How do I download songs for Just Dance 2?
You can download songs in Just Dance 2 via the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel. This Channel can only be accessed when the Wii console is connected to the Internet. — Every song you download will automatically appear in the game’s playlist next time you start Just Dance 2.
* To download a free song, select Katy Perry’s new “Firework” song, which is a free download at this time.
* To download paid songs, you can buy them with Wii Points. Wii Points can be purchased in the Wii Shop Channel, or at your local game shop on a Wii Points Card.
This video will show you how to go from the Wii’s main menu to the WiiWare section of the Wii Shop Channel. At which point you can search for Just Dance 2. Renelly from Ubisoft explains it with more detail for you here:
Songs will take up between 200-300 blocks of internal Wii memory. This means that you cannot hold unlimited songs on your Wii, but you shouldn’t have to worry about that until you get a warning message saying you’re out of space.
The following tip does not apply to people with a new Nintendo Wii console or who don’t download much. But if you are planning on downloading a lot of songs for Just Dance 2, you may run out of space at some point. If you do, you can buy an SD Card at electronic stores. You can then save and later boot up the songs from the SD card when playing the game. Any song you put on an SD Card will still be saved in your playlist, it will just take about 10 seconds of loading to access the song before you can play it.
