The biggest surprise of Nintendo’s E3 2007 press conference is, without a doubt, their new fitness, exercise, yoga, aerobic training game called “Wii Fit“. It will be released in Europe on April 25th for €90 and in America on May 19th for $90.
Wii Fit is super unique since the game comes bundled with a unique wireless balance board/scale that the user stands on. It then can detect shifts in your body weight and uses that in various mini-games.
But Wii Fit is much more than just a game, it records various statistics and you can put them against your friends or family over a measurement of time, to see who is burning off the most fat (er, body mass) and such.
From simple yoga style games to a DDR Lite stepping game to a mini-game in which you must headbutt soccer balls from going into the goal with your head, Nintendo’s Wii Fit seems to be a truly mass market training game that goes beyond the standard industry demographic and instead targets older players, especially women and mothers, who may want a fun way to exercise in their home using the Nintendo Wii.
Definitely a unique title, and totally unexpected. View the whole Wii Fit experience below starting with a trailer for the game and videos that lead up to the live demonstration..
