Forty tracks, popular genres, and availability on Xbox Kinect, PlayStation Move, and the Nintendo Wii, Just Dance 3 is heading for an October 11 release.

The Wii version will allow four players to take part at once, while the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 games will include variations on a sing-along mode.

Eleven of the game's 40 songs have been revealed, ranging from 2 Unlimited's "No Limit" to Katy Perry's "California Gurls" via the Duck Sauce hit "Barbra Streisand."

Also in the mix are "Pump It" (Black Eyed Peas), "Boogie Wonderland" (Groove Century), "What You Waiting For" (Gwen Stefani), "I Was Made For Lovin' You" (Kiss), "Giddy On Up" (Laura Bell Bundy), "Party Rock Anthem" (LMFAO), "Lollipop" (MIKA), and "Dynamite" (Taio Cruz).

Just Dance 3 has picked the same debut date as Electronic Arts' FIFA 12 and Microsoft Game Studios' Forza Motorsport 4, making for a varied week in gaming households.

Though the successful musical series has yet to pick up Lady Gaga's song "Just Dance," this third in the series has managed to recruit Katy Perry to its promotional cause for the game's first trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMOUlROUepY.
