Just Dance 2 a record-breaker on Wii

Best-selling third-party Wii game ever.

Just Dance 2 is the best-selling third-party Wii game of all time, Ubisoft has announced.

The franchise 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," Ubisoft's US boss Laurent Detoc said.

"The game's outstanding performance solidifies the Just Dance brand as a pop culture phenomenon."

Just Dance 2's staying power has been remarkable. The game, which launched in October last year, was the tenth best-selling game in the US in June 2011. It was the 30th best-selling game in the UK last week.

Unfortunately Ubisoft failed to provide sales figures for Just Dance 2, but it now beats Sega's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, part of a series that sold 19 million copies worldwide as of April 2011.

In January Ubisoft said the Wii floor-filler had sold more than five million copies worldwide since launch. At the time the franchise had spent an impressive 45 weeks in the UK top 10.

Oli waved a glow stick at an 8/10 for Eurogamer's Just Dance 2 review.
