The second entry in Ubisoft's massively successful Just Dance
series is the all-time best-selling Wii game not published by Nintendo itself.
That's according to a statement released by Ubisoft Thursday. While exact sales figures were not provided for Just Dance 2
, the company did say that the franchise -- which includes both main titles and the spin-off Just Dance Kids
, all of them exclusive to the Wii -- has sold 14 million units worldwide to date.
"Ubisoft is incredibly proud of the monumental success Just Dance 2
has had the past nine months," said Ubisoft's North American president Laurent Detoc. "The game’s outstanding performance solidifies the Just Dance
brand as a pop culture phenomenon."
While exact figures are not available, most estimates place Sega's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games
at the former top slot for third-party titles. That series sold 19 million copies
worldwide as of April.
The company is set to release Just Dance Summer Party
next week on the Wii, and a multi-platform Just Dance 3
-- which includes support for Microsoft's Kinect and Sony's Move controllers -- this October.
Just Dance 2
was the tenth best-selling game in the United States last month, according to the NPD
