Wii Fit gets $89.99 price tag, Nintendo World store pre-order bonus (Update)

8:58 AM on 04.15.2008 // Nick Chester

Hey Flabby McFlabtown! Nintendo have announced details for this Summer's launch of their new interactive fitness game, Wii Fit! The game will ship bundled with the Wii Balance Board peripheral, and will be available at the Nintendo World store in New York City starting on May 19 for $89.99. 

Nintendo have also revealed a special pre-order incentive program as well, offering the first 1,000 consumers who put down a $5 deposit a limited edition Wii Fit t-shirt. This one-of-a-thousand shirt features the image and reproduced autograph of Shigeru Miyamoto, so it's sure to be quite the collector's item. And what do you do when you lose all of that weight playing Wii Fit and the shirt no longer fits you? Use it as a dust rag. 

It should be noted that the press release (found after the jump) makes no mention of Wii Fit appearing at retail other than the Nintendo World store. I'm also no longer seeing a listing for it at, so my suspicions have been aroused. I've contacted Nintendo for clarification, so in the meantime, keep trying to do those one-handed push-ups in preparation of the game's release.

[Update: According to Nintendo Wii Fit will indeed be available everywhere Wii products are sold. The pre-order bonus, however, will be exclusive to the Nintendo World store. The listing for Wii Fit has been added to (as well as other retaliers), and confirms that the game will be available on the May 22, three days after its Nintendo World store launch.]

Nintendo News: Wii Fit to Keep Americans Moving at $89.99 MSRP

In anticipation of the U.S. launch of Wii Fit, the new interactive fitness game for the popular Wii system, Nintendo of America Inc. has announced pricing details for this groundbreaking release. Available at Nintendo World store starting on May 19, Wii Fit and the innovative Wii Balance Board accessory will be bundled and sold together at a suggested retail price of $89.99.

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.

Consumers in the New York area who pre-order Wii Fit from the Nintendo World store in Rockefeller Plaza will receive a special bonus item. From April 18-20, the first 1,000 consumers who place a $5 deposit for Wii Fit will receive a limited edition Wii Fit T-shirt featuring the image and reproduced autograph of legendary Nintendo video game designer Shigeru Miyamoto.

Just ran into my first 'suicide mole rat' in Fallout 4. I'm beginning to think this may not be a 100% accurate, meticulously researched recreation of life after the apocalypse.

Well I just played Undertale. It's a really unique game, but the difficulty in the beginning is a tad intense. Got clobbered once they started throwing three monsters at me at a time and lost a lot of progress... where's Toriel when I need her?

Just 1200 words left to go on my essays. Do I deserve a day off to play Just Cause 3 once I'm done? Yes.

Elite: Dangerous has some glaring issues, and can occasionally feel kinda bare bones, but I'll be damned if it isn't one of my favorite games in recent memory. Ships are fun to fly, trading is rewarding, and the sound design is absolutely brilliant.

Well, Destructoid. I did it. I jumped ahead.

Taking a break from Fallout 4 to try out Twitch Creative. Catch me painting Chun-Li while listening to an eclectic mix of Alex G, DJ Shadow, and Modest Mouse. [img][/img]

So far from first impressions of my Freedom Planet indie box its 100% more worth it than lootcrate. Whereas lootcrate you get a bunch of stuff you may or may not like, indie box gives you indie games, and stuff related to that game, such as the soundtrack

When one game is rated 7.4 and another 7.6, Are you telling me one game is 0.2 worse than the other. WHAT!?!

I think Microsoft takes the cake for worst console updates. The XBone UI is worse and the fucking controller had an update. What the hell has gaming become?

Well, that's a wrap for the Bloodborne DLC. I liked it. More thoughts and maybe spoilers in the comment section.

a rainy afternoon, and too sleepy for games. Time to go to the animal shelter and try not to fall asleep, surrounded by kittens.
