To celebrate the launch of Wii Fit, Nintendo held an interactive release party for the public in the southwest corner of New York's Central Park, near the Merchants' Gate. "We're looking for everyone to 'get on board' and get excited about their fitness," said celebrity trainer Ashley Borden, who will be on hand to do personal Wii Fit demos and training. Cammie Dunaway, executive vice president, Sales and Marketing for Nintendo of America, presents a check for $25,000 to Dr. Johnny Lee of the American Heart Association at the Wii Fit launch event in Central Park on May 19, 2008. Nintendo donated $5 to the AHA for every person who tried Wii Fit on launch day.
With Wii Fit finally released in America means that millions of people around the world will be jumping up and down in their living rooms like never before. Nintendo's latest hit is set to be one of the biggest and we're sure the fantastic sales figures will surge through out the year bringing Nintendo another record year of profits.
Naturally we've bagged ourselves a copy of Wii Fit during the European launch, for those of you that haven't yet decided to buy the game we'll be posting our final review of the product by the end of the week.
