Wii Fit U to include 77 training events, coming 2013

Flamenco!

If you’re growing impatient over the release of fitness game Wii Fit U, know that it’s still on track for a 2013 release. Satoru Iwata gave the game a quick blurb in this morning’s Nintendo Direct presentation to let us know that it’s still in the works.

The only real news to come out of his short segment is that there will be 77 different training events included in Wii Fit U. The presentation video showed rowing, sledding and even flamenco dancing. I want to try the latter to see my Mii in a dress.

It also showed the included pedometer, the Fit Meter, in use. This little device will track your steps and calories burned, and will sync with the Wii U’s GamePad to track your fitness progress.
