Ubisoft develops game based on Swedish pop group’s music and dance routines
Game developer Ubisoft has created a new video game based on the music and performances of Swedish pop band ABBA called ABBA You Can Dance.
The game was developed the Nintendo Wii by Ubisoft Paris and will be released worldwide in November.
ABBA You Can Dance features 25 ABBA songs, including all of the group's biggest hits, such as Dancing Queen, Mamma Mia, Take a Chance on Me and Waterloo.
The game also features choreographed routines and environments inspired by the group's music videos and live performances.
"In the video game market, Ubisoft is the dancing king," said Geoffroy Sardin, EMEA chief marketing and sales officer at Ubisoft. "With ABBA You Can Dance, players can dance, they can jive, and they can have the time of their lives, all thanks to ABBA's music and Ubisoft's latest entertaining dance video game."
With ABBA You Can Dance, two players can sing along to lyrics that appear on-screen, while up to four players can simultaneously perform the dance moves.
The mini-musical mode lets players act out the key roles in a love story based on some of the group's classic songs.
ABBA You Can Dance also features original video clips and displays stories about the group.
