Just Dance To the Grave

It's the year of our lord 2019 and a game has launched on the Nintendo Wii. Despite Nintendo themselves discontinuing the console back in 2013, Ubisoft still releases Just Dance games on the Wii every year. This year is no different, and Just Dance 2020 is on the Wii again.

Perhaps most interesting, this may be the last Nintendo Wii game. In an interview with Telegraph, Ubisoft's executive director Alain Corre described Ubisoft, and specifically Just Dance 2020, as the last soldier standing.

 

I think we are the last soldier standing! We are the last game on the Wii and we are happy about that as there still a lot of fans wanting to play on it. Now we see they are going to the Switch and at the end of the year that Just Dance 2020 will be one of the best games on the Switch because there are more and more families playing on it, as it was in the Wii times.

While it's not a confirmation one way or the other, it certainly implies that the Wii audience is finally picking up Switches, and that Just Dance 2020 may be the last game on the Nintendo Wii. If so, it'd certainly be one for the history books, and that possibly makes the game more interesting than any of its songs. If nothing else, it's at least interesting that Ubisoft chose to keep going with the Wii, but ditched the Wii U as soon as possible. Poor thing never had a chance.

If you're not getting Just Dance 2020 on the Nintendo Wii, the game is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. A Google Stadia version will also be available at launch.

 

Do you think that Just Dance 2020 will really be the final Nintendo Wii game? Think Just Dance 2021 has a chance of showing up there? Maybe Nintendo themselves will be showing up for one more weird Nintendo Wii game? let us know in the comments below!
