Today, Ubisoft revealed a new original song, CHIWAWA, that will appear in Just Dance 2016, the latest instalment in the best-selling music game franchise of all time.
CHIWAWA is an original song created by the Just Dance team in collaboration with soundtrack composer Tom Salta and Japanese singer Reni Mimura.
“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,” said Tom Salta, Composer, Producer and Songwriter.
“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,” added Reni Mimura, Japanese Artist and Singer.
Chiwawa is the surprising story of a girl who mistakenly steps on her pet Chihuahua. Its in-game adaptation is an energetic and silly choreography combined with cute and crazy visual elements linked to the kawaii culture. From flashy colours and flat cats on photocopiers, to ridiculous jumping hot dogs, Chiwawa offers a unique and unforgettable experience for Just Dance players.
“Chiwawa is a fun J-pop song that once you hear, you’ll never forget,” said Alkis Argyriadis, Creative Director at Ubisoft Paris. “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
This year’s version will release on October 23rd for both Xbox and PlayStation consoles as well as Wii U.
