Nintendo announced a slew of releases today, including the launch of Wii Fit Plus and new colors for the DSi.
Starting Sept. 13, Nintendo
will sell white and pink versions of the DSi
system, in addition to the blue and black already out there. Perhaps
they figured more girls would be likely to buy if they had pink?
Unclear, but just like the original colors, the two new hues will have
two cameras and interactive options allowing users to "create and
manipulate pictures or sound in fun and creative ways." No extra charge
for pink or white - just like the original colors, the suggested retail
price will remain $169.99.
Not to channel the spirit of Billy Mays, but wait! There's more!Wii
Fit Plus launches Oct. 4 in North America. It has a bunch of new
exercises, yoga activities and balance games. Plus, users now will be
able to customize their workouts to target specific body areas or to
last a certain amount of time.
Wii Fit will cease to be sold at
that time, and Wii Fit Plus will be bundled for sale with the Wii
Balance Board; for a total price of $99.99. If you already have Wii
Fit, don't worry - you can get just the disc for Plus for $19.99.
this holiday season - no specific date mentioned - the Wii Remote and
Wii Motion Plus also will be available in black for the first time. And
the black nunchuk controller will be available for individual purchase.
No price was quoted for either.
