The Last Dance
Last week saw the release of a brand new game for Nintendo Wii, as Ubisoft dropped Just Dance 2020 on the seventh-gen console. Given the Wii’s incredible saturation of the market, particularly among families, it has remained a go-to for Holiday get-togethers long after the console generation moved on and, as such, releasing “party” titles for the platform is still a viable option to bring in a few bucks.
But it appears the party’s over, as Ubisoft has confirmed that this newest entry in the hip-shaking franchise will be its final release on the Wii platform. “We would like to clarify that Just Dance 2020 will be the last Ubisoft title to release on Wii,” said the publisher in a statement to GamesIndustry.biz. “We can’t speak on behalf of other publishers or for Nintendo.”
The Nintendo Wii launched in 2006 and would go on to shift over 101 million units, achieved through its novel use of motion controls and easily accessible titles such as Wii Sports, Wii Fit and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games. This is not to mention a run of great entries in popular Nintendo franchises such as Super Mario, Metroid and The Legend of Zelda.
Just Dance 2020 is available now on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and Wii.
