Nintendo has opened a website
and released screens of Aruite Wakaru Seikatsu Rhythm DS,
or Personal Trainer: Walking,
the walking trainer that includes a wireless pedometer and uses Miis. As it turns out, this game, which will probably
be somewhat of a flagship product for Nintendo, is being developed by Creatures, Inc.
, codevelopers of the Pokémon
games, as well as the first two Mother
games, and current home of Metroid
and Kid Icarus
composer Hirokazu "Hip" Tanaka (he's the president!)Personal Trainer
can record walking data and generate all kinds of stats for four participants, which it does at the end of the day. However, it only includes two pedometers. Extras will be available for 1,800 yen ($17.71).
