The marketing machine of Nintendo revs up for Wii Fit U http://nintendoenthusiast.com/news/nintendo-employs-the-services-of-celebrity-trainer-kathy-kaehler-to-promote-wii-fit-u/?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter

Dat 3m in Q1 revving up!!!


True. I'm also expecting Nintendo to give a release date for the retail version of Wii Sports Club during the next Nintendo Direct, along with solid release dates of titles we already know to be released in the Spring.



Things that need to die in 2016: Defeatist attitudes of Nintendo fans

Around the Network

The whole fitness video game craze seems to be over. Zumba sold 6 million in 2010, the newest entries can't even scrape past 100k. The Nike game bombed on Kinect with 10k sold, and Your Shape 2013 only moved 40k units. The market was completely saturated. I don't see the Wii Fit U doing anything for the system.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

I think to make and kind of impact in that market you have to bring something new to the table. Wii Fit U does, but will it catch on? Time will tell.

They're expecting more in Q1, than the entire 2013.

I haven't been paying much attention to the game so I'm not sure if it does anything differently. Though I don't think there is a market for this kind of thing anymore.

Gamepad functionality? Because casuals are absolutely on board with the gamepad.

If anything Xbox Fitness is more innovative and appealing, with real workout programmes by famous trainers, that and being free for a year.
