Ubisoft has revealed that Just Dance 2016 will incorporate original song “Chiwawa,” created in collaboration with soundtrack composer Tom Salta and Japanese singer Reni Mimura.
The energetic J-pop song tells a surprising tale of a girl who somehow mistakenly steps on her pet Chihuahua, and combines silly choreography with cutesy kawaii culture. Whether that be flashy colours, flat cats on photocopiers or jumping hot dogs, it will be remembered as one of the wackier experiences that the Just Dance series has delivered.
“I knew Reni would be the perfect collaborator for this song. I don’t think I ever laughed so much while working on a song, and I hope people will enjoy it,” explained composer, producer and songwriter Tom Salta.
Japanese singer Reni Mimura added, “Tom and I put together all kinds of wacky ideas and we ended up with something incredibly fun and catchy. I know this song will make people smile.”
Ubisoft Paris creative director Alkis Argyriadis warned, “Chiwawa is a fun J-pop song that once you hear, you’ll never forget. The song will be the first Just Dance creation to have an official music video. It was an amazing opportunity for us to collaborate with Director Anne Horel of the award-winning Partizan Agency.”
Just Dance 2016 will release on Wii U and Wii in North America on October 20th, and in Europe on October 23rd.
