Wii Fit U to feature 77 activities

Fitness game coming to US in the first quarter of 2013

Wii Fit U wasn't mentioned during Nintendo Direct Europe but Nintendo America's Cory Olcsvary showcased the game during the US broadcast.

The big news: Wii Fit U will be released in the US during the first quarter of 2013 (between January and March) and the package will feature 77 different activities.

The activities are split between eight fitness routines, including all-new category Dance. So Wii Fit U will be looking to offer something to those who want to keep in shape using the Balance Board and those who like dance games such as Just Dance 4.

There was a dancing mini-game in the original Wii Fit in which you stepped on and off the board in time with the music. However, seeing as Dance is now a routine, we'd expect many more games.

Other activities include Aerobic, Strength Training, Yoga and other activities from Wii Fit Plus. We also saw a new squash mini-game.

Wii Fit U also comes with Fit Meter pedometer so you can keep up the fitness routine even when you leave the house.

There is no word on a Wii Fit U UK release date.

    I guess there'll also be a bundle for people who haven't got a Balance Board,like me when they release it.
    I must admit 77 activities,is quite a few more than I was expecting,so I might keep an eye out for this.

    They should let you use your 3DS instead of the pedometer

    I love the look of the Squash and Flamenco dance activities. I already own the original WiiFit, but didn't upgrade to Plus. Thanks to my foresight, WiiFit U will be a much better experience for me and my family with all its new content.

    Why? The pedometer looks like it'll be the same size as a Pokewalker from Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSiliver; much samller than a 3DS. Not to mention, not everyone who is likely to get his game will have a 3DS. It's better to just have a pedometer packed in.

    I didn't say "They should make you buy a 3DS and not include a pedometer', can you read?

    I simply mean, as someone who has a 3DS and carries it everywhere to get coins and streetpasses, I don't want to have to carry something else, when what I am carrying already has a pedometer and can connect to the WiiU.

    They will obviously still include a pedometer, just give people like me the option to use a 3DS instead.
