The developers of Just Dance 4 had to create a new platform-specific engine to port the game to the Wii U GamePad. The new engine is called the Just Dance 4 Wii U engine . The Wii U GamePad and the console are plugged into a television to make up a new screen that is constantly refreshing, similar to a living room screen in the PlayStation 3 version. However, the studio has been careful to ensure that the Wii U GamePad does not change the gameplay of the game, so it is possible to choose either a single player or multi-player mode, and play the game as if it were a traditional console game.
The Wii U GamePad has a number of new features specifically designed to accommodate the GamePad, such as a motion sensor and Liftscreen. The motion sensor can be used in the Wii U version to use the GamePad as a controller for the game. A friend can also play Just Dance 4 with the GamePad, and players can compete against each other in multiplayer and Karaoke Quest Mode.
The Wii U version of Just Dance 4 will also have an additional mode, called Karaoke Quest, which is a rhythm game mode where players are put into a room with multiple people. Each person has a microphone, and the game requires the players to mix the microphone to the beat of the music. The Wii U GamePad has a total of four microphones, with the GamePad being used to mix two of them. The Wii U version also has the option for players to sync their GamePad to other Wi-Fi enabled TV devices, as well as allowing players to see the score of the other players in the room, as well as using the GamePad to track the number of times the players hit the GamePad during the game.
The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions have the same modes and features as the Wii U version, with the PS3 version also having a Karaoke Quest mode, as well as the ability to sync the GamePad to your TV. The PS3 version also lets players use the GamePad to track the number of times they hit the GamePad during the game.
