UK: Just Dance 2020 sells more on Wii than PS4/Xbox One, new Mario & Sonic has best debut since 2011
Two more games debuted in the UK last week: Just Dance 2020 and Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020. There are interesting things to say about both.
As for Just Dance 2020, it debuted on the charts at #15. What’s noteworthy is the platform breakdown. Switch led the way with 55 percent of all Just Dance 2020 sales. Next up was Wii at 21 percent, followed by the PlayStation 4 at 14 percent and Xbox One at 10 percent. That means Just Dance 2020 sold more on Wii than Sony and Microsoft’s consoles.
As for Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020, it came in at #8. The title is the series’ most successful entry since Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games, a Wii title from 2011.

Just Dance 2020 found its way to Wii yesterday. We’re two console generations past that console between the Wii U and Switch, but Ubisoft was still bringing its series to the much-older Nintendo console. That’s finally stopping with Just Dance 2020 – Just Dance 2021 won’t be on Wii.
Just Dance 2020 could be the last game to ever be released on Wii. However, Ubisoft has said that it is unclear what plans other publishers have in mind.
The company provided GamesIndustry with the following statement:

Just Dance is still going strong on Wii. A decade later, Ubisoft is keeping the console alive with the series’ latest entry, Just Dance 2020.
Some might be surprised to hear that Wii is still getting a new game. The logic makes sense though, as Ubisoft told Polygon: “A lot of our players are children and families who continue to play on Wii.”
Ubisoft is also going out of its way to help the community. The company said it has “donated consoles and Just Dance games over the years to children’s hospitals where they use the game with patients to help with movement, exercise, rehabilitation and just for fun, bringing a smile to their faces.”
