Walk With Me! (DS) - due out February 20th!

Written by a WiiTalk member on Saturday, 7 February 20092 Comments

Last year, Nintendo brought us Wii Fit, and everyone agreed that getting fit really could be fun! It has continued to be an overwhelming success, still hitting media headlines regularly.  So to compliment that, they are now bringing us Walk With Me. This game cart comes with 2 activity meters, which can be carried in a pocket to act as digital pedometers.

So how does it all work, and where is the incentive to walk?

First of all, you can upload you Mii wirelessly from your Wii to use in this game - nice! If you don’t have a Wii, don’t panic, because you can still create a new one on the DS.  The cart holds data for 4 people, and extra activity meters can be bought separately.  Set up a user file, then set yourself a daily target - they suggest 3000 steps to get you going.  Whenever you want to check your progress, simply fire up your DS, point the meter at it, and press a button - hey, presto! Your DS will now analyse the data and report back to you.  The more you walk, the more rewards you will get, in the form of mini games and trivia quizes.  The DS will also tell you how much electricity your walking for that day could have produced in terms of household items, such as boiling a kettle etc.  Your data can be uploaded to a central database, which displays the global scores of all participants.  You are able to view a cumulative global walk around the world, and once the Earth has been conquered, a walk to other planets is also measured!

At first glance, the graphics don’t look that appealing to me, so I’m not sure whether this will prove as popular as its big brother, Wii Fit. Also I cannot find any video footage to link to either. So only time will tell. It’s definitely interesting, that’s for sure. What do you think?

    One other issue is when you are in a scenario where you do not have a cosigner then you may actually want to try to exhaust all of your financial aid options. You can get many awards and other scholarship grants that will offer you money to help with college expenses. Thx for the post.
