Just Dance Wii 2 (also known as ジャストダンスWii 2) is the second game in the Japanese series following Just Dance Wii. This game is built in the style of Just Dance 3, but lacks some of its features such as unlockable songs and the shop. Like in Just Dance Wii, song lyrics are highlighted light blue when a male is singing and light pink when a female is singing, or if both a male and a female are singing. This game also includes Breakdown Mode, where the player can skip back and forth through a song in order to learn it better.
Although this game is based on Just Dance 3, it lacks of some of its features:
There is no online store.
The specials menu has been replaced by the Training menu.
However, one can play shorter versions or sort the songs, like in Just Dance 2.
In Breakdown Mode, it's not possible to earn points because the word "TUTORIAL" is in the star bar; although, X, OK, GOOD and PERFECT still appear if you dance.
This is the only game to feature difficulty and effort as 3+.
Even though the game takes the style of Just Dance 3, the pictograms are in the style of Just Dance 4.
Also, the Gold Move warning effect takes the style of Just Dance 3 while the sound effect and after-shine effect take the style of Just Dance 4.
This was also the case for the Beta version of Just Dance 4.
For some unknown reasons, Daddy Cool was found in the game's credits, despite it not being in the game, due to the fact that the song was only used for a French contest.
Ubisoft did not change conditions for getting medals, so if the game is hacked, and the operating language is switched to English, you can see that some of the medals and their directions for getting them for them have not been changed.
For example, one of the medals needs Boogie Wonderland to be danced to get it, but the song doesn't appear in the game.
To play this on an American or European Wii, You need a disc called Freeloader. It allows you to play region-locked games on your Wii. It has the ability to detect other languages installed on foreign discs. It is becoming rare so to buy it, go here
The star sound during the score screen is different than it is in Just Dance 3.
During duet and dance crew songs a colored arrow will come up when pressing the A button to remind the player which coach they chose.
If the player continues the song after pausing during normal gameplay or if the player selects a section after pausing in Breakdown Mode, it'll go right into the countdown starting with 4. The countdown speed depends on the song's BPM.
The countdown was also used in Just Dance 4 but with the countdown starts at 3.
