31-Day Wii Fit U Full Game Trial Version Available November 1st

North American Wii U owners, if you have in your possession a Wii Balance Board, Nintendo is giving you a next-generation opportunity to get exercising! The trial version of Wii Fit U will be launching on the Nintendo eShop on November 1st – a 31-day demo that includes the entirety of the game.

Starting Nov. 1, Wii U owners who own a Wii Balance Board accessory and have access to a broadband Internet connection will be able to download a free trial version of Wii Fit U from the Nintendo eShop. The trial software is not an abbreviated version of the game – it’s the full Wii Fit U experience. The trial will be downloadable from the Nintendo eShop between Nov. 1, 2013, and Jan. 31, 2014, and will work for 31 days from when it is first played.

Alternatively, players can purchase the Fit Meter accessory for Wii U, an activity meter that can be synced to the Wii Fit U trial demo to unlock it indefinitely. The Fit Meter takes the Wii Fit U workout wherever you go, allowing you to update your in-game profile to reward you for your daily activities away from the game. 

For fans of the original Wii Fit, this seems like an unmistakable deal – thanks to the cost of the Fit Meter, obtaining the full Wii Fit U experience without end becomes cheap and painless. You can then put your body through the motions with over 70 different activities ranging from fitness games to yoga to strength training and everything in between.

The Wii Fit Meter will become simultaneously available when the digital trial version of Wii Fit U arrives – Japan gets this trial version October 31st, North America and Europe on November 1st, and Australia on November 2nd. Packaged versions of the game hit shelves later in December, with the exception of Japan’s date which is February 1st.
