Just Dance 2017 is the first Western game to be announced for NX

Also coming to other consoles and PC this year.

Ubisoft has announced Just Dance 2017 is coming to NX - making it the first game announcement for Nintendo's new yet-to-be-seen system by a Western publisher.

It joins the likes of the new Legend of Zelda and Dragon Quest XI as games we know that are on the way to the NX.

Just Dance 2017 also breaks new ground for the franchise by also coming digitally to PC for the first time, as well as PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Wii and Wii U this October.

As well as the return of familiar modes like the Just Dance Unlimited on-demand service, a fitness mode and an updated Just Dance Controller app - allowing you to play with a smartphone instead of a camera - there's also the addition of Just Dance Machine, a new mode that has you perform all kinds of different dances to "help your alien captors return home", according to Ubisoft. Sounds a bit Space Channel 5 to us.
