Just Dance 2 is the Wii's best-selling game published by any company other than Nintendo - so say its makers at Ubisoft.

The news puts Just Dance 2 ahead of Sega's Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, though behind a clutch of Nintendo's own best-sellers.

The ubiquitous Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort, Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, Wii Play, Mario Kart Wii, and New Super Mario Bros. Wii are certain to maintain comfortable positions in the Wii's all-time top ten, though Super Mario Galaxy and Super Smash Bros. Brawl would be looking over their shoulders as Just Dance 2 moves closer.

Ubisoft made the announcement as a Just Dance 2 booster pack hits shop shelves on July 15 in the UK, July 19 in North America, and July 21 in other European regions.

Just Dance Summer Party (known as Just Dance 2 Extra Songs in Europe) bundles together over 20 songs in a $30 (€30/£20) collection.

Those songs are already available individually via Just Dance 2's in-game store, where most of them cost 300 Wii Points each ($3/€3/£2).

Next in the series, Just Dance 3, is due the second week in October for Wii, Xbox Kinect and PlayStation Move.
