Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Just Dance 2014 is the fifth game in the dance game series by Ubisoft, dropping the numerical title in favor of yearly releases similar to the FIFA games. It's just like any other Just Dance game where you follow the moves of a person dancing.

Original Name

  • Before the game had 2014 in it's title, It was going to be called Just Dance 5.
    • Additionally, on a website for a game conference, the game logo that was supposed to say Just Dance 2014 is shown as Just Dance 5 instead.
    • In Just Dance 2014’s servers, the game is referred to as Just Dance 5.[1][2]
    • This was also found in the DLC files, shown within the Storage Settings on Xbox 360 as JD5-DLC.

Demo

  • The game was originally supposed to have a demo, as there is an unused Extras square with the words Not available in demo version that can be found in the game files.

Unused Features

  • In the trailer for the game, a feature called Just Dance DJwas supposed to appear in the game, but was inexplicably removed before release.
  • In the game files for PlayStation 4, instructional images showing how to play with a DualShock controller can be found, along with the controller icon used in-game for scoring.
  • A parental code function was planned to be implemented in the game, but the idea was ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons.[3]

On The Floor

  • On the Floor was intended to return in Just Dance 2014 as a DLC, but the plan was ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons. This fact is proven by the following details:
    • In the Just Dance Now files, the menu icon has the glass effect that can be seen in all of the Just Dance 2014 and Just Dance Wii U menu icons (including the downloadable tracks for Just Dance 2014), despite the song not being featured in either game.
    • The .json file from the Just Dance Now servers is structured int the same way as those for Just Dance 2014 routines (including returning DLC’s), as the difficulty rating is in letters (in this case, "Easy") and a string called "NumCoach" can be found.

Robot Rock

  • Robot Rock by Daft Punk was originally meant to appear in the game. For whatever reason before the game was released, it was switched to Nitro Bot.
    • Other evidence shows that the codename for Nitro Bot is 'RobotRock' and the scrapped song matches the routine perfectly.

Run Dem Boyz

  • Run Dem Boyz by Anja featuring Sonja Blade was planned to be in the game, but the song was ultimately scrapped for unknown reasons, according to a post in Anja's official Facebook account where the now-deleted demo has Just Dance 2014 in the title.[8].

  • The Other Side was intended to have a Party Master Mode, which was cancelled before the game release. It can still be found in the game files.[4]

We Can't Stop

  • We Can't Stop by Miley Cyrus was released on November 26, 2013 in the shop by accident, but it got removed short after. It is now a DLC for Just Dance 2015, although the dancer's color scheme and the background are changed.
    • With the use of a hacked Wii, instead of We Can't Stop appearing in the shop, there is a song called Dummy; if the player downloaded it, they would only get an empty dancer square.
