Just Dance 2 eighth 5m selling Wii game

Joins Wii Play etc on illustrious US list.

Ubisoft's Just Dance 2 has become the eighth Wii game to sell more than five million copies in the US, Nintendo has announced.

The impressive figure is twice as many as competing current-generation consoles combined, Nintendo said.

Just Dance 2 sold more than 120,000 units in July in the US.

The five million-selling Wii game in the US are:

  • Wii Play (13.04 million)
  • Mario Kart Wii (10.64 million)
  • New Super Mario Bros. Wii (8.36 million)
  • Wii Fit (8.17 million)
  • Wii Fit Plus (7.06 million)
  • Wii Sports Resort (6.45 million)
  • Super Smash Bros. Brawl (5.28 million)
  • Just Dance 2 (5.09 million)

On a global basis, Just Dance 2 is the best-selling third-party Wii game of all time. The franchise has sold 14 million units worldwide to date.

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. 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.
