In this latest installment of Iwata Asks, Nintendo’s CEO interviews the folks at Panasonic and discusses how the Wii U’s Fit Meter came about, along with some of the challenges its team faced during the sensor’s development process.
For those of you who don’t know, Wii Fit U is the sequel to Nintendo’s widely popular fitness game. If you’re looking to knock off a few of those pounds you put on this holiday season, a month-long free trial of the game can be downloaded from the eShop. In order to take advantage of this freebie, you’ll need a balance board from the original Wii Fit. If you didn’t pick up Nintendo’s take on the bathroom scale, you can try your luck with eBay and Craigslist or just wait until the game’s January 10th release date.
Sadly, there’s no video for this one, but I encourage you to read the interview. It’s really interesting and pretty funny as well.
