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:

Ubisoft is issuing a new update for Trials Rising. A number of adjustments and fixes have been implemented across the board for UI, the tracks, editor, and more.

Gods & Monsters was hit with a delay this week, which many saw coming due to a lack of news following the initial reveal at E3 2019 back in June. Instead of February, Ubisoft has pushed the game back into the next fiscal year starting April 2020.

After the delay was announced, the Gods & Monsters team shared a message for the fans. It reads in full:

During its E3 2019 press conference, Ubisoft closed out the show by announcing Gods & Monsters. The Zelda-esque action-adventure game was slated for February, but we’ve seen nothing of the game since. Unsurprisingly, Ubisoft has now announced a delay.

Gods & Monsters will now launch sometime during the next fiscal year, which starts on April 1, 2020. A more specific window beyond this has not yet been provided.

Regarding the delay of Gods & Monsters and other titles, Ubisoft explained: “we want our teams to have more development time to ensure that their respective innovations are perfectly implemented so as to deliver optimal experiences for players.”

Ubisoft is bringing Assassin’s Creed: The Rebel Collection to Switch in December. It’ll include two games: Assassin’s Creed IV and Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to get both games on a physical cartridge, you might be out of luck. The game’s Spanish boxart has a banner stating that Assassin’s Creed IV comes on the cartridge whereas Rogue is offered as a download code. We’d assume that this is the case worldwide, but we’ll let you know if any additional information comes in.
