The Nintendo Wii Still Lives In The Hearts Of Ubisoft And it is just dancing its old butt off.


The Nintendo Wii was a juggernaut after it launched selling over 100 million consoles during its lifetime. Released in 2006, the little underpowered console that could from Nintendo was seeing support from few companies in recent years, seeing that it is two generations old now.

I am pretty sure that Nintendo has long since ceased any software support for the system, including closing the Wii Shop Channel at the end of January of this year. As shocking as it may be, a game that the Wii helped launch was still being produced into 2019 with Just Dance 2019.

Even more shocking was seeing the Wii logo at Ubisoft’s lackluster E3 2019 presentation of Just Dance 2020. That’s right, the Nintendo Wii still has games being released for it. In a generation that included both the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3, the Wii remains on top in receiving support from third-party developers.

Just Dance 2020 will also be releasing on the Stadia(lol), Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the Switch as well this November. The Nintendo Wii release will be notable just for its sheer ridiculousness. Perhaps Ubisoft is just trying to show some fan service for those that have never upgraded away from the aged console, or perhaps they just need something to be remembered for.

I grew up on the Atari, Nintendo Entertainment System and the Sega Genesis. I started my love affair with gaming with Mario, as most kids do, and continued it with Dragon Warrior(Dragon Quest for those who don't know history). Some of my favorite games growing up were the simplest, with Adventure for the Atari 2600 being one of the games I had the most fun with. Still to this day I enjoy that game, and those duck looking dragons. Today I play a variety of games when my mind will let me, which comes in spurts. Right now I am playing a bit of Minecraft.
