WII Mamma Mia, here Wii go again

Back in 1975, we didn't have Wii. We had Abba, and we liked it (or: your parents might have). Now, 36 years later, Ubisoft brings back the Abba-love with ABBA You Can Dance on Wii.

Today, Ubisoft announced the upcoming release of a new video game based on the music and performances of Swedish supergroup ABBA. ABBA You Can Dance is developed exclusively for the Wii by Ubisoft Paris, the studio that revolutionized the genre with the Just Dance series, as well as Ubisoft Montpellier and Ubisoft Bucharest. ABBA You Can Dance will be released in North America on November 15, 2011.

ABBA created music that spanned generations and has inspired millions to sing and dance. ABBA You Can Dance features 26 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's professionally choreographed routines and unique environments were inspired by the group's music videos and live performances.

"In the video game market, Ubisoft is the dancing king," said Tony Key, U.S. senior vice president of sales and marketing 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, Ubisoft is making it possible for more people to join in on the fun of a dancing game. Up to four players can dance while two additional players can sing along to the lyrics on screen. A 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 includes original video clips and displays anecdotes about the group that even die-hard fans will find entertaining and informative.
