Miyamoto Wants You Outside. Now!
Posted by Sammy Barker
Talking with the pretentious Times newspaper, video gaming "Zeus" Miyamoto-san spoke of how "weight-em-down" (please make this phrase catch on) Wii Fit has caused a social revolution in Japan.
The Nintendo veteran hopes that the game will do the same thing in the UK and Europe. I just hope the success of the game means I'll see less fat people.
"In Japanese households suddenly new conversations are springing up between fathers and mothers, fathers and daughters, talking about Wii Fit," he enthused. "We would love that to happen in Britain."
"Spending too long, staying in and playing any video game is not good," he admitted. "I always tell my children to get out on a sunny day and I, myself, went jogging in Central Park yesterday. But I do my stretching on Wii Fit. They work together."
The game is pretty much sold-out everywhere at this moment in time and we expect it to stay this way for a while to come. Hell if the concept didn't grab you, maybe those pictures of Sarah Harding endorsing it did.
Either way we expect Wii Fit to be the biggest game this year. We really did just say that and we are aware that at 00:00AM tonight something pretty big happens.
We still reckon Wii Fit will be the biggest game of the year.
I'm off outside now. Miyamoto will tell me off otherwise.
