Wii Fit U Update 1.2.0 Trims And Slims for a Better U

Posted by Liam Doolan

Addresses a few errors and adds some additional features

Regular users of Wii Fit U will have noticed a brief update when booting up the game for their, presumably, daily exercise routine yesterday. For those wondering what exactly the update to Ver. 1.2.0 addressed, it was a few minor adjustments and fixes further fine tuning of the overall experience of Wii Fit U.

The update details provided are courtesy of Nintendo of America’s support page:

Ver. 1.2.0 [Released 3/13/14]

  • Users that have a Fit Meter registered can now access their own data immediately after starting Wii Fit U from the Fit Meter transfer screen.
  • Users can now post their Fit Meter activity screen to Miiverse after starting Miiverse from the Home Menu.
  • At the Piggy Bank screen, after transitioning from the Fit Meter, users can now display the consumed calorie value that was just transferred.
  • An error was resolved that could cause miscalculation of "Fit Meter Challenge" data if it was transferred from the Fit Meter at the exact time the date changes.

This update follows Ver. 1.1.1 which was released towards the end of last year and repaired a bug that disabled users from advancing in the game when attempting to transfer data from Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, and also another bug that caused data measured in the Fit Meter to reflect incorrectly when transferred.

Let us know how your experiences with Wii Fit U's update to Ver. 1.2.0 are going, and if you're still going strong with Wii Fit U in general.

Thanks to Ryan Millar for the tip!

Not playing the game much anymore. It's mostly good, but not as fresh as Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus were back in the day.

I love this game and I have all 3 Versions of the game, lest see this adjustment!!!



SMW said:

Good fixes, but they really need to fix the My Routine next. I've had it since launch and they STILL nag me about mirror mode every single day. That and the need to grab the controller after every exercise are the only things driving me crazy. My Routine used to steamlined in Wii Fit Plus, what happened?

I hate the fact that the game goes on weight alone to create your mii's appearance. I'm 6'2. I weigh 235 pounds. Sounds fat right? Except for the fact that I'm actually not. I work out all the time. My wife is a personal trainer. She is 5'3. She weighs 140. She's freaking ripped! Abs of steel. According to her Mii, she's a bit over weight. We did the trial, but since there's no way to reduce her mii's size other than tell her to stop lifting weights, she's stuck with it. I can live with a comically chubby mii. She can't. So hence, no full game purchase.

I like the streamlined fit meter download. I loaded it up last night and was pleasantly surprised to see the update. When Nintendo launches the system update to boot software straightaway at power on, getting into Wii Fit for a weigh in and data dump will be even better.



Whopper744 said:

I agree with @SMW . This game talks to much and moves too slowly to be very beneficial. And you have to pick up the game pad and sit it back down between almost everything. It really needs streamlined.

Still can't choose to use kilograms if my region is England.......



mercurio2054 said:


i saw my wii u updating last night.....
and i say... i see what you're doing there...



noctowl said:

@Shworange I have the same issues. I'm not in the same shape as you as your wife, but I'm certainly not as fat as my Mii makes it out to be.

I suppose you could play with the height until it looks thinner. But fat Mii is more amusing.



burninmylight said:


I hear ya, brother. I'm 5"8' and about 175 lbs., so the game assumes I'm Homer Simpson. It said I need to lose about 15 lbs. Ever thought that some of us worked out and kept ourselves in great shape before this game was invented, Nintendo?



Fazermint said:

Don't care about the fit meter, neither I nor my gf uses it. Pls add a mute function on that annoying trainer.



NoPLo said:

They should release an update to fix Wii Fit Trainer's face, she looks weird in comparison to Smash WFT.



Squashy said:

@bagszi Why do you want to do that? Stones and pounds are where it's at! It always gets on my nerves when we have to have kph in racing games instead of mph because of the rest of Europe. Darn foreigners trying to force their metric system on us lol.



Just_Ethan said:

@NoPLo She/he/they got a redesign. What you're calling the "Smash WFT" is their original designs from the first two games.



bagszi said:

I'm Hungarian. We use metric system here. But since Hungary don't really have Nintendo support(just imported games) I need to set my country to England to have working services on Nintendo Consoles. Everyone does the same in Hungary and pretty much other countries that don't have Nintendo servers. So It is as annoying to be forced to use stones and pounds as for you to use kph in racing games.
These thing should be optional for every user, not determined by country settings.
In Wii I had the freedom to change country any time, but in wiiU if I set it to an other country that uses kg/cm I can't use the internet anymore in my profile...



