Wii Fit U

Best Buy is running a deal on the retail version of Wii Fit U. Purchase the game now for $35, and you’ll save $15 in the process. You’ll also get a Fit Meter for your troubles!

Nintendo has released a new update for Wii Fit U, bringing the game up to version 1.3.0.

The new patch adds a whole bunch of things. Players can now experience an additional 12 Walking Challenge and 12 Climbing Challenge courses, features, and more.

You can find the official Miiverse update message and full update notes below.

A pair of first-party 3DS titles are on sale at both Amazon and Best Buy. You can pick up Mario Kart 7 (Amazon, Best Buy) and Animal Crossing: New Leaf (Amazon, Best Buy) for $5 off each.

Also worth mentioning, Amazon has the Wii Fit U bundle available for $64.59. This comes with the game, Balance Board, and Fit Meter.

Thanks to Jake for the tip.

It’s a double dose of Nintendo title updates tonight. In addition to Steel Diver: Sub Wars, Wii Fit U has received a new patch of its own.

Here’s what’s new in version 1.2.0:

  • Users that have a Fit Meter registered can now access their own data immediately after starting Wii Fit U from the Fit Meter transfer screen.
  • Users can now post their Fit Meter activity screen to Miiverse after starting Miiverse from the Home Menu.
  • At the Piggy Bank screen, after transitioning from the Fit Meter, users can now display the consumed calorie value that was just transferred.
  • An error was resolved that could cause miscalculation of “Fit Meter Challenge” data if it was transferred from the Fit Meter at the exact time the date changes.


Wii Fit U testimonials

These Wii Fit U testimonials have been on the eShop for a few weeks, and I’ve been meaning to upload them here. They’re not mind-blowing or anything, but they’re little interesting promos Nintendo put together for the game.


The ever-reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar” has come through with one piece of noteworthy data.

Last month, Wii Fit U is said to have sold under 20,000 copies. Those sales were obtained in a little less than a month.

Wii Fit U is selling at an incredibly slower rate than Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, though that was to be expected. Wii U has a much lower installed base than its predecessor, for one thing. Also keep in mind that Nintendo has been offering the title on the eShop, and allowed console owners to purchase the digital version for just $20 by syncing their Fit Meters.


A strange “trailer” for Nintendo to post, but uh… enjoy:


REDMOND, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Time is running out for free fitness. Jan. 31 is the last day for Wii U owners who also have a Wii Balance Board to take advantage of Nintendo’s free trial offer of Wii Fit U. Anyone who downloads the trial of the game from the Nintendo eShop on or before Jan. 31 will get a full month to try out the game from the date that it’s first played.

Those who download the trial and want to keep using the software indefinitely can purchase a Fit Meter and sync it to the game. Fit Meter accessories are available at a suggested retail price of $19.99 each.

Other ways to purchase and play the game are as follows:
