Before we get into the meat of this I'd like to ask a question -- has anyone here ever genuinely been helped by Wii Fit? And by that I mean either lost weight by using the balance board or been inspired to lose weight by other means whilst using Wii Fit?
It's hard for me to see it. The games on Wii Fit simply don't seem active enough for me personally. I still use my Wii Fit balance board regularly, but I use it only because I don't have a reliable set of scales. That's it. I can't remember the last time I tried to exercise using it.
But anyway -- the news itself. Nintendo has announced that Wii Fit U will be heading the Wii U in the first half of 2013. Hopefully that rough release date will translate across to Australia, but we're yet to hear confirmation. The Fit Meter, a fancy new pedometer type thing will also be part of the package.
