Many people have been wondering what Nintendo will do to get more Wii U consoles in consumers homes and this latest announcement just may be it. Currently Nintendo has announced that it will be giving away Wii Fit U completely free for a month. The offer starts on November 1st and all users will need to take advantage of the offer is a Wii balance board and a Wii U with an internet connection.
This makes a lot of business sense for Nintendo, as it wants those households that purchased the original Wii for Wii Fit to upgrade to Wii Fit U and a free month of a game is certainly a great way to do that. This promotion extends from November 1 to January 31, with the free month kicking in the first day the trial is downloaded. In order to keep the game, users will simply need to purchase a Fit meter if they already have the needed balance board, which retails by itself for $19.99.
You can check out full details in the Nintendo Direct above, but let us know what you think of this offer. Will you be trying it out?
