See that game. Watch that screen. A new Wii title will let you play Dancing Queen.
Don’t feel blue like you always do; Ubisoft has a game for you. Abba: You Can Dance will allow players to dance (and presumably jive and have the time of their lives) to the greatest hits of the Swedish pop sensation. Right now, Ubisoft plans to release the game for the Wii around Christmas 2011.
Abba, a Swedish pop group active from 1972 to 1982, produced a collection of catchy hits including Super Trouper, Waterloo, and Take a Chance on Me during its heyday. More recently, the group has seen major success with Mamma Mia!, a jukebox musical adapted for both the stage and screen. Abba: You Can Dance does not have a specific track list yet, but given the game’s title, the inclusion of Dancing Queen seems like a safe bet. Ubisoft has also yet to price the title, although they have indicated it will be a “budget” purchase.
Given that a previous game, SingStar: Abba, made lots of money, money, money, another game is hardly a surprise. Still, it’s gratifying to see that this group, rapidly-approaching its 40th anniversary, is inspiring a whole new generation to dance and sing. Here we go again: My, my, how can you resist this game?
