    Yay for games that get us off our arseis
    (Till somebody makes a handheld controller for it)
    And YAY for more game controllers that will fill the cuboard
    Taking a page from Konami's DDR handbook, Bandai Namco Games is releasing a mat based title sometime this year in Japan. Called Family Trainer, the game originally appeared on the Nintendo Famicom back in 1986. The Wii version is an exercise game that uses both a bundled mat and the Wii-mote. Mini-games include log jumping, canoning, mountain "sliding", Whack-a-mole, waterfall climbing and a Temple of Doom-style train ride. Nice to see such strong third party support for the Wii, but too bad they couldn't figure out a way to get this to use the Wii Balance Board.

    I'm sure the folks over at WiiFit (1 million sold in Japan) are nervous.

    This looks cool... I hope we get it soon, instead of waiting years for it like most japanese stuff...

    Nothing could be lamer than WiiFit.
    Nothing.

    This is some stiff competition, though, huh?
