Wii Fit U Gets U.S. Retail Release on January 10

Posted on January 3, 2014 AT 06:36am

Nintendo has announced that Wii Fit U will be hitting retail stores in the U.S. on January 10.

The game was previously released digitally in the U.S. and Europe on November 1, 2013, and received a retail release in Europe on December 13, 2013. A one-month free trial of the game is available from the Wii U eShop until January 31, requiring a balance board to play. Players can convert this trial into the full retail version of the game by purchasing and syncing a Wii Fit Meter, which is available now for $19.99.

Wii Fit U is a great option for busy moms and families who want to stay active in the comfort of their own homes–which is perfect during the cold winter months,” Nintendo of America marketing executive Scott Moffitt said.

The U.S. retail bundle includes a copy of Wii Fit U, a Wii Balance Board, and the Wii Fit Meter accessory for $89.99. If you already own the Balance Board, you can purchase a copy of Wii Fit U and the Wii Fit Meter for $49.99.

An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream.