RedYoshi999 said:

Was this the big maintenance that started the Nintendo Direct rumours? Could've sworn when I checked the eShop last night that it said there'd be 6 hours of maintenance on the 17th/18th.



BertoFlyingFox said:

They basically dont take any type of muscle into account. Mii characters dont even have muscles to form, so instead it turns all that into fatness because Nintendo for some odd reason accounted for fatness but not muscles. There's no point if you dont take the entirity of the body into account, because then a lot of people will get completely fake results with useless goals.



Nosferatu-Zodd said:


Indeed, I'm a former college athlete (retired?), and my wife is pregnant. Both of us were considered obese. I could give two Squirts, but that just hurts a lady...



Everly said:

I think it is stupid that you can't have multiple profiles like we could in the previous version. You have to back all the way out and sign in as a different NNID user to change to a different profile. How is this smart?



ULTRA-64 said:

@AFSpeirs I hear you there man, they seem to like the annoying labels to stay on things at the big N!! I just downloaded that final dlc pack for pikmin 3 and the e shop tag is still there on the title page despite me buying all of it. Glad I'm not the only person this bugs.



dumedum said:

@bagszi this at least provides hope that with updates they might some day offer that option. I was sure they were going to fix that from the Wii's version...



spidey1010 said:

It's good to hear about other people with fatter-than-necessary Miis.
I'll admit I'm overweight, but damn my Mii looks fat.
Fatter than me.
I hope.



Pianist88 said:

Lol, all this concern about the Mii's representation of one's body image is an indicator of Hollywood's (and television's) negative impact on self-esteem and perception. Society has its priorities all screwed up.



C-Olimar said:

Hey, how about advertising the game now Nintendo? It saddens me that Nintendo UK have given up on the Wii U



iphys said:

Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't seem to do the simple test anymore. I hope that changes after I've done the regular one for a week or whatever again.



Nosferatu-Zodd said:

I disagree. It's actually more of an insult to an in shape individual to see a depiction of them as a detestable fat body, when we work hard to not look like the masses around us, than anything else. That is what fat booth or caricature artists are good for. Not an out of touch, or partially functional video game to decide. If it were just a fat avatar, that would be one thing. But to tell a grown man, athlete, weightlifter, etc. to weigh like 165 or you are obese every time he fires up the game is bogus...

All that aside, it's fun to play with wifey on my off days from running or going to the gym.



Pianist88 said:

It's fairly common knowledge that the game merely uses the imprecise BMI as a measurement tool. It seems like a tall order to ask a toy company to supply us with calipers to measure body fat percentage. Unfortunately, the vast majority of people playing the game probably do not exercise like you or I, so BMI is probably accurate enough for them.
If one is only interested in the mini-games, then there shouldn't be a need to weigh in at all. Personally, I don't use Wii Fit since I like to sit down like a bum while playing video games after an eight-mile run.



FJOJR said:

@Pianist88 Some of us actually would like Nintendo to get off their butts and improve their product. They have the technology.



Squashy said:

@bagszi O right I see, I stupidly just assumed that you were from England as well, apologies if I came across a bit rude. That sounds like a bizarre situation for Hungarian Nintendo players, so if you go into a games shop in Hungary, are all the Nintendo consoles and games UK versions?



bagszi said:

Well, yes. Mainly imported from england. Even my 3DS has a UK charger, so I had to get a converter for it(We have europlug here). Some other stores imports from Australia since they also have european-type games, which works with the UK consoles. But the main importer was the Stadlebauer(Austrian). So there are really many kind of imports, but mainly the European & english languaged games. Now that Nintendo has ended their contracts with Stadlebauer, things will change a bit, but as I said there are a lot of stores that import from elsewhere. We are not really a big country so Nintendo don't really see us as a potential market, but We do our best to make a great Nintendo community here with meetings and events even if it's not official. Anyway I think I had whined enough for today.
