So it'll cost more and you won't be able to buy Wii Fit? Or will the first game come in a disc-only SKU?

It seems to be the former. A bit smart that NOA sees Wii Fit Plus as an expansion and not a sequel. Kinda annoying they're charging more for the Wii Fit bundle, though.

I had two of these. Got rid of 'em just a couple of weeks ago. Untitled
I BEAT the living HELL out of them, drove them off 2'+ vertical drops, raced them on off-road bike trails, the works. If the game is anywhere near as fun as these are in the real world, it'll be worth the price of admission right there.

@brandonbwii: Unless you can carry over your stats/save into this from the original Wii Fit, I wouldn't consider it an expansion.

The Rock Band track packs (on 360 and PS3 at least) are expansions because you can import them onto your harddrive. Swapping discs? Nah.

OMG WOW, YOU’VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME NINTENDO?! ONLY $20 FOR WII FIT PLUS ALONE?! Now I’ve got a better chance of saving money for it now; since it’s not the usual $50 retail price like Wii games origonally are!! ;)

So Wii Fit Plus will SOON BE MINE; come October!! :D

You’ve just made my day Nintendo; & this is a fantastic way to start the month of September!! :D

If the price is as low in Europe as it is in the US, I'll definitely be buying the stand-alone release

All saves will be tranferable! I think that Nintendo Power announced that! For $20! OMG, I need to preorder becuase we all know the first 15 milion people who bought the original will buy the PLUS!

I am pretty sure Wii Fit Plus has all the exercises the original Wii Fit had, plus more, so if you don't have the first one, you don't really need it. I am glad the disc is only $20, I will be picking it up for sure.

So our data will be transferred from Wii Fit will be transferrable to Wii Fit Plus? Nice, I wonder if that'll work both ways, or whether we'll have one save file on it's own between the two games

The release date in Europe is November 6, 2009.
The Wit Fit Plus disc on its own is a real bargain!

$20, good price point, I only wish Wii Sports Resort had been a better price, like $30 with the WM+
They should keep making all 'Wii...' games at $20, budget titles but with quality. Show the shovelwarers how it's done.

$19.99. is a good sign this will be reasonably priced here in the UK, too. Right now Amazon has it listed at £29.99... with a RRP of £49.99!!! That's just for the game alone.

hmm. i think when i buy the disc alone what i do is i put it in my wii and it asks me if you want to install wii fit plus to your hardrive then when i pop in my first wii fit game it will use the installed wii fit plus softwear to add on to the game because i dont think the wii fit plus disc comes with all the original 40 games
