Today, Ubisoft® announced the new season of the Just Dance World Cup, with a brand new competition format for the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain. Endorsed by 5 well-known social media celebrities, and even more special guests, the Just Dance World Cup aims to become the first talent competitive show based on a video game.
THE FIRST EUROPEAN CASTING EVER ORGANISED TO SECURE A PLACE IN THE NATIONAL FINAL
For the last three years, the Just Dance World Cup has successfully taken a unique approach to the world of eSport competition: not only has it been the perfect match between video games and physical activity, but the only existing eSport show.
This year, the Just Dance World Cup reinvents itself, by transforming its qualification process and adopting a reality show model in France, UK, Germany, Italy and Spain:
Online selection per country: local qualifications will start online on July 16th 2017 and will allow 4 candidates to qualify per territory.
A new qualification format: each capital city will pick their 4 candidates during a series of European auditions organised on September 16th 2017 in Paris, Berlin, London, Rome and Madrid, in front of a jury of experts, with the support of the social media talent who will be at the casting. France will select 3 candidates during its auditions, with the final slot awarded to the winner at Paris Games Week.
To be broadcasted on a major national channel, the best candidates of both selection processes will secure their chance to participate in the National Final to become the National Just Dance Champion. Each National Champion will then move on to the final stage of the competition; the Just Dance World Cup Finals in early 2018. The worldwide champion will have the unique opportunity to participate in the next Just Dance, with the creation of their own map in Just Dance Unlimited*.
A COMPETITION ENDORSED BY SOCIAL MEDIA CELEBRITIES
For its 4th season, the Just Dance World Cup has partnered with the most talented Youtubers in Europe. Natoo in France, Sophia Grace in the UK, Julien Bam in Germany, Favij in Italy and Paula Gonu in Spain will bring their personality and creativity to the JDWC, and will sit in as jury members during the National Finals.
In addition to the five headline stars, many more Youtubers such as Une petite Jajoux, Tim in France or Eleonora Olivieri and Riccardo Dose in Italy will report on the progress of the competitors during the Just Dance World Cup.
Just Dance Unlimited is an additional on-demand subscription service available through Just Dance 2016, Just Dance 2017 & Just Dance 2018.
