WiiThe original Wii is the console that just won’t die, at least for so-called “casual gamers.”

Ubisoft just revealed at E3 that Just Dance 2018 will be available Oct. 24 for all major consoles. That officially includes Nintendo’s venerable motion-control system, as well as its less popular successor, the Wii U, and the brand-new Switch, as well as Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 and PS3.

The living room penetration that made the Wii so successful apparently is keeping it in use, and evidently profitable for publishers, to this day.

The newest installment of Ubisoft’s rhythm game series incorporates tunes from Bruno Mars, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj, Bebe Rexha, Lil Wayne, Shakira, Maluma and more, including K-Pop from Hyuna and Japanese virtual idol Hatsune Miku.

So, grab your Wiimote and … shake it, I guess?

When they say “all consoles,” they mean all consoles …
