floor from 8th-generation versions of Just Dance 2017 and onward.
    • This feature is only available if one person is playing.
    • The first Just Dance game also had a similar counting feature, however, it only displayed the percentages of each rating.
  • On some copies of the game, the catalogue order is randomized and updates daily, called "Pertinence".
    • This feature is later used on Just Dance 2022 in all copies when the game is opened with internet.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game with a Just Dance Unlimited season that doesn't feature any returning songs since seasons are added to the game in Just Dance 2019.
  • According to the Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited files, most of the songs from Just Dance 2021 and its Just Dance Unlimited exclusives have default menu colors (Tundora, Cod Gray, Silver Chalice, and Boulder respectively).
  • A recent update on the game causes many of the Aliases to show "<Missing_[numbercode]>".
  • Just Dance 2021 is the third game in a row to have all its routines on Just Dance Unlimited.
  • Just Dance 2021 is the first game since Just Dance 2014 to include an unused coach on its boxart, this time being Run the World (Girls).
