    I definitely need to exercise more often than I do. Workouts are difficult and boring to me. Maybe this would help give me more of an incentive to. The workouts look fairly advance and useful. My family would definitely make fun of me endlessly for it though so maybe not.

    Your logic is incorrect I feel, why can't it be more than one thing, ps4 and xbox are, they have access to streaming sites and have built in Web browsers

    Mostly because Wii Fit sold well and parents don't want their kids to be fat?

    If somehow I managed to get this game by itself, is it possible that I can play without the special accessories, or are those accessories mandatory?
    If not that I can play with just Joy-cons, I already do a considerable amount of walking on most days every week.

    Nintendo need to make note

    NOT COMPATIBLE WITH NINTENDO SWITCH LITE, the switch that replaces the 3ds even tho nintendo said the switch will not be a replacement of the 3ds.

    This thing looks so gay. It looks worse than Labo or any of the plastic hunks of crap shat out during the Wii era.

    I didn't knew that making exercise in a fun/different way turned you gay, please explain me what research have you made to reach that conclusion. :unsure:

    Another reason, on top of what everyone else has said, is that it sells even more switch consoles to the casual market. Mario and Zelda games are aimed at other markets. Whether it is your kind of thing or not, it is a good business decision to aim at the casual market and is the reason the Wii massively outsold the 360 and PS3 despite being underpowered by comparison. Also, people who buy the Switch initially for casual games will, in many cases, decide to give games like Mario and Zelda a go and Nintendo will sell even more of those!

    There is no question that it was a good decision for Nintendo, and in my opinion it looks fantastic.

    Just like those youtube videos where people go to thrift stores for retro games only to find tons of wii fit boards for $5. This garbage will be the next thing

    I honestly can't say how this will turn out. From the trailer, it mostly looks like a bunch of wii(u) fit minigames stringed together. My guess is that the people wanting to play an RPG will find the fitness exercices tedious whereas the fitness enthusiasts will be annoyed if they can't play the exercises they want, won't be able to track things like what they achieved, how much calories and which muscles were tracked, and so on. So in theory, this seems like something that will fall between two audiences (and really pleasing neither). Then again...this is nintendo. They've made weirder stuff work. So...could be interesting.


    (but really: why not bring back the wii balance board? Most fitness gamers will already have the thing, so it's just a matter of figuring out on how to connect it to this new console)




    ...


    You do know that 22 million is a pretty high number for potential video game sales, right? :unsure:


    If not: 22 million potential sales is a pretty high number. Even if you or me aren't among those customers, that's still a very good reason to make this game.
