In addition, the Just Dance series has topped the Wii charts for 12 of the last 13 months.
Lifetime sales of the Just Dance series stand at over 17m worldwide.
Just Dance is a blockbuster brand for Ubisoft,” Ubisoft’s UK MD Rob Cooper stated. The game’s mainstream appeal has helped broaden the appeal of video games to the mass market.
Ubisoft anticipates that the strong sales trend for Just Dance 3 will continue to grow as we head into the holiday season. The social aspect of the game makes it the perfect game to play during the holidays with friends and family.”
