Wii Fit Plus revealed, new exercises and minigames

wii-fit-plus1At their conference today, Nintendo unveiled Wii Fit Plus. This ‘expansion’ adds 6 new strength and yoga activities, but the key is in matching and mixing the workouts. You can also omit the interludes between exercises so you get a continuous workout. Along with tracking the number of calories burned, this brings it closer to what EA Sports Active offers, but still focusing on  a more Eastern style of exercise rather than a cardio workout.

Of course, being Nintendo there are also 15 brand new Balance Board minigames included with Wii Fit Plus including a maths-oriented game and a Mario-style obstacle course.

Wii Fit Plus will launch sometime in Autumn and be available to purchase with and without the Balance Board.
