Wii Balance Board

Nintendo Downloads 4/6/09

April 6th, 2009

To celebrate the release of the new Nintendo DSi most of the available downloads this week are part of Nintendo’s new DSiWare. Granted, everyone should probably download the Nintendo DSi Browser since it is 0 points. It seems as though all of the games are an extension of a previous game, or just light examples of what the DSi could do. I think that the best choice out of all the products has to be WarioWare Snapped! The game is always short spurts of fun, no matter which Nintendo system it is on.

Looking at the Wii’s side, we have EQUILBRIO in the WiiWare and Uncharted Waters: New Horizons on the Virtual Console. EQUILBRIO is yet another product that can use the Balance Board, which is great for anybody who thought that the Balance Board wouldn’t get much love. I’m interested in the Uncharted Waters: New Horizons because there were some positive reviews on GameFAQs. Personally, I’ve never heard of the game and I appreciate the fact that the Virtual Console puts these rare games.

More information after the jump.

Wii Fit Selling For $89.99

Wii Fit

This morning Nintendo released info on the upcoming Wii Fit game (if you can call it that), scheduled to hit the streets on May 19. Apparently the game and the Wii Balance Board will be bundled together for a whopping $89.99. Those of you living in the New York City area can head down to the Nintendo World Store in Rockefeller Plaza between April 18-20 and receive a special bonus item upon reserving the game: a limited edition Wii Fit T-shirt featuring the image and reproduced autograph of legendary Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto. Better be quick though, as only the first 1,000 will be eligable for the shirt.

Boasting a dynamic mix of more than 40 yoga, aerobics, strength training and balance activities, Wii Fit provides consumers with a fun, easy and affordable way to incorporate exercise into their daily routines. Using the included wireless Wii Balance Board accessory, every member of the household can step up and stay active, setting individual fitness goals and tracking their progress over time.
