- Just Dance 2023 is about to be released in just a few days
- The developers have launched a teaser showing LoL’s Jinx is going to be included
- There are rumors other songs from LoL and Arcane will come to Just Dance 2023
Riot Games and Ubisoft have come together to include many popular games from the LoL franchise into Just Dance 2023.
Jinx Is Coming to Just Dance
With the gradual proliferation of more affordable special tracking equipment, games that use your own body motions, instead of just a mouse and keyboard or controller, become more popular. A genre that’s been quite famous for using such tech is motion-based rhythm games, and Just Dance is one of the most well-known such games.
The series’ 2023 edition will be released very soon, on November 22, and it includes songs such as Million Dollar Baby by Ava Max and Heat Waves by Glass Animals. On top of these hits, Just Dance will also make a collaboration with League of Legends in order to bring none other than the Loose cannon Jinx to the game.
The teaser released by the Just Dance devs shows one of the game’s signature neon instructors dressed up like Jinx as we see her in Riot’s critically acclaimed animated TV show Arcane. She is standing on top of a Zaunite rooftop, one which fans of the series might recognize as the place where Jinx and Vi reunite in Arcane’s second.
The 9-second-long teaser on Twitter was followed by a full video on YouTube of Jinx dancing to the song “Playground” from the Arcane series. This suggests that players will be able to play many more songs from the show.
This is not the first time Ubisoft and Riot have worked together on a collaboration for Just Dance. Riot Games has been often hailed as one of the best producers of video game music. The company has often poured tons of dollars into the development of music, perhaps more popularly as promotional material for the various League of Legends World Championships. For example, Warriors by Imagine Dragons, a song made for the 2014 Worlds, has almost 400 million views on YouTube alone.
Building on this success, Riot has invested more in the production of various EPs to promote their games. It has done so with the virtual League of Legends pop group K/DA, starring Ahri, Akali, Evelynn, and Kai'Sa from the game. Several of the group’s songs have already been included in previous iterations of Just Dance, and there are rumors that other songs from K/DA might be included in the soon-to-be-released 2023 version.
