Requiring only one Wii Remote per player, up to four people can break it down at a time, as they follow on-screen choreographed moves set to classic dance tracks, covering a wide variety of musical genres and bringing everyone to the dance floor. Whether it's a group of 15 year-old girls who just want to have fun, a high school reunion dance from the class of '92 needing to pump up the jam, or Generation X who truly believe the groove is in the heart, Just Dance is the ultimate dance game for everyone.

Just Dance, which launched in mid-November 2009, has sold through more than two million units worldwide, becoming the fastest-selling new intellectual property from a third-party publisher on Wii. Developed by Ubisoft Paris, Just Dance is the first real music video game in which up to four people can break it down at a time, as they follow on-screen choreographed moves set to classic dance tracks, entertaining spectators along the way. Just Dance features an incredible track list with more than 30 famous tunes from the ’60s to today, including songs by Katy Perry, MC Hammer and the Spice Girls.

Just Dance has consistently danced into the top of the video game charts in recent months, spending time in the top ten in most European and North American territories. According to NPD data, Just Dance is the best-selling music/rhythm game for Wii™ in the U.S. from December 2009 through February 2010, and is on track to maintain its sales momentum for the month of March 2010. The title hit No. 1 and remained there for several weeks in the very competitive U.K. market, beating well-established hardcore video game franchises.

“The consumer response to Just Dance has been overwhelming,” said Tony Key, senior vice president sales and marketing at Ubisoft, U.S. “With Just Dance’s success we’ve seen a renewal of the music video game genre, as this is truly a game that is accessible and enjoyable for everyone.”
