Wii Fit shapes up for Japan

Nintendo to release the game that kicked off the exercise-game development craze before the holiday season.


Gamers in Japan will have absolutely no excuse for putting on the pounds this Christmas, as Wii Fit has been confirmed for release on December 1. The game will come bundled with the Wii Balance Board, as demonstrated by Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime at this year's E3.

The game will be priced at 8,800 yen (approx $75) for the bundle. A slew of similar titles has been announced by developers since Wii Fit was revealed, including Active Life for the Wii and Let's Yoga for the DS.

Wii Fit will feature four different exercise activities: aerobics, muscle conditioning, yoga, and balance. The Wii Balance Board also calculates each gamer's body mass, so they can track their progress over the weeks they play the game.

Neither a North American nor European release date has been announced for the title yet, although Nintendo has confirmed that Wii Fit will be coming to the regions.
