Ubisoft might have dropped support for the Wii U, but it continues to release Just Dance games on Nintendo's original Wii device. Why is that? According to a Ubisoft representative who was contacted by Polygon recently, it's simply because there's still demand for the series on this platform:
“Just Dance 2020 is coming to the Wii because our audience wants it.”
Prior to this official statement, there's been a theory doing the rounds on social media for the past week, suggesting it's all to do with Ubisoft needing to supply hospitals:
While Ubisoft 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" there's still an audience outside of this area:
" A lot of our players are children and families who continue to play on Wii"
So, there you have it - Ubisoft is still releasing Just Dance on the Wii because people, in general, are still playing the game on the platform. The latest entry Just Dance 2020 arrives on the Switch and Wii this November.
