The routine is performed by a dance crew of all males. All of the coaches are wearing tuxedos, with the only difference being the color of their shoes, bow ties, hairstyles, and the inside of their blazers.
Moving on from this and the whole thing has also been given a nice facelift, with streamlined menus that feel better to navigate than previous entries, plus an overhauled graphical style that, while still a bit strange-looking, is a definite improvement on the eerie-looking dancers from years gone by.
There's a new online mode, too, which allows you to battle against five other players (just make sure you're not wiggling your Joy-Con around and cheating the system), and Enter The DanceVerses, a narrative-driven mode, gives you a reason to play songs you might otherwise skip by telling a story of dance heroes and villains between tracks that will be getting added to as the months pass by.
The only dance game I've ever played was Zumba Fitness: Dance Party on Wii U, and I just couldn't get into it. I want to mimic the dancers' movements AS I SEE THEM ON THE SCREEN. If an arm goes out to the right on my screen, I'm going to want to extend my right arm to match the side of the screen that the action is on, not extend my left arm to mirror what I see. The whole mirroring thing is just confusing to my brain. Dance games need to have either an option to have left movements register as right movements and vice-versa or an option to have the dancers facing away from the player.
Progression and Rewards: Players can move up in the ranks with the brand-new progression system, allowing them to earn in-game points for each completed dance. These points will go toward unlocking new rewards, such as customizable dancer cards for the first time in Just Dance. Players can personalize their dancer card to fit their own personality by modifying the avatar, background, border, name badge, and alias. They can also redeem points to unlock emote stickers, which can be used to communicate with other players in Online Groups.
