After conquering the original Wii, Nintendo's Wii Fit makes a return to the
upcoming Wii U console in Wii Fit U. The title is set to
feature more than 20 new activities and exercises that take advantage of the
features of both the GamePad and the Wii Balance Board. If you’re working out
alone, you can use the GamePad screen to play without a TV screen, or use it to
check out your personal stats. Even better, the game makes use of yet another
accessory, the new Fit Meter, to take a comprehensive record of your activities,
such as the number of steps you’ve taken or elevation climbed, wherever you go.
The Fit Meter, which looks similar to Sega's old VMU for the Dreamcast
(remember that?) can also be synced with the Wii U console to show how much
activity you’ve done throughout the day. Fans of the original game will be glad
to know most of the Yoga and Strength exercises are back, and that you can
transfer your previous save data here to pick up right where you left off.
With all these special features, Wii Fit U just might
revolutionize how people exercise this holiday where it’s set to launch right
along with the console.
