LOS ANGELES — Ubisoft showed off its Just Dance 2014 at the Electronic Entertainment Expo, and while it’s a multiplatform affair, it has something special for players of the Nintendo Wii U: the capability to recognize up to six players at once.

The new game is the sequel to last year’s Just Dance 4 and is part of a series that has become the No. 1 dance franchise of all time, with more than 40 million games sold to date. It’s biggest platform was Nintendo’s Wii, so the Wii U version will likely be highly anticipated. It will also play on the Xbox One, the PlayStation 4, and other platforms.

Last year, Just Dance 4 was the fifth largest-selling video game on all platforms. In this version, you will see 40 new tracks, such as “Pound the Alarm” by Nicki Minaj and “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor. One new feature is World Dance Floor, an online multiplayer mode where players join a virtual crew with other fans.

Here’s our video of Just Dance 2014 on the Wii U.
