Wii Fit Japan Launch Soon

Nintendo this morning revealed that it would release the Wii Fit before the end of the year in Japan, boosting the company's already high console sales for the holidays. The peripheral and game combo is unchanged from its announcement at E3 this year and includes a balance board that reacts to pressure on each half; users can play dance and exercise games, including the Wii Fit game bundle that comes with the console or new games made to support the accessory. Mario and Sonic at the Beijing Olympics will sell ahead of the hardware on November 22 to help get users started.

The peripheral should be available just weeks before the end of the year, shipping on December 1st for $75 in Nintendo's home country. The console maker has yet to announce the final ship date or price for the North American version, though it is now not expected to release until early 2008 without an impending announcement.
