Today Ubisoft, the French National Center of Cinema and the Moving Image (CNC), and the Palace of Versailles announce that Just Dance® 2024 Edition, the next installment of the #1 Music Video Game Franchise of All Time,* will bring the 18th century to life with a modern pop twist in an all new Just Dance map: A Night in the Château de Versailles.
The partnership between the CNC, Palace of Versailles and Ubisoft developed as part of the Cultural Olympiad program. As part of the lead up to the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Cultural Olympiad program is set up by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to promote dialogue between sport and culture across its territory.
In A Night in the Château de Versailles, players will bust a move throughout the world heritage site of the Palace of Versailles, immersing themselves in its beautiful gardens, the Latona Fountain, and the majestic Hall of Mirrors to a modern pop arrangement of two baroque musical pieces: Lully's “Marche Turque” (March for the Turkish Ceremony) and Rameau's “Les Sauvages (The Savages).”
All aspects of A Night in the Château de Versailles, including the music, dancing, costumes and locations, mix historical authenticity with upbeat pop elements that fans of the Just Dance franchise know and love to create an extravagant party experience. Developed and designed through the joint efforts of Ubisoft and the Palace of Versailles department, Château de Versailles Spectacles, and with support of the CNC, the choreography combines modern dance moves with classic court dances.
Players can immerse themselves in King Louis XIV’s court in A Night in the Château de Versailles, when Just Dance 2024 Edition launches on October 24 on Nintendo Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S.
