We Dance coming to the Wii (UK Only)

Nordic Games makes inspired dance move with introduction of We Dance.

Publisher expands its ‘We’ series of games

Thursday 31st March 2011: Nordic Games Publishing, the company behind the successful We Sing range of Wii games, has announced the first extension to its ‘We’ brand with the introduction of We Dance, a new dancing game exclusive to Wii.

Unlike other dancing games, We Dance utilises three different styles of play – using the Wii Remote, using Nordic Games’ dance mat (the ‘Star Mat’), or distinctively a combination of both – each offering varying levels of difficulty.

“The market is primed for the release of We Dance, and it sits perfectly alongside our family of We Sing games,” said Nik Blower, sales and marketing director, Nordic Games. “We Dance is a great party and family gaming experience, accessible to people of all ages and abilities.”

We Dance will launch in May with 40 licensed tracks spanning four decades of music; from rock to pop, rap to disco and hip hop to drum ‘n’ bass, there is something for everyone. The majority of tracks include the original videos to further add to the experience.

For authenticity, all dance steps have been fully choreographed by professional dancers helping make We Dance a more rewarding and energetic experience.
“Nordic Games is fast becoming the home of music entertainment on the Wii, and this is a significant extension to our range,” added Blower.

We Dance is also sponsoring the games industry’s annual awards ceremony, the MCV Awards on 7th April at The Brewery in London.

We Dance will be available to buy with one or two’ Star Mats’, or as a solus game. As with We Sing games, We Dance was developed by Le Cortex alongside Wired Productions.

More information, including a full list of features and tracklist will be announced in coming weeks.

We Dance will be available on Wii in May.

Jeremy’s love of gaming, especially Nintendo started in the late 80′s when his parents bought him and his older brother an NES. Many hours were spent playing Mario and Duck Hunt. Eventually Jeremy graduated to bigger and better games and systems, like the SNES, GC, Wii, 3DS, and finally to the Wii U. Ask him what the defining moment of his childhood gaming was and he’ll answer, “the day I beat Zelda 2.” To this day that game holds a special place in his heart. His favorite types of games are platformers.

Jeremy started blogging for NintendoFuse in October 2010. He started off as a lurker on the forums who won a free copy of And Yet It Moves on WiiWare. From there he realized he liked the forums and the site and wanted to remain a part of it. He was brought on board shortly thereafter and has helped post news and reviews for the past couple of years. Currently Jeremy has taken a step back to focus on family and school. He assists in minor back-end site maintenance from time to time.
