Publisher Black Bean has just released some more screenshots and information about its upcoming Wii fitness title, NewU Fitness: First Personal Trainer, which is currently in development by Lightning Fish. This latest attempt to get gamers exercising, or at least moving something other than their thumbs, aims to be the complete workout package. In addition to giving gamers the ability to monitor and keep track of their meals and calorie intakes, it will also allow them to set up and work out a programme for themselves according to specific goals – just as if they had their own personal trainer. These goals fall into four categories: Sport, Shape, General Health, and Special. I know that non-gamers or the more casual gamers are quite taken with this stuff, but I wonder how many hardcore gamers would be into it?
