Wii Fit Plus (Wii)

Game Profile

Wii Fit™ attracted millions of new players to the world of video games. Now Wii Fit Plus offers a range of new features and enhancements to help players reinvigorate their workouts, along with exercises and balance games designed to keep them fun.

Players will find a new dimension to the Wii Fit experience as they easily set their own customized workout routines or choose 20-, 30- or 40-minute workouts based on how much time they have available. Users will also be able to choose from specialized workout routines that focus on an individual's personal fitness goals or certain target areas. And with the addition of activities like Skateboarding and Rhythm Kung Fu, players will be using the Wii Balance Board™ accessory in a variety of new and fun ways.


  • Workouts combine the original Wii Fit activities and selections from 15 new activities and six new strength training and yoga exercises.
  • Users can input the amount of time they want to spend on their workouts or select an area for personal improvement, and Wii Fit Plus will suggest a number of diverse activities for them.
  • For the first time, users can mix and match which strength and yoga activities they prefer on a given day. The seamless exercise flows make it easier than ever for users to maintain their daily workout routines.
  • Users might be asked to run an obstacle course across a series of platforms, zoom across a beach on a Segway® x2 Personal Transporter or flap their arms to help their hilarious chicken-suited characters aim for targets.
  • The range of games and customization options will make players want to play every day. They'll be having so much fun that their workouts will seem to fly by in no time at all.
  • Players also can see estimates of calories burned and can even activate a feature that lets them weigh their dogs or cats.
  • Wii Fit Plus comes packaged with the Wii Balance Board accessory. For people who already own Wii Fit, the Wii Fit Plus disc will be available for purchase separately.

A worthwhile upgrade or just Nintendo milking its new cash cow?

Wii Fit's runaway success seemed to take even Nintendo by surprise given the number of times Satoru Iwata has publicly stated he never thought he could sell millions of bathroom scales as a new kind of fitness product. It's probably not much of a surprise...

From what I've seen in the trailer, am rather annouyed that it seems to be mostly the exact same content, with new layout and a few extra mini games. Yeh i realise it wasn't gonn abe too different, but having everything that WII Fit had, means i've paid for the same game twice, if i got wii fit plus, what do i do with my wii fit disc?



NintendoFreak said:

sorry i was thinking of youtube but i meant to say ebay...lol, u culd still sell it on youtube...i guess?



KevNash said:

yeh but its expected to come with the balance board, shouldn't have to spend that much twice again

I have seen the trailer for Wii Fit Plus on my Wii on the Nintendo Channel, and it isn`t that different but I have Wii Fit, so I am not sure what I should do with it. I think it is a.. well a tad bit better because I like the new feature where you can let your dog in the Wii Fit Plaza, and I also think the games are gunna be fun too, but that butt- boping- ball game? Not really! I think that`s a little.. odd for Wii Fit Plus but! I like this body-helping- thing too. Wii Fit has made ME improve on my running, if ya don`t beleive me, DON`T! But I``m telling ya it`s TRUE! I SWARE!



ds_lover59440 said:

I like the trailer but all I saw was the same EXACT game and a few extra mini games!! I mean, it has the EXACT SAME WII FIT PLAZA!! Except one JUST ONE!! Different feature! It isn`t that different to the regular original Wii Fit it also has the same excercises i mean really?! Why would they have that!? But the only difference to this whole "excercise" thing is that ya choose the thing yall wanna do, and you make some "list" of it! Hey, Kev Nash, I never knew it would come with the Wii Balance Board! WHAT?!?!?!?! THAT`S JUST BUYING THE SAME WHOLE GAME FOR $80 BUCKS IN AMERICA!!! AT COSTCO!!!!! (A STORE) HOW STUPID IS NINTENDO FOR HAVING THE SAME GAME WITH THE SAME BALANCE BOARD!?!? I GUESS MY MOM GUNNA HAVE TO BUY ANOTHER SCRATCH-FREE- GREEN PROTECTOR FOR THE HECK OF IT!!!



NintendoFreak said:

sorry for the hold up KevNash, i forgot all about this but anyway, i learnt that wii fit plus will be sold on its own and bundled with a balance board so it's ok. so if anyone bought wii fit alreddy they can just get wii fit plus...but what worries me is that all my achievements will be gone!
but i guess i can just do them all again...



Geo1AR said:

i'm looking forward to the skateboarding game

maybe the'll sell it with or without the balence board if u know what i mean?

Europe has now confirmed a release date for October 30, 2009. Australia gets the Wii Fit Plus release for October 15, 2009.



Mix said:

Got the update today. Love it. The best feature is the ability to make customized routines! The first Wii Fit really needed something like this.



Katernity said:

I traded in my original wii fit game disc at gamestop-only got $4 for it, but that meant I only had to pay $16 to upgrade to wii fit plus, and it was well worth it! the 15 or so new games are fantastic! If you like the original I highly recommend upgrading to wii fit plus.



ds_lover59440 said:

You`re right newlykate, I see alot of videos for Wii Fit Plus.
I am like, dying for it!! Mom says "Wait till Christmas."
And I`m like: "No!!!"
What can I do? Keep asking her?




I've been givin wii fit plus a good set of sessions today. Marvelous. It improves the original significantly and gives it that extra 50% more content. Also, the b.board mini games are generally pretty good and a decent challenge. I didn't know you could trade in the original wii fit disc w/o the b.board?

I've bn using the original wii fit very regularly since its release day, no pap. I'll continue this trend wii fit plus hopefully. The original's save file is adaptable onto this one. The originals data has merged with Plus'. Great!



WorkerB said:

We dig the Wii Fit and just upgraded to the Wii Fit Plus. My data transferred over and it is working fine. My wife's data transferred over but now her new data isn't posting to the data file. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there a fix that will solve this problem?
