A report from Bloomberg today mentioned a new form of “game” in development at Nintendo. Wii-based diet software. The Bloomberg report, issued following recent strong performance of Nintendo’s Japanese stock, made mention of the new software in passing. Nintendo is developing diet-related and other forms of software for the Wii.
The report noted that such titles, specifically Brain Age for the DS, have been able to target new users who aren’t used to standard game controllers. IGN mentions Nintendo is expected to reveal more on the Wii in September, or possibly before that at the Games Convention on August 23. Xbox has Yourself Fitness, PS2 has EyeToy Kinetic, so Wii Exercise makes sense if you look at Nintendo’s popular non-games.
