Nintendo Wii Fit Plus earns NHS approval

Bookmark and Share

by Darren Allan

In a rather surprising move, the National Health Service has given its seal of approval to Nintendo’s new Wii Fit Plus game.

It’s a surprising development because traditionally the government has attacked video games for creating a nation of couch potato kids.

Obviously the Wii Fit is a bit different as it does encourage exercise, albeit of a variety that’s lacking in fresh air and still might give you square eyes.

The game box will carry the NHS’s Change4Life logo, the campaign which encourages people to embrace a healthy lifestyle in terms of diet and exercise. It’s certainly some good press the video gaming industry will welcome.

Wii Fit Plus is the sequel to the original massive selling Wii Fit, and it offers everything from strength training exercises to yoga. The game is released later this week.
