Just Dance 2 has sold through more than five million units worldwide for the Wii. Launched October 12, 2010 in North America and October 14, 2010 in Europe, Middle East and Asia, Just Dance 2 has held a prime spot in the top ten video game sales charts in both the U.S. and Europe.
Ubisoft’s Wii-exclusive Just Dance franchise features several titles including Just Dance, Just Dance 2 and Just Dance Kids. To date, the combined franchise has sold more than an estimated ten million units worldwide, and the Just Dance brand was the third biggest franchise worldwide in 2010.
The Just Dance franchise has revitalized the video game music category with consumers worldwide joining the dance movement. Players of all ages are enjoying the social and physical benefits of playing Just Dance 2 as it’s truly a game that is accessible and enjoyable for everyone, said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft North America.
The strong performance of Just Dance 2 is a perfect example of the potential that can be achieved by an independent publisher like Ubisoft in delivering irresistible content for the Wii system, said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime.
Just Dance 2 encourages up to four players (and up to eight players via the dance battle mode) to mirror the dance choreography featured in the game for more than 40 dance tracks across a wide range of musical genres, including pop, R&B, disco, funk, rock, world music and more. Just Dance 2 game owners can download additional songs to dance to in the game via the Wii Shop Channel on the Wii system, including Katy Perry’s blockbuster hit song Firework for free.
