Just Dance 2023 Edition provides players with a renewed Just Dance experience, introducing new features, modes and an updated look for a full, immersive experience.

Welcome to a new era of dance with Just Dance 2023 edition!

With the latest installment, Just Dance is entering a new era as a revamped dance-on-demand platform, providing players with brand-new features like online multiplayer and a redesigned user interface, plus free content updates on a regular basis.

Additionally, the Just Dance Controller App turns your smartphone into a controller with its phone-scoring technology, which allows up to six players to dance without any additional accessories, available for free on iOS and Android.

Ubisoft announced that the song “Top of the World” from Sony Pictures’ upcoming film Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile will be available in Just Dance 2023 Edition when it launches.

Following the film’s release in U.S. movie theaters on October 7, players can bring the adventure home for the holidays and enjoy following along to Lyle’s moves in Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile-inspired choreography!

"We are super excited about the collaboration with Just Dance. Lyle expresses himself through music; his movement and his voice are the only way that he knows how to communicate with the people around him. The idea of a 6'2 crocodile dancing his heart out on the rooftop being shared with the world and experienced firsthand is beyond exciting to us,” said directors/producers Will Speck and Josh Gordon. “We are so excited about this collaboration, and we hope that the moves inspire you to find your own voice and creativity. Now get up there, tie your scarf, and dance like a crocodile!”

Based on the best-selling book series by Bernard Waber, Sony Pictures’ Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, starring Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem, Constance Wu and Shawn Mendes, is a live-action/CGI musical comedy that brings this beloved character to a new, global audience.

When the Primm family (Wu. Scoot McNairy, Winslow Fegley) moves to New York City, their young son Josh struggles to adapt to his new school and new friends. All of that changes when he discovers Lyle - a singing crocodile (Mendes) who loves baths, caviar and great music - living in their attic of his new home. The two become fast friends, but when Lyle’s existence is threatened by evil neighbor Mr. Grumps (Brett Gelman), the Primms must band together with Lyle’s charismatic owner, Hector P. Valenti (Bardem), to show the world that family can come from the most unexpected places and there’s nothing wrong with a big singing crocodile with an even bigger personality.

Just Dance 2023 Edition brings the Lyle world to life through dance, music and connection!
