US pricing for Wii Fit set

The Wii Fit is scheduled to arrive on North American shores in just over a month's time, and Nintendo today released pricing for the Balance Board accessory and interactive fitness game combo. Nintendo's much-anticipated release, which includes a balance board and game disc that includes over 40 specific games and activities, will retail for nearly $90 when it hits store shelves on May 19.

The wireless Balance Board will act as the interface with the game's activities that include yoga, aerobics, strength training and balance. Through their Mii characters, individual family member can set fitness goals and track their progress over time.

In the same announcement, Nintendo is offering the first 1,000 shoppers who put down a $5 deposit for the title at its New York Rockefeller Plaza World store a limited edition Wii Fit T-shirt. The shirt will feature an autograph and image of the company's game designer, Shigeru Miyamoto.

As of mid-February, Wii Fit already sold over 1.4 million copies since its early December launch in Japan. Europe receives the Fit next week, on April 25th.
