Ubisoft has just announced that they’ve secured the rights to “Gangnam Style” and will be releasing it as DLC for Just Dance 4 this November. Though a concrete date and pricing has not been revealed, they say it will be similar in price to previous Just Dance DLC songs. In case you’ve forgotten the unarguably catchy tune, here it is:
Psy apparently had this to say about the development: “‘Gangnam Style’ and Just Dance 4, I can’t wait to see all the YouTube videos.”
If you’ve turned on the TV, radio, or left your house to get groceries in the last month, you’ve probably heard the smash-hit South Korean song “Gangnam Style.” Rapper Psy’s official music video has close to 500 million views on YouTube and is the most-viewed video in the history of the website, with countless meme parodies and flash mob imitations popping up faster than you can say “one-hit wonder” (yes, there’s even a Mario version).
Just Dance 4 released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii on October 9th in North America, and October 2nd in Europe. A Wii U version is currently in development, and is scheduled to launch alongside the system on November 18th in North America and November 30th in Europe and Australia. Perhaps Ubisoft will offer download codes for “Gangnam Style” with the Wii U version as a buying incentive? It’s unlikely, but we can hope!
