'Wii Fit' coming May 19, just in time for going outside


Man, this Wii Fit thing’s sure taking it’s time getting here. The Wall Street Journal is reporting a release date of May 19 here in the US, which should be just about the time that people start going outside to exercise.

It was released in Japan on December 1 of last year and went on to sell more than 250,000 copies in the first week at roughly $75 a pop.

The game, you’ll recall, includes the Wii Balance Board and guides you through various aerobic, stretching, and strength training exercises.
